Central Bar + Restaurant | The Crown Jewell of Downtown Bellevue

We were greeted and hosted graciously by the owner Randi Brazen. Randi and her daughters designed the interior decor, which I think turned out very nice and makes people want to stay. It’s upscale and edgy yet comfortable. The restaurant has a special meaning when an owner is heavily involved in making sure that it’s designed well and the customers are happy with the food! Be sure to attend the weekend brunch, which runs half the day with unlimited Mimosas. Here’s what our residents had to say about.
