December 28th, 2010 · No Comments

The owner of the well known Hardware Store Restaurant on Vashon Island has officially opened a restaurant in the U-District. A few months ago, we first reported that Melinda Sontgerath and her husband Dick applied for a liquor license at the old Fondi Pizza location. Now, 50 North has opened at 5001 25th Ave NE.

The menu features organic salads, Lahvosh ‘Pizzas’, all-natural burgers and steaks, seafood, vegetarian entrees, Gluten-free entrees and desserts.  In a press release, Sontgerath says she chose the U-District because “this area is a hub for so many Seattle students, professionals, and families. Whether they are joining us for a meal or just dropping by for take out, I think they will find this location to be convenient and comfortable – a U-District gathering place.”
