CLOSURES

Super Six Add to a List
Owners Kamala Saxton and Roz Edison plan to close their beloved Columbia City neighborhood joint Super Six tomorrow. Edison told Eater Seattle that the company needed to reevaluate their focus, saying, "We were trying to do two things well, and we might have done two things mediocrely and that’s not how we want to be." All is not lost, however: The space will become another location of Marination, Saxton and Edison's hit Hawaiian-Korean chain with locations in downtown and West Seattle.

You, too, can eat as well as Martha thanks to Damuck's new book Salad Freak, which contains recipes for seasonal delights like pickled blackberry shallot panzanella with sumac and a BLT potato salad, plus food styling tips so yours will turn out just as Instagram-worthy.
