Food News: Whym to open in Minnie's locale

Sometimes when I'm working on my Insider column for the magazine, I know I'm writing about stories others will break before the issue publishes. That's the way it goes when you're working 3 months ahead of publish. For instance, I'm working on our August issue right now. Talk about a mind melt: YOU try to write about tomatoes when it's 43 degrees out.

But I digress. The reason I'm bringing this up is because this exact thing happened this morning. Mark Fefer wrote a little blurb on Minnie's becoming Whym on Voracious today. He didn't have much info on the news, but I do!

That's because I talked with Bridget Scott (the new owner) a month ago, when I wrote about it for our July issue.

So, since Fefer broke the story, I figure I'll fill you in on what I know. Read all about Whym, the soon-to-open 24-hour diner on my Seattle Mag blog page.

So this isn't an outpost of the NYC Whym?

Nope, locally owned by the folks behind the Hurricane.

tomatoes? Right now? Oy. Although this weather has gotten me to thinking longingly of summer peaches (Sosio's has the best in town, although the best I had were at the Twisp farmer's market. And when the metropolitan markets were still thriftways... well, clearly I've been dreaming away). Plus, even if the weather was nice, tomatoes in Seattle are a tough topic. Just growing them here is a pain.
