Anniversary at the Broiler

March 1, 2016 is Derek Cockbain’s twentieth anniversary as owner of the iconic Wedgwood Broiler restaurant!

Located in the heart of Wedgwood at 8230 35th Ave NE, the Wedgwood Broiler traces its roots to the original founder of Wedgwood’s neighborhood identity, Albert Balch. Balch owned the corner property at NE 85th Street and used it for almost fifteen years only as a parking and staging area for his construction equipment and supplies.  In the busy years of the 1950s as the new Wedgwood neighborhood began to fill up with families, Balch saw the need for a real sit-down, fine-dining restaurant, so he established the Broiler as a steakhouse.

Today, the Broiler menu still features classic American menu items.  Take a look at the Broiler page for the open hours, and watch their Facebook page for specials.

In the month of March one of the Broiler’s signature dishes, corned beef and cabbage, will be offered every Monday as well as on St. Patrick’s Day.

We thank Broiler owner Derek Cockbain and his staff for demonstrating the true spirit of Wedgwood in their hospitality and neighborhood activism.
