  1. Thank you for the update regarding this exciting new restaurant in Bellevue. Chef Jason Wilson’s first restaurant, Crush, was contemporary northwest cuisine. It is now closed. His second restaurant, Miller’s Guild, is the “wood-fired steakhouse.” Regardless, his culinary skills will be a welcome addition to the Bellevue food scene.
