Edmonds, Wa questions

ritabwh Mar 1, 2011 03:50 PM

it's been a few months since i've been to downtown Edmonds.

Bill the Butcher is still "coming soon"
---does anyone know why it's taking such a long time?

Olives Cafe windows were covered up.
---are they closed?

finally...how is the Indian restaurant that is in the old Skipper's building?

    Olives closed on Feb. 26th and will re-open on March 3rd as "Il Buffone." Chef Michael Young will be featuring wood-fired pizza and hand-cut pasta.

    No word on Bill the Butcher's delays. I know he's also opening another new store in Ballard.

    Haven't tried the new Indian place yet, but please report back if you do!

      Bill is no longer part of B the Butcher - I think since last fall. There may be some delays in the expansion. Kind of a interesting (?) story. Stops short of the troubles with Bill.
