The saga of Boom Noodle has officially come to an end on Capitol Hill, as the restaurant shuttered last Sunday.
There was a note on the door and on the website that reads:
We've been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the Capitol Hill and Seattle area for the past 10 years and it saddens us to announce that this weekend will be our last. Our lease is coming to an end and it's time to bid our wonderful guests and neighbors farewell.
We have had so much fun along the way while creating deep, lasting friendships within the community and building an amazingly loyal customer base. We hope you'll have a chance to stop by, say farewell and cheers! We cannot begin to express our gratitude for your patronage over the years. We at Boom look forward to serving you again somewhere and sometime in the future!
The Madison Holdings group, which also owns Blue C Sushi, opened the Japanese-inspired Boom Noodle at 12th and Pike in 2007. The group then tried out another concept, Kaisho, in the space in July 2014. Kaisho switched back to Boom Noodle in May 2015.
Madison Holdings has tried out its Kaisho and Boom Noodle concepts in Bellevue and University Village, too, but ultimately those ventures didn't work out either. Meanwhile, there are still a handful of Blue C Sushi locations in the Seattle area, including in Fremont, University Village, and downtown.
