Born as a crêperie in 1997, 611 Supreme had grown along with Pike/Pine into a full-fledged restaurant and lounge. It celebrated its 18th year of business this January. Friday, owner Margaret Edwins announced this weekend will be Supreme’s last serving Capitol Hill:
Facebook Friends, 611 Supreme is closing after 18 and change years, who’s counting anyways. I want to express my deepest gratitude to all the incredible patrons and most importantly to all the staff that have walked through these doors. We will be open tonight regular hours and tomorrow from noon until supplies last. Again, thank you for the support over all of these years!!
Born well before CHS started and already well established in the community, 611 Supreme is the kind of Capitol Hill entity that will leave us full of regret — we wish we’d found a reason to write about the charming bee-themed venue prior to bringing you its obituary.
There are no permits on file with the city for 611 Supreme’s building neighboring R Place that indicate any major changes are underway. The R Place building and the 611 building have different owners according to King County property records. Meanwhile, construction on a seven-story apartment and mixed-use building is underway next to 611 Supreme at the site of the former Mercedes dealership. We’re checking in with Edwins to learn more about the decision to shutter her 611 E Pine business.
