It's no secret that Seattle's once thriving food scene has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ordered to cease in-person dining in March, many restaurants made the pivot to takeout food, while others found innovative ways to keep the doors open, creating cocktail and meal kits to go. But not every institution has survived the economic lull brought on by the shutdown, lack of tourism in the city and population of workers telecommuting.

And with a fall surge of the virus and new restrictions on indoor dining, the city's struggling restaurant industry may see more closures before the end of the virus.

Here, we say goodbye to some of the city's beloved restaurants that have permanently closed due to the pandemic, and remember all the happy times spent together over their drinks and dishes.
