Tigerly Ox, the Vietnamese eatery nestled in next to Julia’s on Wallingford Ave, will be closing their doors for good this Wednesday, February 15th. They posted to their Facebook page:
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you we must close our Tigerly Ox – Wallingford location, due to complicated issues with re-negotiating our lease.
Thank you, Wallingford, for your loyalty to this location. We would love for you to visit us at our Tigerly Ox – East Madison location at 2207 E. Madison Street! We are also looking to expand our Seattle locations into South Lake Union and Downtown in the future.
Our last day in Wallingford will be Wednesday, February 15th from 11:30am to 8:00pm. Thank you, again, and we hope to see you soon!
The news came suddenly: at least one employee heard the news from a customer. From what I understand, there was a disagreement between owner John Tran and Julia Miller, who owns the building, that they couldn’t resolve. (Yes, that’s the same Julia as in “Julia’s”, except she sold the restaurant business to an employee back in the early ’90s. Not the building, though.)
So, head on over to get your last taste of bánh mì, cơm and xà lách while you can! And good luck to whatever business comes next. There have been a series of short-lived endeavors in that space, let’s hope the next one breaks the curse.
