Maria Hines Opens New Restaurant in Ballard, Serving Vita

Maria in Istanbul.

Vita loves Maria Hines and Maria Hines loves Vita. We are proud to help her announce the opening of her second restaurant in Seattle: Golden Beetle in Ballard.

Maria is a James Beard Award-winning chef that has been wowing Seattle, and serving Vita coffee, for the past four years at her restaurant Tilth. Golden Beetle will be a pleasant departure for Maria with a focus on the flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean. Maria spent months traveling to Turkey, Lebanon, and Egypt for inspiration. Taking cues from the timeless tradition of ancient street carts in the region, Golden Beetle is sure to be an immersive dining experience.

Golden Beetle opens this Friday, Feburary 18th at 1744 NW Market Street.
