    B&O Espresso is leaving Capitol Hill after 35 years.
    It's a big week for Ballard. First off, Thaiku and its bar Fu Kun Wu Lounge at 5410 Ballard Ave. are closing after ten years of business, due to an ongoing dispute with the property owner. In more upbeat news, Belle Clementine is now open at 5451 Leary Ave. N.W. in Ballard. More a "subscription" than a restaurant, it features family-style dinners that guests sign up for by the month/ season and pay for in advance. ?Also, a Southern-style establishment for 21 and over patrons called Sexton opens next week in the former Madame K's space at 5327 Ave. N.W., and an artisan brewery called Reuben's Brews is scheduled to debut next summer at 1406 N.W. 53rd St.

    In Belltown, Holy Cannoli is now open at 2720 3rd Ave. in Belltown. The shop specializes in fresh cannoli, stromboli, and other "Detroit-Italian" delicacies.

    On Capitol Hill, B&O Espresso at 204 Belmont Ave. E. is closing after three-plus decades of business. The neighborhood's first ever espresso house opened in 1976. Also in the neighborhood, a new establishment is taking over the former Chapel space at1600 Melrose Ave, come spring 2012. The Pine Box will feature 30 beers on tap and a full bar, as well as pizza and other beer-appropriate plates.

    In Madrona, the restaurant venue vacated by June at 1423 34th Ave. won't sit empty for long. Hanna Raskin reports that Tom Black and Kate Perry are aiming to open Restaurant Bea in the space by February.

    Lastly, in Tukwila, Starbucks launched a drive-through and walk-up only store this week at 10100 E. Marginal Way. What makes this establishment different than the countless others in the country however, is that it was built using four used shipping containers.
