Credo Pizzeria has closed in the Junction after 11 years
Credo Pizzeria in the West Seattle junction closed on Saturday night Sept. 30.
The closure is a result of the loss of his lease with landlord Leon Capelouto.
Capelouto is a well known land owner in the area with numerous holdings in the Junction. The doors closed on Credo for the last time at 4520 California Ave. at 10pm.
"I've suffered for the last few months trying to run two businesses, Credo and my new pastry shop Panterelli Patisserie on Alaska Street," owner Jacques Nawar said.
"I've known for a few days I would have to close but I didn't want to announce it and have people rush in to say good bye, " he explained.
"I’d like to thank my many beloved customers for their patronage and friendship.
Please visit me at Panterelli just around the corner featuring truly French eclairs, choux a la crème and Illy Italian roast coffee."
Credo earned a national reputation earning top honors from Trip Advisor for six years in a row, coming through the pandemic healthy and still successful. Previously Nawar operated a successful restaurant Cafe Europa in Washington D.C.
For now Nawar said he will concentrate on Panterelli Patisserie at 4210 Alaska Street SW.
