I just heard that Chez Gaudy closed their doors and I am devastated! Nowhere in Seattle have I had more fun than on their Tuesday night tapas night and once upon a time they had the only vegetarian meatball in Seattle. Don't get me started on the decadent desserts and fun layout of the restaurant. Any word on what happened? I think the Chez deserves an obituary.

No details are available at the moment, but sorry to tell you, Jeff, it's true. I was never a huge fan of the food (especially of the vegetarian meatball), but Chez Gaudy was a good place to drink, and this is sad for Capitol Hill for sure. If it's any consolation, Bleu Bistro—same owners, similar (if smaller) squirrelly layout and decor—is still open.

...I think they also operate The Buck around the corner; great for drinks, and the pizza's not bad either.
