BIZNOTE: Pecado Bueno sets West Seattle Junction closing date

Two weeks ago, we reported that a restaurant/bar called Lady Jaye would be taking over the West Seattle Junction space that’s been home to Pecado Bueno for six years. Tonight, we have word of PB’s closing date. The company’s marketing director Tim Larson tells WSB that this Sunday, June 30th, will be the final day of operation at 4523 California SW. He adds, “No news yet on a new location. All our team there will be transferring to other locations.”

    What’s the story on the space that has had a sign for years that says “The Hydrant” in that same block of the Junction?

    Hopefully the new owners care more about the rats… After seeing a hige one wander around, and the staff saying “yeah, we tried getting rid of them, but they keep coming back”, I for sure never went back!

      Are you saying you saw a rat in the restaurant? Or out back near the alley?

      literally every restaurant in this city has rats and cockroaches, and if you think they don’t you’re deluded. if you boycotted every place with rodents and insects you’d starve to death. welcome to the world of living in a city and having food sources around.

    I live close to there on 44th. When I walk through the parking lot on either side of Alaska street, there’s always a good chance I will see one or two. I’m sure a rats nest is in the bushes near the drive-thru  Keybank. Seen a dead stiff one in the Wells Fargo drive-thru yesterday, and also noticed they’re coming out during daylight.

    Seattle is one of the rattiest cities in the US, credit the existence of Ports/Ships/Container. Rattus Norvegicus is an extremely cunning little fellah…probably will survive the apocalypse. I’ve seen them in the alleys both east and west of California, as well as one traipsing down California itself. They’re here, and restaurants generally have a tall order keeping them away. Heck My wife and I saw one IN THE ACTUAL DINING ROOM at Metroploitan Grill downtown.

    Went to PB a couple times over the years. Food was fine but service was not.

    Dang! My boyfriend (now husband) loved the place when I lived in West Seattle. :(

    As for the rats, you can thank most of the new construction going on around here. Same thing happens in forests and jungles. New development forces critters out of their homes and into our areas. Restaurants always attract roaches and rats. Open your eyes. And I happen to personally know they did everything they could to combat the issue.The food there was amazing and my family loves this place. This is very sad indeed.Service has been hit or miss over the last few years, but recently it was under new management and everything was AMAZING! The guy managing has been there for years and we just love him. He really turned the place around. We’re gonna miss the staff and going there every weekend.It’s an end of an era. Great food, great drinks, fun restaurant and staff…and that patio!!!!We wish them all well. I heard someone say something about them going to their Eastlake location. I’ll definitely be going there to see my guys.Thanks for every, Pecado. We love you.

    I went there yesterday, the last day. Not all that crowded despite the Farmers Market going fuu steam outside, I will miss the tortas, good cheap margaritas, and the casual atmosphere. Farewekk. Pecado Bueno.

    Good riddance.  Hopefully the new owners will know how to treat customers, and serve higher quality food.

Sorry, comment time is over.
