Bars where Pete has had a drink

#1348 - Mariposa, Bellevue, WA - 1/26/2011

This is the cafe in a famous old department store that preserves old school recipes for what people now call "comfort food."  As far as the bar goes, it is strictly mundane, but the food, quite surprisingly, became some of my favorite in downtown Bellevue -- a place with no shortage of good options for very good food despite the mall-ish surroundings.

You start with a tiny, complementary cup of the chicken broth.  But the chicken broth is really good.  I had a quite good triple grilled cheese sandwich with an excellent soup du jour, and then looked lustily at the slow braised pot roast.

It's not a place you'll go for a cocktail or the atmosphere, but the food merits a wider audience than the Bravern Neiman's shoppers.
