After the glowing reviews, the change of ownership, the lawsuit, and the "Spring Cleaning Party as imagined by Federico Fellini" (more here), it's officially the end for Madrona French restaurant Cremant.

The sign says:

Dear Friends,

We are sorry to announce that Cremant is no more. While most good things do eventually come to an end, please understand that the closing of our doors is also an opening of opportunity for the next venture to inhabit this very special place.

So thank you for your patronage and stay tuned.


New owner Mike McConnell has yet to return a call for comment. He also owns Caffe Vita and Via Tribunali—maybe Madrona's about to get one of those.
