Via Tribunali Boasts New Brick Oven

Posted on: February 28th, 2011 at 6:39 am by

For much of December, two of three “Little Seattle” properties on Ludlow Street became makeshift art galleries.  The future Caffe Vita at 124 Ludlow housed a show called HELP IS ON THE WAY, while the adjacent storefront became a pop-up affair for graffiti artist Jesse Edwards.  His exhibition remained intact pretty much through the end of 2010.  Then a fatal fire consumed a second floor apartment there, killing a 65-year-old woman who was trying to keep warm by her stove. Weeks of silence ensued.

Once early February arrived, though, we began to notice some limited movement on premises.  Doors opening, walkabouts, finger-pointing, and such.  Of the three properties, it now appears Via Tribunali at 122 Ludlow is the first out of the gate, so to speak.  The other day, the yellowed leaves of dictionary paper were curled back from the windows, revealing a new red-tiled brick oven in the corner of the room.

Meanwhile, Pike Street Fish Fry is scheduled for another appearance before Community Board 3 on March 14.  The restaurant will make its second argument for a wine and beer license, after being shot down last September for residing in a resolution area.
