Chow Coco Au Revoir
posted by March 1 at 10:13 AMon
Esteemed local pastry chef Sue McCown has abruptly called it quits on Coco La Ti Da, the “dessert restaurant and lounge” she opened at 806 East Roy St (across from the Harvard Exit) last November.
As McCown tells the Seattle Times, the whole Coco La Ti Da endeavour was under the gun from the start. “I started the business undercapitalized,” says McCown, who admits “mistake [were] made.” (Some would say the name was the first one, being more suitable to a drag queen one would run from than a dessert bar one would visit.)
Here’s Stranger writer Angela Garbes’ welcome-to-the-neighborhood column on the now-defunct dessertery.
RIP Coco La Ti Da.
