After five-plus years, Bricco owners Kevin and Tracy Erickson have closed the Italian-style restaurant atop Queen Anne hill.
The restaurant at 1525 Queen Anne Ave. N. is already being transformed by Seattle chef Sam Crannell into a new place called LloydMartin, which is named after his two grandparents. The new eatery will have 32 seats and is expected to open in October, according to a sign in the window. Crannell was the former chef at the short-lived Five Corner Market Bar and Kitchen in Ballard.
Crannell’s LloydMartin is touted as fine food at casual prices with comfort flavors, cutting edge techniques, premium ingredients and chef-to-guest interaction.
