As Gordon Ramsay Helps One Place, Another Downtown Everett Restaurant Closes

December 5, 2012

Downtown Everett, Everett Economy

Closed

Stuff What I Like is now closed

The owners of Stuff What I Like on Colby Avenue have closed the doors. Earlier this afternoon on their Facebook and Twitter pages they posted the following message…Thanks Everett! We loved serving you the best exotics and burgers around.

After some more pleas for information the owners added… Sorry fans, it is true… We loved serving you but can’t outlast these bad economic times… We are closed for good.

We first wrote about Stuff What I Like after they opened back in October of 2011. Sean Lloyd was a former techie who had an interest in bringing game meat to the masses while his wife Cynthia is an artist and middle school teacher. They gave it a good try but apparently have found downtown Everett a very tough place to make a go of their establishment.

It will be interesting to see what Gordon Ramsay and the Fox television show Kitchen Nightmares can do for the Prohibition Grille. They started filming the show there yesterday and will be in town for the week. The premise of Kitchen Nightmares is Ramsay comes into a restaurant that is struggling and works with the owners to turn things around. It usually involves changes to the menu and redecorating the restaurant.

Other recent comings and goings among restaurants in downtown Everett include Chopstix on Oakes near Comcast Arena going out of business and being replaced this week by The Austin and Crusty Tasty Bakery going out on Colby and being replaced by Bite Me Cupcakes. Earlier this year PAVE Bakery was replaced by Petite Sweet Bakery in the 2600 block of Colby.

    Oh sure, blame it on the economy.
    Been shopping lately ? The malls are busy, Costco is busy, most places are busy.
    Unemployment is down, the stock market is up.
    Maybe they ought to take some personal responsibility, and admit that their business model was flawed in some way.

    The City doesn’t do near enough to drive foot trsffic in Everett. So many great businesses go under. This city has so much potential, but cintinues to die a slow dwath year by year. How sad.
