Alki Homestead fire aftermath: Prospective buyer “still interested”

That’s per Rebekah Denn in Devouring Seattle at – she mentioned this morning that chef Johnny Zhu had just taken a new job as executive chef at Monsoon East in Bellevue, and also noted our earlier report that he was believed to be the prospective buyer of the Alki Homestead. She updated at mid-afternoon after talking with him, writing: “He and Rose are indeed still interested in Alki Homestead, but the fire there has set their timeline back. They’re pursuing it — and looking for investors, btw — but it’s not a done deal.” (As we reported 1/19, owner Tom Lin believes it’ll take at least six months to fix and reopen the Homestead.)

    I don’t have enough to formally invest in the business, but I would like to send what I can toward restoring this awesome place. Would the new owners be interested in such a thing, if a bunch of WSB-ers got it together?

Sorry, comment time is over.
