General Porpoise is a multi-concept restaurant from Sea Creatures (Renee Erickson’s James Beard Award winning restaurant group) that turns one large volume into 3 distinct and intimately scaled spaces stretching down the block in Seattle’s bustling Capitol Hill neighborhood. Bar Melusine celebrates the French Atlantic with oysters, crepes, pré salé lamb, and more, in a sea of tonal greens. Bateau re-imagines the recently retired Sea Creatures restaurant, Boat Street Café, as a modern steak house with a view into an in-house dry-aging room. General Porpoise, a doughnut shop and multi-roaster serving filled, yeasted doughnuts is a sun-lit, bright, white space accented with shocks of radish pink. All three dining rooms hug the street and position diners close to a tall, expansive, glass storefront. Detailing is traditional, pared-down to a crisp, contemporary line. Herringbone flooring in wood and tile, rustic whitewashed wood siding, brass fixtures, and custom lights give consonance to the whole.
