Remember this blind item? If you guessed John Howie, you're right. He's bringing his popular Eastside concept to Westlake.
Howie tells me, "The lease is signed from my side. Seastar Seattle is on its way...opening in late January or early February."
He's also working on opening his new 9,000-square foot steak house in downtown Bellevue's Bravern development by fall of 2009.
