Emory’s on Silver Lake will keep name, new owners say

According to new ownership at Anthony’s Restaurants, the biggest change will be where Emory’s sources its ingredients.

EVERETT — The new name for Emory’s on Silver Lake?

Emory’s on Silver Lake.

That’s right: Anthony’s Restaurants, the Everett mainstay’s new owners, are keeping the name, as well as Emory’s menu.

Early rumors circulated that the new concept would be called Anthony’s Lake House, but after some discussion, Elliott said there was no reason to change the name.

“What Emory and Molly Cole built is loved by so many, and it’s an amazing location with a great atmosphere and service,” Anthony’s marketing director Kirsten Elliott said. “And as a family-owned business, honoring the legacy of a family is something we hold dear.”

Emory’s will reopen at 2 p.m. Thursday.

The menu will largely stay the same, as well as Emory’s happy hours.

The biggest change will be where Emory’s sources its ingredients. Anthony’s has its own seafood company that services all the Northwest restaurant group’s locations. The company sources seafood selections from fisheries that are “committed to sustainable practices,” per Anthony’s website. Anthony’s also partners with local ranchers, and they age and hand-cut all their beef selections.

Chef Adolpho Vega Tufino has worked at Emory’s since 2018 and will continue serving up woodstone pizza, steak dinners and other Emory’s favorites. General Manager Steve Medalia will also remain on staff, as well as “most of the team members,” Elliott said.

Anthony’s will continue Emory’s loyalty program and honor any outstanding gift cards. Emory’s on Silver Lake gift cards are redeemable for two years but won’t be accepted at any other Anthony’s location.

Original owners Emory and Molly Cole officially retired on Feb. 27, after nearly three decades of running the restaurant. Emory Cole was in the local restaurant industry for 44 years. Before opening his namesake in 1994, he owned The Seahorse in Mukilteo.

Calling it the “end of an era,” Molly and Emory Cole announced the sale of their Everett eatery to Anthony’s Restaurants last month. The family-owned seafood chain owns more than 30 locations throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Everett locations include Anthony’s HomePort and Anthony’s Woodfire Grill.

“We look forward to reopening and welcoming back guests,” Elliott said.
