Cafe Pettirosso Add to a List
First Cafe Presse Add to a List , now this: The longtime Capitol Hill gem Cafe Pettirosso, owned by sisters Miki and Yuki Sodos, is shutting down permanently on February 6 after 27 years of business. An announcement from the business read, "We would have stayed forever but are exhausted and frustrated on all fronts. We stayed open every day during the pandemic, the protests, snow storms, years of construction, and gentrification, but it is now our time. The thought of having to keep fighting through Covid only to go straight into having to pay for yet another build-out of Café Pettirosso after the building is slated to be gutted in the near future, and then straight into a massive raise in the rent, is too much."

Peddler Brewing Company Add to a List
