The Corner House, the Jefferson Park eatery founded by Seattle Fish Co. “school master” James Iacino and celebrated chef Matt Selby (Vesta Dipping Grill, Steuben’s, Ace), closed Saturday, according to a story in Westword.
Within less than a year of opening, Selby split from the neighborhood eatery for unclear reasons. Selby is now the top toque at Central Bistro in LoHi.
Restaurant consultant and marketing maven Leigh Sullivan, who handles the restaurant’s public relations, became a part-owner, but according to Westword, the investment was too little too late.
The space has been taken over by an unnamed “up-and-coming” chef, who will reopen with a new concept. Check out the whole story at www.blogs.westword.com/cafesociety/2014/06/corner_house_closes_in_jefferson_park.php.
