The Shutter

Another day, another sad shutter: This time it's 16-year-old Phinney Ridge restaurant Stumbling Goat Bistro, which announced on Facebook a closing date of Saturday, August 27. A four-story mixed-use development called Phinney Flats would eventually demolish the building that houses the bistro and longstanding dive bar Ed's Kort Haus, but it's still in the review phase and the developers told PhinneyWood blog last year they were excited to have the existing businesses return in new spaces. It's not immediately clear why Stumbling Goat is closing already, though owner Angie Heyer hinted at future plans via email: "We've been working on our next adventure, and this is the right time to take the next step."

Temporary Shutter

Courtesy of a concerned tipster, Japanese-Korean restaurant Shilla posted this sign on its door last month: "Dear customers. We will be closed for our annual maintenance until further notice. Thank you so much." Sites like Yelp and Foursquare have declared the Denny Triangle establishment closed, but calls to the restaurant have gone unanswered, so there's no official confirmation of anything more than a temporary shutter at the moment.

Stop by Capitol Hill's Restaurant Marron, visit its website, call its phone number and you'll be told that the business has "moved" and more details can be found on Facebook and Instagram. Check said social media pages, though, and you'll be stymied; there've been no updates in months, and there's no info whatsoever on a new location. Requests for comment haven't been answered. In their Instagram profiles, though, co-owners Zarina Sakai and her chef-husband Eric Sakai both mention an upcoming venture called Alba's Genuine, which has its own profile with a logo touting "authentic quality foods," but no posts yet. Reach out if you can help clear up the mysteries. [EaterWire]
