Al Fresco Friday:
Handcrafted Sweet Treats Under the Sun

Slather on some sunscreen and gear up for a patio crawl around your Bellevue stomping grounds. Savor some of Bellevue's most delicious cocktails and sweet treats served Al Fresco style - with plenty of sunshine, just in the nick of time for the holiday weekend!

 

520 Bar & Grill 

What to expect: A lively and laid back hangout offering classic American fare with an outdoor patio and pop soundtrack. 

What to order: Unwind and embrace the summer weather with a refreshing strawberry lemon drop, or try the signature 520 take with Blueberry Vodka and Chambord float. We also love the house-made bread pudding, soaked in rum, drizzled with caramel, topped with vanilla ice cream.


Bis on Main 

What to expect: A classy establishment with a European edge & more-casual lounge offering happy hour specials seven nights a week.

What to order: Choose from an array of premium scotch, bourbons and rye whiskey! We also recommend Tony’s secret recipe pecan pie served with fresh whipped cream.


Cantinetta 

What to expect: A vibrant, bustling Italian restaurant known for Tuscan traditions, handmade pastas from carefully sourced ingredients.

What to order: The decadent tiramisu or tropical panna cotta will send your tastebuds on a journey abroad!

 
Dough Zone Dumpling House 

What to expect: Customary, homemade Chinese comfort food in a modern setting. Specialties include Chinese buns like Q-Bao (Pan Fried Buns), Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumplings), and a variety of distinct, regional Chinese noodles.

What to order: Treat yourself to a scrumptious Mango Pancake, wrapped in a freshly baked crepe and topped with whipped cream and powdered sugar.

 

Mercato Stellina Pizzeria 

What to expect: Brick oven pizzeria known for its authentic crust - prepared in-house - fine-cured meats, delicious imported and local cheeses paired with Italian wine.

What to order: Their homemade tiramisu with mascarpone, cocoa and rum-soaked Lady Fingers is a must-try. They also serve assorted gelato or sorbet to cool off from the heat!


Monsoon 

What to expect: Contemporary Vietnamese cuisine with Western touches elegantly presented in a chic, contemporary setting.

What to order: Choose from a varied selection of sours, fizzes and bucks alongside spirit forward Manhattan flights, barrel-aged cocktails, and an inventive selection of house-made non-alcoholic beverages, like "Reaching For Summer," which features fresh squeezed lemon juice, basil seeds, and grapefruit bitters topped with ginger ale.
