In March 2023, the Kirkland, Washington community welcomed a new Caribbean restaurant to the neighborhood! Arleana’s pays homage to owner Theo Martin’s mother, Lula Arleana Martin. The more sophisticated sibling to Island Soul Rum Bar & Soul Shack in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood, Arleana’s features an elevated French-Caribbean menu that showcases a rotating menu of seafood and seasonal ingredients.

Fun Fact: The mural at Arleana’s by local artist Hiawatha D. honors the late Queen of Creole Cuisine, Leah Chase.
