Capitol Hill Mexican Sandwich Favorite to Close This Month

Get your final fix of Tortas Condesa

Chef Monica Dimas’ empire is set to shrink a little bit, as she has announced the impending closure of her sandwich spot Tortas Condesa.

Capitol Hill Seattle broke the news, which was also announced on the restaurant’s social media channels.

Dimas opened the East Olive Way counter a little over three years ago, offering the eponymous Mexico City-style sandwiches loaded up with mole, chorizo, pulled pork, and other fillings.

While Condesa is set to close at the end of February, there will still be plenty of Dimas’ fare to go around: she has since added other eateries in Capitol Hill and beyond, such as the ultra-popular Westman’s Bagel & Coffee, and then taqueria Little Neon Taco, a spin-off of her similarly-named taco counter inside bar Nacho Borracho.

Thanks everyone who has supported us over the last 3+ years of torta goodness! We will be closing at the end of February...

The post on Facebook and Instagram notes that Condesa’s lease is expiring, and Dimas clarified to Eater that she voluntarily let the lease end in order to focus on other projects, but some tortas will live on at Dimas’ Little Neon Taco on First Hill.

The final day of service is set for February 25.
