Pike Street Fish Fry and Via Tribunali Coming to Ludlow

Posted on: August 9th, 2010 at 6:34 am by

In due course, two newly-vacant Ludlow Street storefronts will become side-by-side outposts of established Seattle eateries.  Both are situated in a resolution area, and are seeking beer and wine licenses at the upcoming Community Board 3 SLA meeting on August 16. Considering Ramen Kuidouraku across the street was just denied, this will definitely be an uphill battle.

Nevertheless, it’s time to meet Pike Street Fish Fry and Via Tribunali (pizza), a pair of sister restaurants hailing from the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle. The double-dose of northwest flavor will occupy 124 and 122 Ludlow respectively. Over the weekend, we called to find out more information about the venture, and were told that management hopes to have both locations up and running by November-ish.  Perhaps the Fish Fry should swap Pike with Ludlow.  Just a thought.

Until recently, the two storefronts were occupied by boutique shops. Both had the good fortune of relocating elsewhere in the neighborhood, though.  A. Turen packed up the gear and goods from 124 Ludlow and is now headed for more spacious digs at 85 Stanton; Ellen shuffled across the street to 123 Ludlow back in mid-April.

Meanwhile, the nightlife nightmare between Delancey and Rivington continues to worsen.  Of the dozen or so storefronts on this small spit of real estate, seven are eating/drinking establishments. Plenty of noise to go around, folks.
