The Asian fusion restaurant Chili Baby at 2242 NW Market St has quietly shuttered their doors and is now for sale.
My Ballard reader Kathleen Drozdowski lives nearby and said she noticed that they haven’t been open for weeks, so she did some digging and found this commercial brokers listing.
According to the listing, the restaurant went on the market back in July, with a listing price of $225,000. Chili Baby has a current lease in that space through 2019 with five-year option; rent costs $4,106 per month.
You might remember the previous tenants in that space — Savour, the specialty food store and cafe, was open for about four years (closed in 2014). Before Savour, Best Regards cards and stationary shop was there for 16 years, until they closed in 2009.
No word yet from the owners about the closing — we’ll update if we get any new information.
