so long pike’s bar & grill

November 13, 2008

dscn8777i, pumpkin, was wrong.

back in april, i forecasted spinasse to destitution. but it looks like pike’s bar & grill wins the race and has closed up shop…already.

apparently the excellent digs of the former 1200 bistro – which closed unexpectedly in late 2007 – seems to prove it’s not all about location, location, location…as pb&g was amid real estate gold on pike/12th and didn’t clear six months of business.

while certain yelp reviews raved excellent service and cuisine, i couldn’t grasp what exactly pb&g was shooting for. was it a bar? was it a restaurant?

gross lighting and steep prices (by hill standards) left distaste with us, as cupcake noted in here we go again.

what would you like on pike/12th?

    kudos on the attempt. there has been very little coverage of this, anyone know the last day they were open?

    I also thought their name (bar and grill) didn’t match the menu or the atmosphere or the prices. When I think of bar and grill, I think of the Six Arms menu… sandwiches and burgers.
