A friend sent this to me, since I live a block away from this new restaurant. She did not tell me the source, sorry ---
Lifting the Veil
It's been many months since word got out about the impending opening of Veil (555 Aloha St., Seattle; 206-216-0600), set to offer "progressive American cuisine" in a slick little 45-seat bar and its adjoining 50-seat dining room. But this week chef Shannon Galusha and managing partner Erik Lindstrom set an opening date: Nov. 11.
Excitement about the mysteriously named Veil has been building at a steady clip: one that's moved faster than the build-out of the restaurant itself, which straddles the corner of Aloha and Taylor streets, near Seattle Center. (Note: If you play restaurant geography, it's one block east of Crow, Sushi Land and Panos Kleftiko.)
