SEATTLE— After months of anticipation Trove, the new Capitol Hill project from chefs Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi (Joule, Revel) opens this Sunday. The 4,000-square-foot space includes a bar, noodle counter, Korean barbecue, and parfait window. Eater has photos of the knock-out space. Also new this week: Quality Athletics, a quirky sports bar in Pioneer Square. See inside the bright new space from chef/restauranteur Josh Henderson (Westward, Skillet founder.) [-ESEA-]

PORTLAND— Speaking of trips to Portland, the PDX International Airport is getting a major culinary makeover. The biggest game-changer: an airport location of chefs Adam and Jackie Sappington's popular SE restaurant the Country Cat. The menu hasn't been finalized yet, but a Country Cat outpost could represent a huge upgrade in terms of PDX's breakfast offerings (skillet-fried chicken and braised-beef hash at the airport? Major).

SEATTLEFran's Chocolates is moving into the sprawling former Rainier Brewery space in Georgetown, drawing unavoidable comparisons to Willy Wonka. The huge, fully-restored factory also includes a retail space and drinking chocolate bar. [-ESEA-]
