MainStreet partnered with the City of Kenmore to revitalize the downtown area and start to create the downtown that it is today. This partnership started in 2012 when Kenmore was looking for a developer partner to purchase underutilized Park and Ride and vacant strip mall properties that were acquired by the City. Through the development, we were able to create new pedestrian amenities, streetscapes and overall walkability.
The residents of Kenmore are hungry for a new sit-down dining destination, so we're proud to be a part of introducing a new restaurant experience in downtown Kenmore. Seaplane Kitchen + Bar will be a venture among James Weimann, Deming Maclise and chef Jason Stoneburner, who previously collaborated on Poquitos, Rhein Haus and Bastille. Erik Carlson will be a partner in the bar operation.
