New Seattle Veg Restaurant

Kailash, a new vegetarian fine-dining restaurant, is opening in Seattle.

A new fine-dining, vegetarian restaurant called Kailash will open in Seattle’s Rainier Square this upcoming spring. The team behind Kailash include Greg Atkinson, a current instructor at the Seattle Culinary Academy, and chef Kathy Casey, who will oversee the cocktail menu. “I think a growing international awareness about a new vegetarianism makes this a really unique moment in time to launch a high-end vegetarian restaurant,” Atkinson said. The restaurant will feature an edible garden for sourcing menu ingredients, seating for 175 patrons, and green technologies. Atkinson himself is not a vegetarian, but he sees the opening of a veg restaurant as a logical next step. “At the college, I’ve been teaching sustainability classes, and in a way it follows a natural sequence of events,” he said.
