Oaxacan Restaurant La Casa Azul Closes in Wallingford

It's only been in Wallingford for a year, but that was apparently enough for Isaac Jimenez. He opened his first Casa Azul in the Broadview-Bitter Lake stretch of Greenwood Avenue N. in honor of Frida Kahlo, the Mexican artist. The tiny blue house in the southern suburbs of Mexico City--today a much-frequented museum--is where Kahlo lived with her husband, artist Diego Rivera.

The Wallingford location, being on a busy, pedestrian-oriented street, was open for lunch as well as dinner, but didn't seem to catch on with the neighborhood. The Greenwood location (one of former Seattle Weekly restaurant reviewer Jonathan Kauffman's favorite finds) remains open.
