What's New in Downtown Bellevue?

Wow - we turned our back for a few moments for the snowstorm and Thanksgiving, and look at all the new stores and restaurants that opened in Downtown Bellevue while we weren't looking!

Microsoft Store, Bellevue Square -- Ok, we heard about this one, but you would have to be under a rock to miss it. Grand opening events included a Miley Cyrus show, a Dave Matthews show and an appearance by Apolo Ohno. Why such a big deal? Because while this isn't the first Microsoft Store in the country, it's the first one in their hometown.

Din Tai Fung, Lincoln Square - Into dumplings? This new upscale Taiwanese dumpling restaurant just opened this weekend. Aside from Los Angeles, they have 21 locations across Asia. It's funny to read the Yelp reviews complaining about a three-hour wait and terrible service when they visited on opening day, which happened to be Black Friday at the mall. Uh, really?

Bill the Butcher, Main Street - This one opened in late September, but it's worth a mention and worth a try because this new neighbor is just down the block from One Main Street, and it's a real, old fashioned, locally owned butcher shop.

Buns on Wheels, Food Truck - Finally a food truck that's Eastside-focused! This truck serves up all natural burgers with locally sourced ingredients. They make a stop at the Downtown Bellevue Barnes & Noble every Tuesday at lunchtime. Check their website for more Eastside locations.

Via Vita Cafe and Wine Bar, Belcarra Building - Coffee, pastries, gelato, wine. What more could you need in life? Really, it sounds like the ideal place to get away from the mall during the holiday madness. Cheers to that!

Uwajimaya moving to bigger (closer) store in Bellevue

The Daily Journal of Commerce is reporting today that Uwajimaya will move it's east Bellevue store next spring to a larger location closer to Downtown Bellevue, in the shopping center that was formerly occupied by Larry's Market. This popular Asian grocery store and market will have 35,000 square feet in the new space (compared to 23,000 square feet in the current space). That space is about half of the former Larry's Market space.

That also puts them a lot closer for shopping from One Main Street, giving homeowners another great option for fresh meats and produce and unique products that only Uwajimaya carries. We say, welcome to the neighborhood!
