The owner of 0/8 Seafood Grill and Twisted Cork Wine Bar, Chef Dan Thiessen, has plans to open a new restaurant concept at Bellevue Place in Downtown Bellevue: Stir Martini & Raw Bar.
The new concept is anticipated to open in July 2009, alongside the opening of the Bellevue Place Hyatt Regency Expansion. The 4,400 square-ft. space will take up part of where RAG Mens Style currently occupies, as RAG will close their doors to business within the next 2 months. The restaurant will be on the first floor and allow for outdoor patio seating.
The restaurant’s interior will be done by Seattle’s Dynamik Space and will have the look and feel of a modern Pacific Northwest lodge.
Both 0/8 Seafood Grill and Twisted Cork Wine Bar, and Stir Martini & Raw Bar, will be under the newly formed “Chef Dan Restaurants,” a newly created management group.
