For those who want to enjoy their wine with some food, Grand Cru Wine Bar will have a series of small and large plates, as well as desserts.

Happy hour will offer half price on select food and wine, 6 days a week: Tuesday – Sunday, 4pm-6pm and 9pm-close.

Since Vino 100 closed at Lincoln Square, the Downtown Bellevue area has been missing a true wine shop in a high traffic location.


  1. So Pete’s is not a true wine shop and vino 100 was. Come on.

  2. Pete’s Wine Shop not a real wine shop? Are you kidding me?????

  3. Thanks, I have clarified in the article. I had intended that to mean that DTB has been missing a true wine shop in a high trafficked area. (not missing one altogether)

  4. What about Twisted Cork? Is Bellevue Place not considered a “high trafficked area”?

  5. I would think that note could easily be omitted from the article – granted most of businesses around Pete’s have moved out, it’s right off Main.

    Is there that much traffic passing by the Grand Cru? There isn’t a ton of foot traffic in that area!

    If you say – missing a true wine ship in a high traffic location, my impression is that this would be a high traffic location – similar to the one you mentioned at Lincoln Square!

    Why not delete the comment – it has no value to the article, it seems to be we are still missing a true wine shop in a high traffic location!

  6. Sounds to me like the unsuccessful “vino 100” is going to make another stab at it. It reads very self-serving. Best of luck:)
