The new restaurant will be more reflective of the style of the Lincoln Square Expansion and the W Hotel, as it will be located at the foot of the residential towers and the doorstep of the new W Bellevue. "The 520 Bar and Grill reflects the character of Main Street's diverse neighborhood," says Joseph Brazen. "Our new concept in the Lincoln Square Expansion location will capture that same flavor but its design and vibe will take into consideration the worldwide travelers, upscale shoppers and guests as well as the young, vibrant nightlight that is now prevalent in downtown Bellevue."

"What Joseph and Randi have created at 520 is exactly the type of lively, welcoming and unique gathering place we envision for the new Lincoln Square expansion," says Kemper Freeman, CEO and Chairman of the Board, Kemper Development Company. "They understand this community and through their experience on Main Street will be able to create a new gathering place that will welcome both people from around the world and around Puget Sound.  We are delighted to offer something unique and special from this local couple who will bring to our community their vision, energy and style."

The new restaurant will join a host of retail and entertainment options servicing the future residents at the 231 luxury apartments, the guest at the 245 room W Bellevue, and the millions of guests visiting The Bellevue Collection annually.
