Munchbar Opens in Bellevue
Last spring Caesars Palace in Vegas welcomed munchbar, a high-energy nosh joint with artisanal comfort foods and tasty lubricants. This Friday night the thing roars into Bellevue Square: 6,300 square feet of pure, high-concept dining, drinking, and, um…“service with a twinge of sass.”
Well the dining and drinking should be fun.
Seis Kamimura, late of BOKA, heads up a kitchen big on massive-flavor comfort foods: pizzadillas (pepperoni, creamy tomato cheese sauce, and basil in a flour tortilla); burgers (including a turkey burger with fennel-mushroom stuffing, cranberries and herb mayo; and a short rib patty melt on rye) with hand-cut fries; Kobe beef chili with spicy jalapeno cornbread; grilled tuna with roasted fingerling potatoes, spinach, and lemon vinaigrette; and more. Including finales like butterscotch pudding with snickerdoodles.
All within a space all livened up by the graffiti of artist Jordan Nickel. Guests can add to the decor by making their own mark on the big wall-sized blackboards. Kinetic music and sports events will fill the airwaves til 10pm, at which point DJs transform the place into a “fresh and funky ultra lounge.”
Your kind of place? Find out this Friday night, January 28, starting at 8pm.
