Nancy Leson has the story—or what little of the story is known so far. We've got a call in to Brasa chef/owner Tamara Murphy to give condolences and ask for details.

Meanwhile: Will any spendy restaurants survive in Belltown?

First Mistral closed, moved to Westlake, and reopened as the reformatted Mistral Kitchen.

Then Lampreia shut down, remodeled, and reopened as small-plates bar Bisato—read a review of the extreme deliciousness here.

Flying Fish closed and is moving to the Westlakey/South Lake Uniony area near the Whole Foods on Denny.

Now (reportedly), after more than a decade, Brasa. RIP.
