Long time Bellevue residents may remember when there was a Duke’s Chowder house in downtown Bellevue adjacent to the original QFC grocery store and Thompson Drugs on NE 8th Street and its later move to Lake Bellevue. Dukes closed that location and left Bellevue in 2001.
The ownership of Duke’s announced this week plans for a new restaurant opening next year in the new Lincoln Square expansion at The Bellevue Collection. The new location, targeted for a late April 2017 opening, will be on the second floor near the new W Hotel. Duke’s will be one of 12 restaurants in the Lincoln Square expansion.
Duke’s was a popular Bellevue destination – it will be great to have Duke’s downtown again.
