Lovitt Restaurant has landed in Bellingham.
The beloved Colville restaurant closed in June after 11 years in an iconic 1908 farmhouse overlooking the Colville Valley.
Proprietors Norman and Kristen Six relocated their slow-food, mom-and-pop restaurant to a larger market in hopes of getting some relief from their super-long work days and helping build their young daughters’ college funds.
It’ll take a few months before the new restaurant is ready to open. But renovation has already started at the new location, 1114 Harris Ave. in Bellingham. The space formerly held the Fairhaven Pub and Martini Bar.
This isn’t the first move for Lovitt, which started in Chicago’s hip Wicker Park neighborhood in 2002. Chef Norman Six, who grew up in Tiger, had wanted to return to the Pacific Northwest.
