Openings: New on the Scene a July 14, 2010

LOT No. 3, located in Bellevue Towers in Bellevue, Wash., is a casual eatery and bar from the Heavy Restaurant Group. Executive Chef Mike Davis created a seasonal menu of gastro fare including duck confit and seafood gumbo. LOT No. 3’s beverage menu focuses on beer and brown liquor, highlighting the Manhattan, which features a choice of six whiskies, four types of bitters and three different sweet vermouths. The beer menu includes six rotating beers on draft and 50-plus bottle varieties. There are also a dozen specialty cocktails and a wine by-the-glass list selected by wine director Dawn Smith. The restaurant’s exposed brick walls and metal accents give the space a masculine aesthetic with a second floor that looks out over the whole space. The patio is set to open later this summer.
