If you frequent Canada then you may be familiar with Earl’s, a trendy restaurant and bar. Recently there have been several rumors floating around town about Earl’s pondering an opportunity to take occupancy at Lincoln Square.

There are several unoccupied locations at Lincoln Square. The most attractive being on the second floor next to Lucky Strike Lanes and on the street level where Fashion Axis has been, located next to the Container Store.

Those familiar with Earl’s would agree that it is a lot like Joey’s at Bellevue Place. Ironically (or not so ironically) Joey’s is also originally from Canada, where they are direct competitors. With many urban residents scheduled to move to Downtown Bellevue within the next year, Earl’s would be an instant hit at Lincoln Square.


  1. Woot!

    I sent an email to someone at Earls last year suggesting an Eastside location.

  2. Nice, its about time they fill up that space. There’s quite a few vacancies at Lincoln now after Koots, Vino100, and Bombay all closed down.

  3. glad to hear the local economy is still going strong. it seems companies are still expanding here, while the rest of the country is seeing much tougher climates.

  4. i dont think its just a rumor…


    it says coming in spring of 2009
