A couple of quick notes of restaurant changes on Bellingham’s Samish Way:
- Arby’s has closed its restaurant 117 N. Samish Way. The building has a “closed permanently” sign and directs customers to go to its other restaurant at 4390 Meridian St.
- On Friday, Jan. 20, El Albanil Mexican Food opened at 3619 Byron St. (in the former IHOP building near the Samish intersection). The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day. Manager Rafael Alvarado said they plan on focusing on affordable, quick dining. Prices range from $5.75 to $6.95 for lunch. Details can be found at this (link).
Last week’s snow/ice storms put me behind in physically looking for business openings and closures, so if you’ve spotted any recently, put a post here or send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll check them out. Thanks!
