Different addresses — same great eats. Six popular Seattle restaurants recently packed up their knives and moved to new locations — two just in the past week alone and one under the same name, but new ownership.

The bigger digs will allow chefs to experiment with menu items and give customers more room to spread out. Good thing, too — we have big appetites. Here’s what’s new on the block:

Glo’s Cafe, 928 E. Barbara Bailey Way

Known for: Diner breakfast + brunch staples like eggs Benedicts, waffles, and hash browns.
What’s new: Bloody marys (thanks to a new liquor license) and expanded espresso options

Watson’s Counter, 6420 24th Ave. NW

Known for: Korean-influenced comfort food and colorful, cereal-crusted French toast
What’s new: Soft serve ice cream

Kedai Makan, 1449 E. Pine St.

Known for: Malaysian street food like roti jala
What’s new: The ownership, for starters, and more manageable wait times

Simply Soulful, 2321 S. Jackson St.

What’s new: More entrees like braised oxtail + pork chops — plus, room for live music and local art.
