Apparently The Counter in Ballard is closed – for good.
Report according to My Ballard: http://www.myballard.com/2012/03/16/the-counter-has-closed/
Luckily I was able to try The Counter once before it closed. I did a make-your-own burger and I must say that I enjoyed it. Sad to see a place like this closed, and wondering what the reason was. When I was there the place was packed and there was quite the wait to get a seat. That was also a weekend night, so maybe it did poorly during the week.
Hoping that something good comes in to fill its place.
