Different addresses — same great eats. Three popular Seattle restaurants recently packed up their knives and moved to new locations.

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 appetities. Here’s where to go:

Simply Soulful, 2321 S. Jackson St.
Known for: Hearty soul food + tasty sweet potato pie
What’s new: More entrees like braised oxtail + pork chops — plus, room for live music and local art.

Sohn Mat By Tae, 3315 Beacon Ave. S.
Known for: Creative takes on Asian-SoCal fusion
What’s new: Meat cooked over charcoal, snacks like smoked jalapeño dip + kimchi stew, and a robust drinks list.

Taurus Ox, 903 19th Ave. E.
Known for: Laotian comfort dishes
What’s new: Khao poon (noodle soup with shredded chicken + quail egg in a red curry coconut broth), options for kids, and more cocktails.
