I live across the street and got the news when I went in for a coffee this morning.
Their last day is Sunday.

I loved Chico Madrid so much from the minute it opened—less than a year ago!—I went there every day for a week. Recently, some new partners joined Jacob Daly in running the sweet, chic, and all-around awesome little cafe and wine bar near Bellevue, Bellevue, and Bellevue on the west slope of Capitol Hill: Dani Cone (Fuel, High 5 Pie) and Kamala Saxton and Roz Edison (Marination). Chico Madrid's Facebook confirms:
Friends – with heavy hearts, we must tell you that Chico Madrid will be closing its doors this Sunday, April 13th. It has been a remarkable year full of devoted regulars, welcoming press and kind neighbors, however we just haven’t reached a sustainable level of business. But we LOVE Chico Madrid and we want all of you to have one last chance to enjoy our delicious food and warm spirit before we close. Please join us this week – we’d love to see you to say thank you.
