Qube closes today

Posted by Nancy Leson

Qube closes shop today at Second and Stewart, unfortunately proving that a number multiplied by itself three times -- add lukewarm reviews and a downturn in the economy -- may add up to zero. This info just in, hot off the press-release:

"Owners Fu-Shen Chang and Kerry Huang are sad to announce the closure of Qube. The last day of operation is today, July 3, 2008. Qube opened in December of 2006. `We've really enjoyed the challenge of having our own restaurant and seeing the pleasure people have had from tasting the seasonal menus,' says Fu-Shen. Qube brought something new to Seattle, a sophisticated, urban look and feel with matching modern food. Guests loved the Qube Sets and innovative a la carte plates. Qube was also known for its cocktails using infused alcohol, herbs and fruit. With the economic downturn, people have reduced their fine dining budget and Qube has felt the impact."

Anybody want to buy a restaurant? Realtor Laura Miller (206-726-3451) is handling the sale, according to the release.
