UPDATE: Chatalas brothers to offer 'unique and exciting addition to Eastside dining scene' | Tavern Hall to replace shuttered Munchbar

Details are set to be released next week detailing brothers Bret and Marc Chatalas' vision for what Tavern Hall is going to be as it replaces the shuttered Munchbar in downtown's Bellevue Square.

According to permits issued by the city of Bellevue, Munchbar is to be remodeled and opened as Tavern Hall, a new dining establishment headed up by the Chatalas brothers, who own several Cactus restaurants in the area. They recently opened one in Bellevue Square. One building permit includes a 90-square-foot addition using space from an existing breezeway. Wilcox Construction will perform the work, as it did with the Bellevue Square Cactus location. Strata Architects of Seattle is handling the design.

Neither the Chatalas nor property owner Kemper Development Company are commenting at this time, but Marc Chatalas confirmed the project and that details will be released sometime next week in an email to the Reporter.

"I will say this," Marc Chatalas states, "there is more to this story and project than can be inferred from the permits, licenses and applications that are in the public record at this time. This will be a very unique and exciting addition to the Eastside dining scene."
