At Bellevue Square on Bellevue Way next to PF Changs, where JZ Rose occupied the first floor, will now be filled with two restaurants that have a lot of contemporary energy and Asian cuisine.

The first is Blue C Sushi, which many might be familiar with, as they have locations in Fremont, University Village, and now Alderwood Mall. This is not your usual sushi joint. Blue C offers affordable sushi, with a conveyor belt style delivery method, big screen TV’s, and a nice atmosphere with a clean design.

The second restaurant is Boom Noodle, a fairly new establishment, which currently has one location in Capitol Hill. Although Boom has no conveyor belt, it holds many of the same initial values of Blue C Sushi, offering affordable, authentic dishes in a stylish and hip atmosphere. The only difference is that they serve noodles rather than Sushi! Take a peak instead of the Capitol Hill location, and you’ll immediately feel the environment of natural wood and green colors.

Both restaurants are locally owned by a group of three, which are “making our city’s culinary scene more interesting,” according to their Website. Blue C Sushi plans to open in September/October, followed by Boom Noodle in November/December. This fills a need for affordable, fun, and locally owned restaurant options to eat at, in and around the Bellevue Collection.
