[SEA] Chowhoundish Eating In Eastgate?

Matt Hall | Mar 2, 200509:52 AM     4

I'm in Seattle for a temporary contract position. I work in a little tiny cube in a huge office building in South Bellevue right next to I-90.

All of the restaurants I have been able to find in Eastgate and/or the much more crowded and inaccessible Factoria have been fast food joints or places that friends have told me would not have good food. Is there some secret neighborhood hidden among the snarled maze of curved, hilly Bellevue side streets that I failed to notice?

Where can I do to get good food before my head explodes from sheer boredom? I know plenty of places in other areas up here, but there's a serious dearth of good stuff near work, and I don't like the prospect of 1/3 of my meals being crappy ones.

I'm into Italian, Thai (mmm, spicy), Barbeque, Burgers, and whatever else Chowhounds think is good to try, too. I'm OK with any price range as long as I can get a selection of several kinds of pricing. Then I can pick a fancy place once in a while and go on the cheap other times.
