Across from Vito’s—where the First Hill Bar & Grill finally retired after 34 glorious, divey years—Lotus is brought to us by Ridgley Kuang, owner of Green Leaf in Belltown and the ID. Some of Green Leaf’s massive and massively delicious Vietnamese menu has migrated, and they’re also serving Chinese dishes. The interior looks pleasant, and the prices look low, and there’s a bar, too. YES!
