When Jason Wilson closed his Crush restaurant back in August, he spoke of opening a new restaurant at some point. Now he's announcing more details: the James Beard Award-winning chef will bring a restaurant to Bellevue's upcoming W Bellevue hotel, to be housed in the Lincoln Square expansion. The restaurant is currently slated to open in the summer of 2017.

The restaurant doesn't have a name yet, but it does have a theme: the vibe is being described as "Pacific Northwest farmhouse, from design to menu." Expect it to be produce-focused, with local, seasonal sourcing. There will also be a craft cocktail bar a "cocktail-driven food menu." Graham Baba Architects will create a Pacific Northwest farmhouse design.

Wilson is also the executive chef of Miller's Guild and Coffee Flour, a wheat alternative made from the normally-discarded fruit of the coffee plant. Coffee Flour has a new test lab where Crush once stood at 23rd and Madison.
