The “Upper Fremont” revival continues. You may have noticed the windows at 4262 Fremont Avenue have been papered up as a new company preps the space. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that it’s deli paper that’s being used since the business moving in is Dot’s Delicatessen.
Seattle Met spoke with Miles James, the owner of this new venture, about the new shop.
James describes Dot’s not so much as a traditional butcher shop but a place where patrons will come for lunch—the menu will include hot dogs, Belgian frites, muffuletta—then leave with cuts of meat or the handmade sausages, terrines, and pates he’ll stock. “It’ll be good, high-end stuff, but not overfussed.”
James is best known for his cart, the Seattle Sausage Company. He’s also worked at Campagne, Union, Cremant and Lecosho.
Dot’s is set to open sometime this spring. Along with nearby restaurants Hunger, Rialto, Via Tribunali, Paseo, Swingside Cafe and the recent arrival of Uneeda Burger, the area between 42nd and 44th is quickly becoming a culinary epicenter for Fremont.
