Wild Ginger‘s Denny Triangle locations carries on the new contemporary look and feel of the brand’s Bellevue location, but in a way all its own and on a slightly smaller scale. At roughly 5,000 square feet, this is SkB’s second Wild Ginger for the owners. “Wild Ginger Denny Triangle, in the heart of Seattle’s tech-centric Denny Triangle neighborhood, is surrounded by highly-educated and international clientele. A such, we adapted the aesthetic to encourage and respond to the social aspect of those customers, both for lunch, dinner and happy hour,” notes co-designer Kyle Gaffney. A variety of seating abounds, from the “fresh bar” with views into the brand’s fist ever display kitchen to booths and quick lunch highboy tables. The bar acts as a centerpiece and visual lantern casting its glow on both sides of the prominent street corner location. Small, blown glass pendants from Bocci hang from a custom-designed armature and add a warm, coppery glow to the space while making the double-height ceiling volume feel more cozy.
The restaurant seats 140 diners for lunch and dinner service, with nine seats in front of an exhibition cooking bar and a further 19 seats at a U-shaped food & beverage bar. The restaurant serves lunch five days a week and dinner seven days a week. The restaurant also offers room service to the residences in the tower above.
