Despite the pandemic, Kristi Brown of That Brown Girl Cooks! forged ahead to open her long-awaited project in the heart of the Central District. Located on the historic site of Liberty Bank, the first Black-owned bank in the Pacific Northwest, Brown features “Seattle soul” dishes — from smoky berbere grilled chicken to black-eyed peas hummus. If you can’t snag one of the 20 highly coveted, covered and heated outdoor seats, Brown’s Southern favorites with a Seattle spin are available to go.
