Is Ballard Becoming The Next Capitol Hill?

It was just recently that we learned that Capitol Hill’s Skillet Diner would be making the move to Ballard this summer season and now two more Capitol Hill establishments are moving in! Burger shop Li’l Woody’s and our favorite Molly Moon’s are expanding their shops to the lovely neighborhood of Ballard. I’m quite fond of Capitol Hill, naturally, after living their for four years and while I can sometimes feel very prideful over my neighborhood, I think the expansion will make all parties involved pretty happy! My logic is this. I am love with Seattle. Capitol Hill and Ballard are both neighborhoods in Seattle. Why not share the love?

I’ve never eaten at Li’l Woody’s, but I’ve heard great things. If this makes it easier for Seattle locals to enjoy their favorite places a little bit closer to them then I’m all for it. I adore Ballard, actually. It’s such a charming neighborhood and the one time I spent a night out there with Jennie, Ashley, and Henry, I only remember great memories.

    You had me scared for a moment. I thought you were going to say that L’il Woody’s was MOVING to Ballard! It’s a great little place.

    Did Molly Moon’s start on Capitol Hill? I also thought Wallingford was the original shop.

    I love Skillet and Molly Moon. Nice to see that they’re so successful! Well deserved! And that will be a good reason to spend more time in Ballard!
