Many of you might have noticed the construction happening at 5520 S Rainier Ave, the former gas station/auto shop next to Tin Umbrella at Rainier and Findlay. I dug into the Seattle’s public permits and it does, indeed, look like a new restaurant is going in (with a large outdoor seating area).
The permits are listed under a local couple (in 2011, the Seattle Times highlighted their remodel on Beacon Hill) for a business called Big Chickie.
The permits and site plan definitely show a new restaurant under the name of that company, but not too many other details are popping up about the restaurant itself.
With a name like Big Chickie, it’s not too far of a stretch to assume a new chicken restaurant of some kind is going in…but details on what exactly the specifics are have yet to really emerge. Bigchickie.com does seem to lead to a website that’s in development with social media links that have yet to be made public.
Anyone have the details?
