West Seattle restaurants: Ex-Café Revo to become Avalon

That was fast. Tonight the WSB inbox yielded news of activity at the former Café Revo, which is apparently going to become a “Mediterranean-influenced” restaurant called Avalon. There’s no business license or liquor-license application in that name yet, but we did find social-media accounts for its apparent owners, mentioning the purchase and hopes of opening next month. We have messages out to see what more they can tell us.

    Thank you so much to the West Seattle community for all your support and help during this difficult time. I just wanted to clarify that the buyer we had for Cafe Revo backed out last minute and I had to abandon the space and everything in it leaving it to the bank. This was not what our plan was ever. We thought we would be transferring ownership, saving our staffs jobs and have time to let our guests know about the change. We are very saddened that it did not work that way. We wish the new restaurant all the best. We put so much love into building Cafe Revo, we hope the new business does well and enjoys the space. Sincerely Sofia Zadra Goff of Cafe Revo

    I had the pleasure of dining at Cafe Revo twice and was introduced to it by Chuck Pefley. I am sorry for the circumstances around your closing and that it follows so closely on the heals of the passing of your husband and business partner over a year ago. There are many in the community that are wishing you and your staff all the best. Thank you for a great place to dine. Yours was a wonderful, wonderful business.

    Sofia Goff,
    When is the next fundraiser? The one with live music and silent auction? I can’t wait to attend!

    Baba, sometimes the more mature action is to just not comment at all.
    Everyone knows what your opinion is on this subject.

    Ciao Baba. Thanks for asking about the benefit. You can see all of the details about it at the Cafe Revo website: http://www.caferevo.com It will be at Kenyon Hall on Tuesday November 23. We are hoping a lot of our Revo guests can come so we can get a chance to say good-bye and thank all of you for coming to Revo while we were open. We will also be having a silent auction and raffle of items from Cafe Revo. Hope to see you there! Thanks everyone for your kind words and all your support. It really touches our hearts. Sincerely, Sofia

Sorry, comment time is over.
