Michelin Star Chef Michael Mina Announces Opening of Bourbon Steak October 2021 in Seattle

SEATTLE, Wash. (May 27, 2021) – Michelin Star Chef and Restaurateur Michael Mina has announced his newest Bourbon Steak restaurant will officially open in downtown Seattle this fall. Bourbon Steak is a legacy brand for the acclaimed MINA group, with seven award winning locations across the country.

A modern American steakhouse that features creative interpretations of classic steakhouse dishes, Bourbon Steak uses the highest quality ingredients and an innovative culinary approach. The restaurant will focus on seasonal, regional ingredients and all-natural, organic and hormone free cuts of beef tempered in herb infused butter and wood grilled to order. Bourbon Steak will also be home to some of Seattle’s freshest seafood and shellfish with shipments arriving daily.

Menu highlights include hand-cut beef or ahi tuna tartare tableside, farmer’s market salads, and Michael Mina signatures such as Lobster Pot Pie and a trio of duck fat French fries for every table. Expect assorted seasonal sides such as black truffle mac & cheese, mirin glazed mushrooms, and crispy Brussels; and decadent desserts including classic crème brulee and spiced apple tart.

​“Growing up outside of Seattle, this project is very close to home for me,” says Mina. “I wanted to strengthen downtown in a big way and found Bourbon Steak to be the perfect fit for the next iteration of the area.”

An extensive bar program will feature hand-crafted signature cocktails highlighting spirits from local distilleries and around the world, a selection of local and domestic beers, and a substantial wine list featuring over 450 selections representing iconic vintners from the world’s most renowned wine-producing regions.

MINA Group is working closely on this project with Urban Renaissance Group to drive revitalization of Seattle’s downtown corridor. Both companies believe in the city’s strength and resilience and have confidence in the region and downtown Seattle.

“With an impressive collection of innovative restaurant concepts located across the country, MINA Group is beloved and well-known,” said Urban Renaissance Group CEO Patrick Callahan. “Michael’s Bourbon Steak is the perfect fit for this space and location. It’s a true testament to the continuing strength, recovery and revitalization of the retail core throughout downtown—we’re so pleased to welcome Bourbon Steak to its first Seattle location.” 

Bourbon Steak will be located in the iconic Joshua Green building at 1433 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101 (previously home to RN74). The space will seat 125 in the dining room, with an additional 20 seats at the bar, and offer a private dining room with space for 16. It will be open Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday from 5-9PM, and Friday and Saturday from 5-9:30PM.
