Bothell
About the restaurant
The krō bär is an eclectic bar with a speakeasy vibe and a passion for spirits and great food with a nod to another era.

Tucked away on Main Street in Bothell, a walkable neighborhood teaming with local art, culture and food, the artfully handcrafted krō bär has been reclaimed from the bones of Bothell’s historic hardware store in the Mohn building. The 16-foot-high tin ceilings, a hanging catwalk and the original wood floors were uncovered and restored.

Please note we are 21 and older only.

Due to the size of our location, we are unable to seat parties of more than 4 guests.

About the restaurant
Montalcino Ristorante Italiano, an intimate restaurant in Olde Town Issaquah, Washington.

From the moment you walk in we hope you will feel like you are a guest in our living room. We believe authentic Italian food and wine are a way of life. All dishes are prepared with passion and tradition using only the freshest, highest quality, real Italian ingredients. Montalcino is a perfect location for a romantic date night, elegant birthday or anniversary celebration, a relaxed family dinner, or any special occasion.

A quality menu with a unique wine selection including wines produced throughout Italy as well as some wines from the beautiful state of Washington.

Buon Appetito and Salute!

We love this restaurant. The food is so so good. There are about 25 people at tables so it’s an intimate affair. But they make you feel special especially if it’s a special occasion. We will keep going.

About the restaurant
Experience the travels of Ernest Hemingway through your palette; eating and drinking your way through the cities that Hemingway loved to frequent; Havana, Paris, Florence and Pamplona (where he discovered his love for bull fighting!) to name a few.
We focus on locally sourced, farm-to-table menus with hand crafted cocktails, as fluid as the seasons.
Like Ernest Hemingway our hunger knows no borders!
Open to those 21 and older.

Woodinville
About the restaurant
Von’s Woodinville features true Seattle Sourdough, bespoke spirits, scratch cocktails, and the legendary Wagering Wheel. We are located down the street from Woodinville Whiskey, and next door to Novelty Hill Winery. Von’s features the city’s largest collection of spirits, over 1000 and growing. Our kitchen specializes in sourdough pizza and pasta, prime marbled hamburgs and made-to-order salmon chowder.

We are equally excited to introduce Northwest Spirits (now open!), our family craft distillery, which will be intimately situated next door. Come sample our Bar Boss and Savor Spear collections. Rich in flavor and aroma, these are reward spirits for your Halcyon Days.

Bellevue
About the restaurant
From the owners of Il Terrazzo Carmine, one of Seattle"s most iconic and beloved establishments, comes Carmine's Bellevue. Carmine's Bellevue brings to the east side the same level of quality in service, food, and ambiance that has made its sister restaurant a true institution in Downtown Seattle. Located at 88 102nd Avenue in Bellevue's historic Old Bellevue neighborhood, Carmines is nestled against Bellevue Park. With a rustic, timeless interior, Carmine's provides patrons an escape from the increasingly urbanized way of life. Upscale and elegant, Carmine's feels anything but stiff and pretentious. Good for business meetings, special occasions, or simply dining with loved ones, Carmine's Bellevue is a true destination on the east side.
