Butchers, Bakers & Cocktail Makers

After four years operating as a pop-up dinner club, the trio of islanders behind Meat & Noodle will open a butcher shop, bar and kitchen in town this fall.
Chef and butcher Lauren Garaventa made the announcement last weekend in an email sent to those on Meat & Noodle’s mailing list. She said the establishment will be called The Ruby Brink and will open in the Vashon Landing building at the northeast corner of Bank Road and Vashon Highway. The other two partners in the new business are Rustle Biehn and restauranteur Jake Heil, who have worked with Garaventa over the years.
