EVERETT — The Port of Everett is filling out its waterfront “Restaurant Row” with the addition of two more new eateries, due to break ground early next year.
A new location for Tapped Public House and a year-round fish market serving up fish and chips will join the roster of restaurants taking shape on the port’s Waterfront Place, the port announced Monday. Both restaurants will be operated The Way Group Hospitality, owners of three existing Tapped locations in Camano Island, Mill Creek and Mukilteo.
The newly announced businesses are the final additions to fill out two multi-tenant, mixed-use buildings anticipated to begin construction in early 2024, the port said.
Tapped will anchor a two-story, 12,000-square-foot building to be shared with Rustic Cork Wine Bar, Hamilton Cellars and an outpost of frozen yogurt chain Menchie’s. The pub will occupy the top floor and feature a rooftop deck with outdoor seating, plus a retail store and walk-up takeout window on the ground level. The new building will go up on a lot just south of recently opened portside dining options Fisherman Jack’s and South Fork Baking Company.
The new fish and chips spot, The Net Sheds, will join Everett’s Lazy Boy Brewing in a planned 6,000-square-foot building at the corner of Seiner and West Marine View drives, overlooking Seiner Wharf. Its name pays homage to a former occupant of the same portside space, a row of sheds where local fishermen stored gear and socialized during the peak of the port’s historic fishing season.
“Our newest concept is inspired by the Port and heritage of the site, with a local and seasonally driven curated selection of world-class seafood,” The Way Group partner Sean Drought said in a statement. “The market and fish bar’s offerings will change daily, just like the tides. Our goal is to be able to put a quality taste and flavor on the plate that is locally grown, harvested and caught products of our culinarily abundant region of the Puget Sound.”
The two new restaurants signed deals with the port for 15-year initial leases, according to the port. The development will also include the addition of 80 parking stalls near The Net Sheds, with more parking space anticipated to be added in upcoming expansions elsewhere at the port.
