“modern American food with a twist”
In 2007, Chef Josh Henderson created Skillet Street Food in Seattle, one of the first food experiences of what has since become a prototype for the national street food movement that has swept the country. Out of a vintage Airstream trailer, he created innovative lunch menus based on American-inspired food prepared with classic technique and seasonal ingredients. The reception from Seattle'ites was immediate and passionate. They were drawn to the chef driven food, the excitement of being a part of a new, energetic, urban experience, and to the intimate involvement through the use of social media channels that intensified the connection with the Skillet brand.Since then, the business has grown up. Josh is still creating great menus served throughout the streets of Seattle from the Airstream. But Skillet is now much more than that. It is a thriving catering enterprise, supporting weddings, private parties, and corporate events throughout the Pacific Northwest. It is a food products business, distributing its signature Bacon Jam product through retailers across the US and Canada. And, in the Spring of 2011, it will become a brick-and-mortar restaurant located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.The original street food business has become a brand but has not strayed from its roots. The thread is still there: great food prepared with care, technique and the best of ingredients; an innovative experience that consistently surprises and satisfies; and a feeling of being personally connected to Skillet, in all its manifestations. We see this as our mission - to continue to deliver on these themes and to continue to find new channels though which we can expand the brand and the family of loyal Skillet customers.
The place is perfect for when you are into outdoor dining especially when you would want to spend your time eating with your friends or loved ones! The amazing atmosphere of the place makes your breakfast wonderful!
Rockfish po'boy is absolutely delicious and entirely too big a meal for one person. But so so good, yum!
I got the basic 2 eggs 3 pieces of bacon and potato meal which inexplicably cost $12. Everything was a bit expensive. My eggs were basically uncooked, which could have been on me for asking for “over easy” eggs but they kindly brought me some over medium eggs. Good coffee, got a cup to go!
If you only get one meal in Seattle, make it at Skillet. Open for every meal (and you'll probably come back more than once) you can get pork belly on waffles, chilaquiles, grilled cheese sammies, and tons more. Mmm...
They're really famous for their bacon jam. They make awesome food, brunch especially, but the atmosphere is a little pretentious. This is definitely the kind of place you need to bring an appetite to, since the food is decadent.
