The 1,000 sf space seats 17 and will be located adjacent to Neumos  at 925 E Pike Street, with an entrance on 10th Avenue. The restaurant will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. for dining in or take out, with late night hours on Friday and Saturday. Bok a Bok’s menu will also serve Nuemos, The Runaway, and Barboza.

“I’m amped to be opening Bok a Bok on Capitol Hill” said O’Connor. “We’ve spent a great deal of time honing our fried chicken skills down south and are looking forward to our new neighbors trying it out.”

“We are really excited to have Bok a Bok partnering with us to create a great menu for The Runaway, Neumos and Barboza. Brian’s fried chicken, wings, kimchi mac n’ cheese, tots, & sandwiches are a perfect complement to the drinks new bar manager Ryan Lobe is making, and the culture and entertainment we provide. We look forward to being able to offer the full menu at all our events and bars.” said Neumos Co-Owner Jason Lajeunesse.

Bok A Bok’s menu centers around Korean-style fried chicken, with a crispier take on the traditional batter sealing in the juicy, natural flavors from fresh, sustainably-raised chickens. Inspired by O’Connor’s travels throughout Asia, his unique spin on fried chicken sets the restaurant apart from others in the Pacific Northwest.  Guests can pair fried chicken breast; drumsticks, thighs and wings with a selection of house made dipping sauces ranging from sweet to spicy.

The menu also features rice bowls, fried chicken sandwiches, and comfort-inspired sides including kimchi, ginger coleslaw, mac n’ cheese and house-made biscuits.

The drink selection includes Jones soda, sparking waters and toasted barley sweet tea. Party packs of up to 100 wings will be available for customers to customize and take to-go.
