Sad news from the food front: Txori is closing.
I just got off the phone with owner Carolin Messier, who confirmed that the beloved Belltown tapas bar will soon come under new ownership and a new name.
“It’s been a really challenging year for me personally,” she said, adding the grueling financial climate hasn’t made things easier. “It’s been a heartbreaking decision.”
She mentioned members in the neighborhood will take over the space and rename it Pintxo. Messier is hoping to eventually start looking for a new space, probably in the next year or so.
Seattle Met will be meeting with Messier, so check back soon for updates.
