Chef Kristi Brown (owner of the catering company That Brown Girl Cooks) and her son Damon Bomar have one mission: foster community through fresh food and fine cooking. In December 2020, Communion Restaurant & Bar opened in Central District in the historic Liberty Bank Building serving what Chef Kristi calls “Seattle Soul” food — a cultural mix of the Central District, Chinatown-International District, as well as her family roots in Kansas City. You’ll find Southern-inspired dishes with Seattle-area influences on Communion’s menu, like their Fried Catfish Po’Mi (a glorious cross between a fried catfish po’boy and Vietnamese banh mi), Slow Burn black-eyed pea hummus with Ethiopian spices, and BBQ shrimp and grits.
