Dear Lea,
Last year you wrote about where to go out to eat on Easter Sunday. We don’t have reservations yet, but my family and I would like to go out in Downtown Bellevue. What are the offerings?
– Eager for Eggs

Dear “Eager for Eggs,”

It’s not too late. There are plenty of places in Downtown Bellevue offering Easter specials this Sunday. Whether it’s brunch and a visit from the Easter bunny or a 3-course meal, Downtown Bellevue restaurants have you covered. Here’s what’s happening:

Brunch: 6:30am – 1:30pm. Crisp pepper bacon and cheddar omelette, Eggs benedict, Vanilla bean yogurt parfait, and more.
Dinner: 2pm – 9pm. Butternut squash ravioli, Cedar plank salmon, Filet mignon, and more.

0/8 Seafood Grill
Brunch: 9:30am – 2:30pm. Fabulous food by Chef Dan. $4 mimosas for the adults; a surprise visit from the Easter bunny for the kids.


Daniel’s Broiler
Brunch: 10am – 2pm. Homemade Scones with honey butter and raspberry preserves, a starter, and an entree.
Dinner: Beginning at 4pm.

Brunch: 11am – 3pm. $3 Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar for the adults; photos with the Easter bunny for the kids.

Pearl Bar & Dining
Dinner: 12pm – 9pm. Local and seasonal cuisine.

McCormick & Schmick’s
Dinner: $29.95. 3-course meal of steak and stuffed shrimp.

Bis On Main
Winemaker Dinner: $110pp. Guests will be poured a generous sampling of 7 Mark Ryan wines to paired with a 6-course dinner by Chef Christopher Peterson.

I’m always a proponent for Z’Tejas brunch, and the specials at Daniel’s sound delicious as well. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope you have a joyful Sunday filled with good company and great food!

Here to put your chicks in a row,


  1. Just to let you know, you should really have someone double check all of the spelling before you publish the article for all to see. For example, I noticed someone used the incorrect spelling of “whether” in the Ask Lea post titled “Eggs, Bunnies and Brunch!”

  2. Thank you Betty! It has been updated. Too much sun today!! ; )

    Some of us girls would like to go out to brunch in downtown Bellevue on a Sunday. Do you recommend any brunch spots in DT Bellevue and/or Bellevue Square?

  4. Certainly! 520 Bar and Grill is great; it’s on Main Street in Old Bellevue. I also really enjoy Pirouette Cafe for crepes and omelets; it’s on 102th, tucked in an alley off of Main Street. Z’Tejas at The Lodge at Bellevue Square has awesome Sunday brunch starting at 11am; they even have a Bloody Mary bar! Otherwise, there’s always good traditional breakfast at Palomino on Bellevue Way at Lincoln Square. Enjoy ladies!
