As the recession appears to be slowing, restaurant closures in Seattle appear to be following suit. We lost a couple of big players -- two national restaurant chains shut down local branches, and the Organic to Go sandwich chain closed a couple of its downtown locations. Here's the list of restaurants that Voracious reported had shuttered this month:
Pies By Jenny (farmers-market stand)
Organic to Go locations on 3rd and 4th Aves.
Up for sale but not closed: Siam Pura and GreenGo
However, that's 9 closures compared to 19 openings, four of which were new locations for established restaurants and one of which (Piroshky Piroshky) was a reopening; that number also doesn't include Ballard's three new sweet shops/convenience markets. Full list of openings after the jump, with a few more to come in the coming weeks.
