Easter & Weekend Brunch in Downtown Bellevue
Staying at home doesn’t mean Easter activities have to come to a halt. Looking for a special dinner or weekend brunch? Several businesses in Downtown Bellevue have put together curbside and delivery options for Easter baskets, meals and treats. Here are some of our local favorites:
Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi
Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi may not be able to serve you 31-stories above ground, but they can serve you an exceptional meal you can enjoy at home. Two chef-prepared Easter dinner options include delicacies such as roasted prime rib, herb-crusted rack of lamb, milk buns with honey butter, truffle deviled eggs, and a “bunny trap” pot de crème… need we say more?
Cépaé & L’experience Paris
Looking for local Easter basket goodies? L’Experience Paris has created homemade milk and dark chocolate Easter eggs. For parents and those 21+, adult Easter baskets are available for pickup, which include traditional French confections and a bottle of rosé. They’re also offering their special weekend brunch menu and a five-course Easter meal.
McCormick & Schmicks
If you have a family to feed, McCormick & Schmicks is offering a full Easter dinner. Includes four entrees (Atlantic salmon, filet mignon, crab cakes), choice of salad, two sides, and a cheesecake dessert. And did we mention the half-priced bottles of wine and beer to-go?
Central Bar & Restaurant
Get your pre-order in for Central's delicious Easter Brunch meal. Enough food for four people, including chicken & waffles, Greek yogurt with granola, and house-made breakfast potatoes. They're even including a complimentary bottle of Zonin Prosecco and orange juice so you can make mimosas at home.
Hedge & Vine
Create custom Easter baskets and gifts, selected from fine wines, specialty foods and beautiful home goods. They’ll help curate your basket, call or email to place your order for pickup.
John Howie Steak
Now offering curbside Butcher Boxes, which provide the base meats of up to seven meals for (4) family members. The “Easter and Beyond” box contains seven different meats, twice-baked potatoes, salted caramel tarts, and of course special JHS steak seasonings. A full curbside menu is also available online. And yes, the tempura bacon is still available to-go.
Cook your own elegant meal.
For those of you staying home this weekend, get creative in the kitchen! Whole Foods has provided ten delicious recipes to give you some inspiration.
Buy or gift a bouquet.
Brighten a home with colorful flowers! Although floral shops are closed, Cafe Cesura and Bellden Cafe have pivoted their cafes to help other local businesses. Pre-order a beautiful bouquet from Thao Farms, a local grower who would typically sell their flowers at Pikes Market. They have two pick-up days at Cafe Cesura. You can also pre-order a bouquet from P&K Gardens (typically at the Bellevue Farmers Market), and pick-up at Bellden Cafe.
The COVID-19 virus has especially been devastating to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Thankfully, you can still support these farmers by purchasing their tulips from Safeway, Albertsons, or directly from Tulip Town or RoozenGaarde. Tulips can also be enjoyed virtually on Facebook.
Whatever you choose to celebrate, we wish everyone in Bellevue a wonderful weekend. Stay safe, support local, eat well.
