18 Best Things to Do in Bellevue, Washington

“Flo is very Japanese, from the elegant simplicity of the décor to the artistry of the bento boxes they put together for your lunch. This very traditional sushi restaurant and sake bar offers a large selection of sushi and sashimi that shows true respect for the simplicity sushi represents, with the freshest possible ingredients, authentic Japanese condiments, and a few nods to the Western palate they cater to. This fine balance between Japanese tradition and Western taste is uniquely Flo’s.

There is enough for the Japanese food connoisseurs and purists – try horenso gomae (wilted spinach with shaved bonito and roasted black sesame) – and Westerner’s favorites such as the California roll or the Washington Roll, a local favorite. If you want to really give yourself a treat, go for Omakase, the chef’s choice with a sake pairing.”
