The more than 30-year-old Philadelphia Fevre has shuttered in the Central District, reports CHS. The Madison St. restaurant was founded by Renee LeFevre in 1983; it's unclear whether a second location in Renton remains in business.
With Philadelphia Fevre's closure, Seattle is down to a measly four cheesteakeries. Cheesesteak eaters can still bust their guts at a few other restaurants, albeit with less history: Tat's in Pioneer Square (and on wheels,) The Original Philly's in Beacon Hill, Calozzi's downtown and in Georgetown, and Philly Boys in the I.D. Did we miss anyone? More importantly, can someone please open a new cheesesteak shop?
