The Stoneburner Restaurant and the Olympic Rooftop Pavilion will be opening on the in Seattle’s Hotel Ballard on Tuesday, June 25.

The masterminds behind the openings are restaurateurs James Weimann and Deming Maclise. The two have opened Bastille Café & Bar, Poquitos, Macleod’s Scottish Pub, and Von Trapp’s in the Seattle area.

Stoneburner Restaurant gets its name from Jason Stoneburner, executive chef at Bastille Café & Bar. He and James Lechner, Bastille general manager and wine director, will be operating partners at the new restaurant. It will be located on the ground floor and will focus on Mediterranean-influenced stone hearth cooking and handmade pastas.

Staying true to their timeless style, Weimann and Maclise have decorated Stoneburner with antiques from around the globe. The bar features decommissioned wood from the Italian Embassy in Buenos Aires and the ceiling is made from turn-of-the-century pressed tin from an old school house.
