New in Bellevue

Downtown Bellevue had two restaurants open Friday night, Munchbar and Piano Bash, bringing some new and adverse venues/nightlife to the always blooming city of Bellevue.  The two restaurants are the brain children of MunchGroup, a team of three Las Vegas-based professionals with combined talents of culinary expertise, and business marketing and management.   Munchbar offers unique dishes to “hit the spot” including jazzed up versions of pizza, and mac n’cheese, as well as homestyle cooking like chicken and waffles.  The interior, as I’ve been told, looks like “stuff out of a comic book”, as quoted by a friend who wasn’t so impressed.  I think that this type of fun atmosphere may be a good addition to the sometimes stuffy feel of Bellevue.  The restaurant also turns into a nightclub, weekends after 10 p.m. complete with spinning DJs and a dance floor.   Piano Bash is said to be entirely different, however, being the first dueling piano bar in Bellevue.  Other well-known piano bars in the Greater Seattle area include Chopstix and 88 Keys.  I’ve enjoyed Chopstix the times I’ve gone, and being an Eastside resident, I’m happy to hear that a similar venue will be much closer to me.  Piano Bash offers small plates from the shared kitchen and cocktails from a large bar.  Pianists at dueling pianos take requests and invite you to sing along.  This weekend, the grand opening will continue with Saturday the 5th’s  appearance of Frank Mir, UFC Heavyweight Champion hosting a UFC party and Sunday the 6th,  throwing a major party for the Super Bowl.   I can’t wait to see this place for myself.  I’m ready to see something new
