Revelations Yogurt’s Main Street storefront looked busy this week as they prepare for opening day this month. Their Facebook page is teasing awaiting customers with rumors of an opening day announcement coming soon. In the meantime, they seem to be having fun designing flavor combinations (Luscious Lemon with raspberries sounds good to me!) and ideas for frozen yogurt (“froyo”) cakes with yogurt flavors including Red Velvet, Angel Food, Chocolate, Vanilla, Lemon, Dulce de Leche, and Peanut Butter.
Devin Duvall, the daughter of Revelation Yogurt’s Owner, will be adding “store manager” to her resume when the shop opens. Besides managing the yogurt shop, she is also busy maintaining her 3.9 GPA at Meadowdale High School, where she was recently recognized as Student of the Month.
Adding to great summer food options in Edmonds is the future site of Main Street Burgers, which plans to open in July. On their Twitter page, Main Street Burgers promises “burgers without all the fuss & without frying your wallet! Fresh toppings, fresh meat & on fresh baked buns from Edmonds Bakery.” My Edmonds News will bring more updates as they become available.
Il Buffone Closes
Edmonds lost a good eatery this week when Chef Michael Young quietly closed the doors of Il Buffone for good. The restaurant’s website has a goodbye message but no explanation. Just a few months ago, My Edmonds News reported on the restaurant’s transformation from Olives Cafe and Wine Bar to a simpler and more affordable Il Buffone, focusing on handmade pasta and wood fired pizza. Although the name and concept changed, the sign outside never did, but now that won’t matter. Seattle Times food writer Nancy Leason reported on the closure, citing financial reasons for the unfortunate turn.
Tasting the Art Walk
Besides the many shops that offer up cookies and little bites during the monthly Third Thursday ArtWalk event, there are a few places you can be sure to be fed. Arista Wine Cellars is joining the Artwalk with wine tasting, featuring wines from Clayhouse Vineyards in Paso Robles, Calif. The Resident Cheesemonger participates with cheese samplings. Epulo’s happy hour takes place during the first hour of the Artwalk and offers $8 specialty wood-fired pizzas among other great bites. The next ArtWalk is Thursday, June 16.
