The Sri Lankan bar Rupee is inching closer to opening.
Manolin owners Joe Sundberg, Rachel Johnson and Patrick Thalasinos* are behind the new bar, going in at 6307 24th Ave NW. Sundberg told the Seattle Met that the menu will be reminiscent of southern Indian food: “Spicy, coconut heavy, and lots of seafood.”
Rupee posted the above photo of their nearly finished interior yesterday on Instagram: “We are getting closer over here,” they write.
They were aiming for a June opening, so stay tuned. We’ll update when we learn more.
*Correction: The original story mistakenly left out Patrick Thalasinos as one of the co-owners.
