Local Burger in Bellevue Now Offers Catered Box Meals



Bellevue businesses and patrons now have a sustainable and local option for box meals

Local Burger , Bellevue’s latest hotspot for affordable, locally-sourced and sustainable options now offers box catering deliveries and catering platters.

Paseo is closed. Forever.



The #2 top rated restaurant on Yelp in the United States has closed unexpectedly today due to claims filed from employees. The popular Caribbean sandwich shop has closed both locations due to its recent lawsuit.  

Here is a post from a Reddit user earlier today

"Plaintiffs were treated differently than non-Hispanic and non-Mexican employees in the terms and conditions of their employment. On at least one occasion, a manager told them that he was "told that he was supposed to be hard on you guys" referring to Plaintiffs. Plaintiffs were also discouraged from and/or denied the opportunity to seek medical treatment when injured at work."
