Pearl Restaurant Review: This downtown Bellevue hot-spot, situated in Lincoln Square, offers a celebratory atmosphere and trendy décor. The central location makes it ideal for shoppers, casual business diners and pre-party-goers. The contemporary Northwest menu features seasonally changing dishes with Asian, Italian and French accents. Make a meal of small plates and salads, such as smoked salmon with fennel salad, or seared tiger prawns and beet salad with Champagne vinaigrette. Larger dishes include broiled duck breast with caramelized figs, sable fish in a honey-miso marinade, and Wagyu sirloin with blue cheese fritters. Desserts --- a welcome after-movie option --- include a butterscotch sundae with Madagascar vanilla ice cream and pecan brittle. The small wine list is carefully selected. Service is attentive and professional.
