A city short on dining options looks to be losing one, although it's expected to reopen. A sign has gone up announcing the closure of Cheers West, a bar and grill in University Place.
A manager who answered the phone said the restaurant would close June 1 and would reopen July 1 - in the same location - with new ownership. She said more details would be available Friday, but here's sign of the new ownership.
A liquor permit has just been placed for a restaurant called Cheers West U.P. The permit lists Ali Akbar Mehdizadehkashi as the applicant.
