Seattle's JuneBaby makes 'Best New Restaurant in America' list

We’ve heard lots of chatter around town about Ravenna's new neighborhood restaurant, JuneBaby since it's opening in May 2017 - but this may just be the best!

The restaurant just made Eater’s '12 Best New Restaurants in America' list!

Bill Addison from Eater travels the states to find the latest and greatest in restaurants. Here’s what he had to say about JuneBaby.

To glimpse the future of Southern cooking in America, look to the Pacific Northwest. Chef and owner Edouardo Jordan landed on 2016’s Best New Restaurants list with his modern American pleaser Salare. If Salare’s menu reads (and tastes) like a biography of Jordan’s impressive culinary career, with JuneBaby he reaches back to his Florida and Georgia roots, mapping out a survey of the region: Easy comforts like biscuits and pimento cheese segue to salads made with “swamp cabbage” (Sunshine State lingo for hearts of palm) and pickled strawberries, oxtails in consomme made from the meat’s poaching liquid, and chitterlings jeweled with carrots and rice. This is personal, scholarly cuisine, and it distinguishes Jordan as one of the country’s most accomplished and farseeing chefs devoted to Southern food.

We still have yet to visit this new restaurant, but consider it at the tippy TOP of our list! Have any of you all been there?! If you have let us know!
