The Sri Lankan bar Rupee is inching closer to opening.
Manolin owners Joe Sundberg and Rachel Johnson 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.
