Roy had a spot in Seattle at the Westin Hotel. The place closed down within a couple of years. I guess Roy was not destined to be a success in Seattle (but then again, neither was Wolfgang Puck...he opened up 2 restaurants here, both of which closed within a couple of years. Jeremiah Tower had a place called Stars in Pacific Place that went belly up, too). Seattle doesn't seem to be fertile ground for large corporate chain restaurants owned by big name chefs. But we do adore our local guys and have lots of great food.
