Kenmore’s new Seaplane Restaurant and Bar opened its doors to the public in November. The aviation-themed eatery, which broke ground in January, serves a diverse menu adjacent to the Hangar Cafe, across the street from Kenmore City Hall.

Seaplane is one of the many projects managed by MainStreet Property Group LLC as part of the revitalization of downtown Kenmore. The partnership between MainStreet and the city started in 2012. The residents of Kenmore were hungry for a new sit-down dining destination, according to MainStreet.

Restaurateurs Deming Maclise and James Weimann, who have opened multiple restaurants throughout Seattle including Bastille Cafe and Bar, Poquitos and Stoneburner, teamed up with executive chef Jason Stoneburner to open Seaplane. Erik Carlson is a partner in the bar operation. The menu features pizzas, sharable roasted vegetables, salads and a burger, along with wine, cocktails and drafts from local breweries.

Happy hour is daily from 3-5:30 p.m., with dinner from 5-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 5-9 p.m. on Sunday.
