Terroir turnover: Husband-and-wife partners Linda and Cameron Addy are planning a mid-July opening for their new restaurant Belly
, to be housed in the old Terroir space at 3500 NE Martin Luther King Blvd. The two have dozens of years of experience between them—Cameron was most recently chef de cuisine at Papa Haydn West and Linda is general manager at Salty's on the Columbia—and are working on a new American menu utilizing the bounty of the area.
As Concordia residents, the Addys are hoping for an unpretentious feel (thus the whimsical name Belly), with equal appeal to families, couples looking for a night out and just good ol' neighborhood eats. Seating 70, the space won't change too much, Linda Addy says, just benefit from a bit of warmth from some cosmetic changes, and they'll be keeping that fabulous wood-fired oven for pizzas and more. Joining them will be Marianne Ogura, current wine buyer for QFC Sellwod and Caprial's bistro employee.
