Here's the Plan

lecosho opens!

Sip, sup, and be moved.

Lecosho Opens
Matt Janke (founder and previous owner of Matt’s in the Market) launches a sleek, new restaurant on Harbor Steps, outfitted with African mahogany tables, faux suede banquettes, and an open kitchen.
Why: Dine on Catalan-style fish stew with shrimp, clams, mussels, and halibut; an aioli-drizzled sardine sandwich on walnut bread; or a stuffed suckling pig.
When: Opens Tues., 4 p.m. Daily, 3-10 p.m., bar open until 2 a.m.
Where: 89 University St. (206-623-2101).

Seattle Dance Project: Project Orpheus
What: Choreography veterans Wade Madsen (Cornish), Olivier Wevers (PNB, Whim W’Him) and Eva Stone (Stone Dance Collective) team up to take on the tale of Eurydice and Orpheus.
Why: Gorgeous moves reinterpret the Greek myth, peppered with snakes, furies, and other underworld creatures.
When: Thru Sept. 25.
Where: ACT Theatre, 700 Union St. (206-292-7676). Tickets ($15-$25) online at acttheatre.org.

De.De Sale

What: Designer Jesslyn Blake’s buttery soft purses come in a rainbow of colors and are finished with details like sassy fringe and patchwork.
Why: No guilt here. They’re made from recycled, vintage, and remnant leathers — and they’re up to 50 percent off.
When: Now.
Where: Online at swirl.com.

Cork House Opens
Long-time friends and wine negotiants Travis Scarborough (O’Shea Scarborough Winery) and Josh Fletcher are behind the new Capitol Hill winery and vino boutique.

Where: 1421 10th Ave. (206-323-2675).

Woodinville Whiskey Co. Opens
The newest hooch factory to the burbs opens under the oversight of former Maker’s Mark master distiller David Pickerell.
