News you can eat: The Nov. 21 week in food

by Bethany Jean Clement Seattle Times Food Writer SPAGHETTI WESTERN is open on Capitol Hill, serving barbecue and, yes, spaghetti. Spaghetti Western is chef/owner Aleks Dimitrijevic’s revamp of his La Bête; he says it’s “a lot more fun,” and it’s definitely more down-home, with Western knickknacks, tin trays, and Sergio Leone–style movies playing on screens above the…

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.)

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.”
