Sutra's coming

As you can see, something is afoot on the 1600 block of 45th.

This former site of upscale restaurants Asteroid Café (which relocated to Fremont in 2006) and Bottle Rocket Café is noticeably lacking its rooftop iconic asteroid. (Was there ever an iconic bottle rocket?)

The interior is definitely undergoing renovations.

A sign in the window indicates that this will be the home of Sutra, a new restaurant brought to you in part by the owners of Rain City Yoga (in the U District).

I ran into one of the owners yesterday in Fuel, and he told me they hope to open in July. The all-vegetarian menu will change daily and make use of what's available at the local farmers' markets. There will be two seatings a night, and the presentation will be "elegant". Sounds like it will probably be pricey, too.
