A while back I went to Virgil's in Bellevue - it was new to the area and I'd heard some great things. I liked it but decided that after nearly a year - I needed to go back and see how they were doing! I was even sneaky about it - I follow them on Twitter but didn't tell them I was coming...
First, the location, I really love Bellevue. It's becoming such a great little neighborhood spot - if I didn't already own a house - I would TOTALLY think about living there! So much to walk to and right by the river!
But food - yes - food - that's what I'm here for. I had the special soup for the day - but it was over a week ago and I can't remember what it was! I remember there were mushrooms a plenty and I remember I loved it. How's that?
Larry got the fish special - it's why we went actually. They tweeted about it and it sounded good and we were hungry. It was really tasty. I was very impressed by the breading and the lightness of the fish. MMM MMM GOOD. (Fries were fine but nothing to special.)
I got the Cubano - and after the oddball "Cuban" at Hyde Park Tavern - I was a bit worried - would it actually be a Cuban?! It was! Hooray! It was really really great. Meaty and melty - just like it should be!
Why Should You Go? It's a really adorable place in a great neighborhood and the chef is the owner - so the food is great! I really like this option - it's also pretty affordable - which never hurts!
