SW Broadway: The much-anticipated Raven & Rose will officially open in the historic Ladd Carriage House on January 4th. Former Park Kitchen chef David Padberg mans the kitchen (dishing out rustic, comforting dishes like rotisserie chicken, braised short ribs with Yorkshire pudding, and rabbit with creamed kale) while barman Dave Shenaut (most recently of Riffle NW) slings historic cocktails at the restaurant's two bars. Stay tuned for photos of the space, coming soon on Eat Beat. 1331 SW Broadway

Local Choice will be open Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm and on Sunday from 8 am to 6 pm. 830 NW Everett Street
