Silence Heart Nest closes permanently

One of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in Seattle has just shuttered their doors—this time, for good.

Silence Heart Nest was opened by devotees of Bangladeshi guru Sri Chinmoy in 1986 in the U-District. The owners moved it to Fremont in 2005, and closed for a short time in August last year when they put it up for sale. In a fortunate turn of events just one month later, the owners’ son Bishwas Polissar announced he’d be taking over.

However, in late August, an announcement was posted on Silence Heart Nest’s Facebook page saying the restaurant is once again for sale.

“We are sad to announce that Silence-Heart-Nest is permanently closed. Many thanks to all our friends and patrons for 34 beautiful years,” the post reads.

Payback for burn, loot, mayhem maybe? Payback for 1 of the worst run cities in America maybe? Payback for high taxes, massive regulations and people that don’t really want to work maybe? Am I not supposed to notice, or say a word?

Various factually tenuous statements. Hyperbole. Fomenting against Democrats. Something something something. Homeless this and that. And that other thing.

Owning a boat brings 2 great days; the day you buy it AND the day you sell it. Perhaps this eatery became their boat? Perhaps it’s the happiest day of their lives?

No doubt these people are “good democrats”. Would they say it if closing was about unfunded mandates foisted upon them by government? The true issues of running a business in Seattle perhaps? The obvious answer would be C-19 but, that’s been somewhat handled. People are fleeing this area. Manners + hubris may keep the truth from outing itself though.

The place was a bit weird, but the food was good—especially the eggs benedict and the waffles.

Three words, and the keys to success: chicken wings & football.
