Twisted Cork Bellevue0/8 Seafood Grill & Twisted Cork Wine Bar will transform into Twisted Cork. The new restaurant concept will offer a new affordable menu full of Northwest cuisine.

Solstice Restaurant Group’s owner Matt Bomberger, who manages both STIR Martini + Raw Bar and Twisted Cork, felt that with the many fine dining options opening recently in Downtown Bellevue that there was room for a more casual dining experience.

“0/8 Seafood Grill was competing with an incredible number of eastside fine dining restaurants, however our wine bar, – which is decidedly more casual, has always drawn a loyal and lively crowd,” said Bomberger. “Evolving the Twisted Cork concept to offer a bistro style menu based on local ingredients allows us to fill a niche.”

Although the interior will mostly stay the same, the menu and pricing will change. Entrées will be priced from $15 to $24, and smaller plates will be priced from $6 to $13. Twisted Cork will continue to have their famous award-winning Washington and Northwest wine programs.
