Crossroads Bar and Grill – Crossroads Bar and Grill is new to Bellevue in 2010 and in my opinion, a nice addition to the Crossroads Mall (and east Bellevue area). The bar area is substantial and offers a nice option to sitting in the dining area. The menu has a nice range of salads, burgers and sandwiches. Most sandwiches are served on a ciabatta roll which makes a nice meal. They have daily specials (including happy hour) and breakfast is served until 2 pm on weekends (at least this was our experience). This location is the fifth of the Neighborhood Grills family.

Doofers – this “rural” sports bar will please as there are many TVs for viewing your favorite team and/or game. Doofers is located in the east part of the Renton Highlands at 16430 SE 128th St. The staff was nice enough to change a number of TVs to various games so that we could have the optimal viewing experience for Sunday NFL football. We shared the beef sliders (served on potato rolls) and wings…choosing the mild sauce (great flavor). Yelp.com has a variety of reviews…mostly good but service and wait time seem to be an issue here and there.
Something I missed this month… Seattle Restaurant week http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/seattlerestaurantweek/ In case you missed it also, check out the next Seattle Restaurant Week in the Spring.
And something old….Elysian Fields. Need to give a shout out to Jimmy…great service, best bartender in the city! Strongly recommending the Lamb Ragu – really good, the noodles that were used made it extra special. Skip the Cuban Sandwich.
