New bar and grill: The Office on Pacific looks at early to mid-August opening

Travis Scheff, owner of The Office on Pacific, said today that the downtown restaurant is 2-3 weeks away from opening. They had planned an Aug. 1 opening. Scheff, who is opening the restaurant with business partner Matthew Henderson at 813 Pacific Ave., said the restaurant has hired a chef, and the menu is entering the final stages of tweaking. The liquor license already has been approved. As I reported in June, the concept is a neighborhood bar and grill, which Scheff described as swanky. He added, “We’re not going to classify it as a sports bar, but it will be somewhere along the same theme.”

This is the first restaurant for Scheff, but not Henderson. He owns a sub shop in West Seattle. They plan a full service bar and grill with mid-level pricing. They’ll be open for lunch and dinner, and plan to stay open on weekends until 2 a.m. The menu will have gourmet burgers and pizza.
