the best food for the soul in seattle is at JuneBaby

One of the hottest restaurants in Seattle for a while now has been JuneBaby, in the Ravenna neighborhood. We’d been reading about it for years, and on a recent trip to the city we decided to pay a visit. Because we ourselves are June babies, we felt somewhat obligated to see what all the fuss was about. And there’s been a lot of fuss: earlier this year, chef Edouardo Jordan took home not one, but two James Beard Awards, widely considered the highest honors in the restaurant industry. He was crowned Best Chef: Northwest and JuneBaby earned the award for Best New Restaurant in the country, making Jordan the first African-American ever to win that national category.
