It’s the end of an era, folks. After nearly two years of carrying out his mission to feed the people, Seattle’s beloved Chef Tarik Abdullah has served his last brunch plate under the Morning Star Pop Up name. Worry not. With Morning Star’s doors closed, Chef T can focus on the grand opening of Black & Tan Hall–his cooperatively owned performing art and restaurant venue–which is located in Abdullah’s southend neighborhood stomping ground of Hillman City.
Lucky for us, we were able to go behind the scenes and capture the delicious moments from his last brunch service at The Royal Room. Stay tuned for Tarik’s full cinestory, which we’ll share on the Empowerment section of our website. Until then, enjoy these snapshots!
