Dog & Pony changes with makeover: Check it out | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"The night of the opening, friends told me that they loved the new interpretation of the menu and appreciated the new design, despite the rather radical changes."

I am a long-time patron of the Dog and Pony Alehouse and Grill that just had a visit from “Restaurant: Impossible.”

I did some research about past projects like the Spunky Monkey in Auburn and found there was some trepidation about the changes. When asked if they would do it again, the resounding answer was NO.

The night of the opening, friends told me that they loved the new interpretation of the menu and appreciated the new design, despite the rather radical changes.

I was with the group that had the opportunity to speak with Chef Robert Irvine and tried to communicate the close relationship the D&P had with the community. Many of the previous interior design aspects were hand made by members of that community. They saved a small corner as an homage.

I will continue to strongly support Kristen Fisher, the owner, and the staff and encourage all to come and check out the new Dog and Pony.

Chris Sutton,
Renton
