Belltown's Mama's Mexican Kitchen will close this fall, reports The Seattle Times. The building holding Seattle's oldest Mexican restaurant was sold in March to a Chinese development firm and will be torn down to make way for an eight-story, 60-unit mixed-use development.
Mama's was somehow both beloved for its kitsch and history, and disliked for its food. The 41-year-old fixture has seen customers like Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Eddie Vedder, and Nick Offerman walk through its doors. There's no word yet on an exact closing date.
