The New Direction at Corner House, in Pictures
At just over a year old, this super-hip Jefferson Park neighborhood joint has seen some changes recently. First was the departure of chef Matt Selby (who’s since landed at Central Bistro & Bar), then the arrival of his successor, Sharif Villa Cruz, about three weeks ago. And Friday came the announcement that well-known local industry players Leigh Sullivan and Travis Plakke had joined managing partners James Iacino and Scott Kinsey in the operation.
That news was accompanied by the launch of a menu that’s quite a departure from earlier versions: seafood preparations now represent more than half the selections. It makes sense for a couple of reasons: one, Iacino is the president of local distributor Seattle Fish Co., and two, Villa Cruz arrives fresh from a stint at the Glendale branch of Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar. Among the new dishes are raw oysters with roasted-mushroom salsa, tiger-shrimp ceviche atop guacamole in amarillo sauce and those pictured here. Get ready to dig in.
