A look at restaurant news happening this week around Pierce County.
TRAPPER’S SUSHI HAS MOVED
The regional sushi chain Trapper’s opened its new Sunrise Village location in South Hill on Wednesday.
Monday was the last day of service for the old Trapper’s location near South Hill mall, which Trapper O’Keeffe opened in 2010. He also owns Pierce County sushi restaurants in Bonney Lake and Tacoma’s Sixth Avenue neighborhood.
Find the new South Hill Trapper’s at 10305 156th St. E., Puyallup. Visit trapperssushi.net for details.
MARTINI MADNESS IS BACK
The martini festival at Toscanos Italian Grill is back — and so are the hand-painted glasses in which the cocktails are served.
Martini Madness is a six-week celebration of cocktails served in glasses that chef-owner Tom Pantley has an artist custom paint every year for the event. Each week of the celebration features a different cocktail and glass. All a diner has to do to get a glass is simply order the cocktail special of that week.
Find Toscanos Italian Grill at 437 29th St. NE, Puyallup; 253- 864-8600 or toscanospuyallup.com.
BREAKFAST IS ON IN STADIUM
The Stadium neighborhood has gained a new breakfast destination. Shake, Shake, Shake, the retro burger diner from Steve Naccarato and Robert Stocker, is now serving breakfast from 8-11:30 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Find a half dozen styles of waffles (one’s served with fried chicken on a skewer); biscuits and gravy ($5.99/$7.99); pancake-wrapped sausages on a stick, also known as pig-sickles ($7.49), and something that sounds frightening/delicious: “The Doughnut,” an onion ring fried in corn batter and topped with powdered sugar and a slice of Nueske’s bacon ($7.49).
Find Shake Shake Shake at 124 N. Tacoma Ave., Tacoma; 253-507-4060 or shakeshakeshake.me.
