Owners Miles James and Robin Short took to Facebook last night to share the bad news: Dot's Charcuterie and Bistro, the sublimely meaty spot that began life in 2011 as Dot's Delicatessen, is closing. Today, Friday, June 6, is its last day in business.
Oh, Dot's. I love your fries. I love your frankfurter. I love the friend who brought me both of those things when I was home with a newborn this past winter. In February, Dot's changed things up a bit, morphing from a butchery and sandwich shop to a proper bistro and nighttime dinner destination (with the lovely Anna Wallace running the front of house and overseeing the beverages). James previously cooked at Cremant and helped Ethan Stowell open Union, so he has always balanced his meat credentials with a proper dining background.
Here's the Facebook message from Dot's, urging everyone to come in today for a proper goodbye and one final lunch or dinner. Eater Seattle has more details from James (and a really sad quote from Wallace).
