Paseo 2.0: Our sandwich correspondent’s hot take

It’s baaaaaack. (Photo by Jeff Albertson) By Jeff Albertson Special to The Seattle Times I knew something was happening when I smelled the familiar aroma of grilled onions on my morning bike commute coming down Fremont Ave. on Thursday morning. I’ve lived in upper Fremont for nearly eight years now and have woken up to that smell almost…

No one had a chance to go to Paseo one last time—that’s what has made Seattle’s great sandwich trauma of 2014 so traumatic. Last week’s overnight shutdown, followed by Paseo’s declaration of bankruptcy, meant that nobody got to say goodbye, using even more napkins than usual to soak up their tears along with the mess from their very last bites of Paseo pork. (It might’ve been construed as a sign of trouble, but last month’s lawsuit in which some former employees alleged they hadn’t been paid overtime or allowed breaks — allegations Paseo denied — went unnoticed.)

With labor suit pending, Paseo’s mystery closure hard for fans to stomach

Ellen M. Banner / The Seattle Times Some folks will really miss Paseo’s famed sandwiches. Matthew Crane lights a candle and leaves a flower Tuesday in front of the shuttered Paseo’s restaurant in Fremont (the Ballard shop closed, too), under a sign saying it closed due to “unfortunate circumstances.”

Jaws drop all the time outside the Fremont and Ballard locations of Paseo, ready to take big, sloppy bites out of some of Seattle’s best and most beloved sandwiches.

On Tuesday, customers’ jaws could only drop at the sight of a sign taped to the window of Paseo in Fremont: “Due to unfortunate circumstances, we are closing our doors,” the sign read. “We appreciate all the support and loyalty you have shown us over the years. We will miss you.”

Bisotted: by butternut squash soup at Bisato, in Belltown. [Seattle Times/John Lok.]

Soup: It’s what’s for dinner. And lunch. And, if you’re me, breakfast. Especially in January. As much as I love to take to the stove and soup-er-size-it, I’m always on the lookout for a restaurant fix. Recently, I asked my Eatership to point me toward their soup-spot favorites and — thanks, guys! — they offered a wide world of ideas, directing me to hole-in-the-wall places, as well as haute haunts. With a nod to their lineup, I’ve added a soupçon of seafood-scented suggestions:
