Wind and rain blows East

Posted by Nancy Leson

First, Wild Ginger plans a second outpost in Bellevue, and now Monsoon is doing the same, as you can read here in Leslie Kelly's "On Dining" column. The upscale Vietnamese bistro blew me away when it opened nearly a decade ago and continues to do so today, and I'm happy to know that owner/chefs Eric and Sophie Banh chose to go the smaller route, taking over the shuttered Porcella Urban Market location in Old Bellevue where they'll install the new restaurant and bar, rather than blowing into some gargantuan mixed-use complex or honking-big mall, OD-ing their geographical footprint and diluting their unbelievably delicious product. ETA: fall.
