What a charming place! Everything was perfect from the greeting at the door to the magnificent food to the outstanding service. You MUST have reservations as the place is tiny - maybe 8-10 tables.

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.

Every Kro Bar experience is a delight, and tonight was no exception. Chef Dan, Cameron, and the rest of the amazing staff entertained and delighted my taste buds with fantastic and inventive food and drink. The Cavatelli Putanesca was out of this world, and I can’t wait for my next visit!

Very nice tasting menu. My favorites were risotto, wagyu croccante and lamb chop. I had an outstanding glass of wine from Botanica. Service was superb.

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.

Every time we come the food gets better. Fernando and the rest of the Nardone family treat us like one of their own. The meal was fantastic! It was the best chicken Parmesan I have had, and my wife who had the giant meatball was amazed at the flavor and can not wait to come back. Thank you Fernando, Cindy, Tony and the rest of your team.

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.
