With his acquisition of the Subway at Third and Lenora, Tom Douglas has now expanded his restaurant empire to include every restaurant in Belltown.

“Subway presented by Tom Douglas will maintain that signature Subway smell while offering an elevated sandwich experience,” said Shia Miller, the restaurateur’s spokesman. “The $5 footlongs will be replaced by $15 footlongs and a mixology program that pairs them with seasonal cocktails.”

As the new sign for the re-envisioned Subway presented by Tom Douglas was being put into place  Tuesday afternoon, Belltown resident Harry Marks shook his head.

“I remember when this neighborhood had character, ” said Marks. “And that character was just Subway.”
