Bernu’s is kaput, German cuisine to replace?

There’s no paper on the windows yet, but Bernu’s Indian Restaurant (2122 NE 65th St) has closed. An online real estate listing shows that the restaurant was purchased back on July 14th.


So, what’s going into this space next? A slightly more occidental cuisine, it appears.


Here are a few factoids I have found out about this new place (through internet sleuthery):

  • “Heidelberg Haus” will be opening in early fall (sayeth the signage pictured above).
  • According to the Washington State Liquor Control Board temporary pre-approval permit also posted on the door, they will be serving beer and wine.
  • The corporation listed on the liquor application (an LLC) appears to be owned by a couple in or from Einhausen, Germany.

Just bits and pieces, so far. I’ll continue to keep an eye out for more info. And should you, gentle reader, learn anything in the meantime, share it with the rest of the neighborhood in the comments below, or email me (

Danke und guts Glück!
