New restaurant to move into Alpenland space in October

Work is in process on a new restaurant to take over the former Alpenland location at 2707 78th Ave. S.E. The inside has been gutted.

According to news reports, the restaurant will be named ‘Island Broiler.’ It will feature American-style burgers with an ‘Island theme’ along with Vietnamese-style grilled dishes.

The new business is owned by Seattle restaurateur Bruce Le. The new eatery is scheduled to open in October.

Alpenland first opened in 1974 and closed for good earlier this year.

Its many specialty foods and pretzel rolls were prized by patrons of all ages.
