Update 1/25/2009: I’m relieved. The Kirkland Steak House is open though it is for sale. Thanks for the information, commenters. Blogs are a great multiway conversation.

GrannyJ reports that the iconic Kirkland Steak House is for sale (scroll to bottom of post). I sure hope it stays open. If anyone has info, please share.

I have some personal memories there. When Gary and I got married we had a dinner for our guests after the wedding. And on another occasion I made him a surprise party for his 50th birthday. He was very surprised when we walked in and a group of friends shouted “Happy birthday Gary!”. It is sad news the Kirkland Steak House might be closing.
