Bellevue’s Bradley+Mikel take a hack at The Hyatt Regency’s base with “New American kitchen” eats.

Once a restaurant goes American, there is no going back. No way to put gnocchi on the menu unless it’s housemade, can’t get around something Japanese unless it’s credited to Hawaii and local products are deities in their own right. Koral Bar + Kitchen finds some loopholes but for the most part, it pays respect to its made-in-America roots (cue Toby Keith song).
