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.
