Outdoor dining has been critical to many restaurants continuing their operations under COVID-19 capacity restrictions. Last year, the Bellevue Downtown Association worked with the City of Bellevue to streamline permitting and identify creative spaces where businesses could safely expand their footprint and welcome more customers safely. This year, in partnership with Microsoft, the "Al Fresco" program returns to the Heart of Bellevue to offer outdoor dining options in downtown Bellevue and beyond.

The program runs now through the summer, promoting on-street, sidewalk, parking lot, and private property patios together as tools to support restaurants and increase vibrancy. In addition to the collective on-street expansion of space on Main Street, more than 40 other restaurants are offering outdoor dining across the city.

Every Friday we spotlight several different outdoor restaurants around Downtown Bellevue as part of our Al Fresco Friday series.
