Kemper Development Company announced that Cactus Restaurant will open soon in the space which Z’Tejas currently occupies, in Bellevue Square. Z’Tejas plans to close on January 31st, with Cactus Restaurant expected to open in June of this year.
Cactus serves Southwestern and Mexican cuisine . The restaurant currently has locations in Madison Park, Kirkland, South Lake Union, and Alki Beach. The 6,400 square feet Bellevue location will be designed as an urban Mexican neighborhood restaurant.
The owners, Bret and Marc Chatalas, who are brothers and grew up in Bellevue, are thrilled about their new acquisition, “We love what Bellevue has become and we were excited with the prospect of being part of the ongoing transformation,” says Marc Chatalas. “We always had our eye on Bellevue but did not want to take the leap until we found the right location and when we felt that Bellevue was ready for Cactus. When we learned the Z’Tejas location at The Bellevue Collection was available, we immediately saw the potential.”
