Bellvue dinner rec for tomorrow night for Vancouverite

We will be staying at the Grand Hyatt tomorrow night and were looking for a dinner rec in Bellvue. We like Italian, French, Indian, Thai, and Pacific Northwest cuisine (seafood:). Not looking for anything particular just really good food. Prefer local/sustainable preparations but not a must. Thanks in advance.

  1. Vancouver, BC? Forget Indian, because you get much better in Vancouver. I suggest that you forget Bellevue and head on out to Kirkland. The best Italian there will be Cafe Juanita. It's on almost everyone's best list. Don't expect red sauce. Or for Pacific Northwest, try Trellis, The chef grows much of his own produce.

    1. Two immediate restaurants that come to mind in downtown Bellevue and a short walk from your hotel would be Monsoon East and Bis on Main. Enjoy your visit!

        Very disappointing lunch at Bis on Main recently - not sure if it was before or after the new chef. Had an interpretation of a salad nicoise that just didn't work.
