Did you recently move to the Bellevue area?

Let us be the first to say welcome! We know it can be overwhelming when you move to a new city: choosing a new dentist and orthodontist, finding your go-to grocery store, even deciding which dry cleaners to use – the decisions might seem endless!

As long-time residents of Bellevue and the Eastside, we’re proud to call it home – and we’re confident you’re going to feel right at home here too! Here are a few of our team’s favorite local services, restaurants, and activities:

Some of our favorite Eastside restaurants & beverages:

El Gaucho is our favorite steakhouse. It’s perfect for special occasions and important business dinner meetings because of its consistently top-notch service, superb steaks, and extensive wine list. Be sure to finish off the meal with a tableside bananas Foster! They also have a fantastic happy hour menu. (425) 455-2715  450 108th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98004

Pagliacci Pizza—of course, it just goes without saying that you need to have a go-to pizza place, and this one is fantastic! (425) 453-1717  15238 Bel-Red Rd, Bellevue, WA 98007

Malt and Vine: this is actually in Redmond, but worth the short drive. They feature rotating taps of beers and ales from around the world, including a cask and nitro pour. There are hundreds and hundreds of bottled beers, wine, and ciders. They do not serve food, but you can order from surrounding restaurants and they’ll bring it to your table. When the weather is nice, you can enjoy their outdoor patio. (425) 881-6461  16851 Redmond Way, Redmond, WA 98052
