So long, Bricco; hello LloydMartin

Posted on September 26th, 2011 by Editor



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.

    So why did Bricco close? They seemed to be doing OK.

    I heard they live in Ballard and wanted to stay closer to their Ballard Ave restaurant Moshi Moshi.

    You know traffic is getting worse when you close your restaurant because of the commute from Ballard to Queen Anne

    Aw, that’s a shame. We ate there when we first moved here this summer and it was awesome.

    They closed because you couldn’t eat there without coming out smelling of food.
