Old & New #7? What??

The Spaghetti Factory was like a institution in Seattle. It closed down a couple of years ago even though it was a very popular place. There is restaurant in Lynnwood that is also popular but the Seattle site is now empty. There is this wonderful brick building sitting amongst the new glass building and other tall structures.

    So sad! I think I went there back in high school, but I don’t remember now for sure. Nice that the city traded it in for a bike lane across the floating bridge though. A definite step up.

      Yes Scott, many of us feel sad. I did not go there often as I do not live in downtown Seattle, but it was such a Seattle icon, and was there when I wanted it ;’-)

    It looks just like the Old Spaghetti Factory in Minneapolis. It’s still open, and now I’m feeling like I better get back there before it shuts down for good.

      I don’t think there is a plan to shut down Spaghetti Factories. I think maybe the Seattle site got eaten up by the city’s growth and space availability — like for parking maybe. All speculation on my part, but there is still one in the Seattle area — in Lynnwood — and around Portland Oregon.

    We still have one in downtown Louisville, KY. I haven’t been there in many years.

    >>>Goes to Bing Spaghetti Factory — downtown here hasn’t been the same since L&M lunch counter closed 😉
    Nice photo!

    Edit: Whew! There aren’t any in Illinois. I was going to check to see just how thick the moss is over the rock I live under!

      So Spaghetti Factory is a restaurant chain, and I thought it was a factory that made spaghetti, excuse my antipodean ignorance.
