Bradley Dickinson and Mikel Rogers, of PEARL Bar & Dining, will open their new downtown eatery this week, offering reasonably priced, upscale American cuisine served in an inviting atmosphere.
KORAL Bar & Kitchen opens on Thursday, March 1, in the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, at 900 Bellevue Way NE.
The restaurant’s “New American Kitchen” concept features appetizers, small plates, and regional American entrees, such as the Kitchen Burger with rosemary sea salt fries ($12), Blue Cheese Meatloaf with Yukon Gold potatoes and caramel carrots ($17), and the Imperial Farms Center-cut Sirloin with salt-roasted potatoes and tempura mushrooms ($21).
KORAL’s head chef, Peter Kelley, will take the lead in the open exhibition kitchen as well as assist Executive Chef Dickinson with menu development and day-to-day operations. The team also includes general manager Tracy Ducken, who has worked with Dickinson and Rogers at several Eastside restaurants.
Beginning Thursday, KORAL’s hours are 4pm to 10pm Monday through Saturday and 4pm to 9pm Sunday. A custom designed back bar will be open every day, from 3pm to midnight. Starting March 17, brunch will be served on Saturdays and Sundays, from 9am to 2pm.
