Respected, locally focused catering company Herban Feast closed its West Seattle restaurant, Fresh Bistro (4725 42nd Ave. SW), last weekend after nine years in the busy Junction neighborhood. Though proprietor BJ Duff confirmed the news with the West Seattle Blog, he did not specifically say why he chose to close, saying that there were multiple reasons. So far, Fresh Bistro hasn’t even announced the closure on Facebook, Twitter, or its website.
Like Herban Feast, Fresh Bistro focused on local ingredients for its menu of global comfort food. Seasonal items included Goose Point oysters on the half shell, lobster bisque, Carleton Farms pork belly, seared ling cod, and chocolate ganache cake.
The West Seattle Blog also noted that there’s no word on what’s next for the restaurant space, located in the Mural building on 42nd Ave. SW across from Jefferson Square and next to Eater Award-winning cocktail bar Alchemy.
