Another business has applied for a liquor license at 5463 Leary Ave NW – the former location of Chai House and the short-lived Ballard’s Best BBQ.
The yellow application submitted by Paraty, Inc for a new restaurant called Paraty was posted on Saturday to sell spirits/beer/wine in a restaurant lounge setting.
Emily emailed us, “We were nosing around Ballard this afternoon and noticed there were some items for sale inside the building that used to house Ballard Best BBQ. We went inside–items for sale include plates, coffee cups, vases, etc.—and spoke with a man who says he’s applied for a liquor license for the space. He’s planning to open a restaurant that serves Brazilian seafood and has a bar. Hopes to open it in about a month.”
