The Leary Traveler (4354 Leary Way NW) will be closing soon — its last day will be Tuesday, Oct. 30.
General manager Leeanne Burk says she saw it coming after the owners closed their other restaurant/bar in Queen Anne, The Great Nabob.
“Things just didn’t work out,” Burk told My Ballard. “When Nabob closed in July, I figured this one wasn’t too much further behind,” she said. “I guess that’s just the dynamics of the restaurant industry — the owners just want to move on.”
The Leary Traveler opened in Frelard 10 years ago. The owners were leasing the restaurant, so we’ll update when we know who moves in to the vacated space.
