Bellevue


Spazzo Italian Grill, a longtime Bellevue restaurant on the top floor of the Key Bank Building, will close May 27.

According to Bill Schwartz, chairman and founder of Schwartz Brothers Restaurants, the building has been sold and the new owners want to convert the ninth-floor space into offices. Spazzo opened in 1992, replacing Benjamin’s. A Schwartz Brothers restaurant has occupied the space since 1979.

President Lindsey Schwartz said the company is considering other opportunities in the Seattle and Eastside markets. Meanwhile, they’re hoping to place Spazzo employees in other company businesses.
