I just received the following email from a friend:

I was just talking to my co-worker, who was in Vancouver last weekend. She was thanking me for recommending Vij’s to her, and said that when they ate there last Friday night they had a little chat with Vij—who said he would be in Seattle this week


He’s partnering with the Wild Ginger dude, and they hope to be open sometime next year. Holy crap. I’m seriously trembling.

Anyone know the scoop? I, personally, would love to have a Vij’s in Seattle. Can you say lamb popsicles? Mmmm.

UPDATE: I just emailed Vij’s and Vikram sent a very nice reply saying that he’s coming to Seattle in September to look at spaces for a new Vij’s—and will decide after that trip. Keep your fingers crossed!
