It is with a heavy heart that we announce Pintxo and Branchwater are closed as of Today, March 11th.
The COVID-19 crisis has drained our resources and we can no longer keep our doors open.
It all comes down to the amount of customers that come through the door. We feel love and supported by all of you however with the COVID-19 crisis our customer base has evaporated. Like many other restaurants in Seattle we rely on the predictability of our customer base. There is no light at the end of the tunnel — with our business down by 75%, tourism looking bleak for the summer, possible mandatory quarantine — closing our doors is the only, but heartbreaking option.
To our beloved guests:
We are going to miss this life with you! Serving each of you, sharing in your milestone and every-day moments, watching your families grow and change, hearing the stories of your travels. You have been the lifeblood of our day-to-day.
We have loved creating a space where you can enjoy food, celebrate, nourish and indulge. We loved sharing our love of Spain, Spanish food + wine, cocktails and hospitality with you all. Your enjoyment was our drive. We are so thankful for you. It’s been an incredible pleasure serving each of you over the past 10 years.
To our incredible staff:
You are our heroes. Your dedication to our small by mighty dream is not lost on us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are an inspiration to work with. We have learned so much from you.
The next couple years will likely be much harder than the last 10 as we move on from one of the happiest and hardest decade of our lives.
With Love and Gratitude,
Cory, Amanda, Frances and Evelyn Chigbrow
