Revel Gets a Nod in The New York Times

A few weeks ago, former New York Times restaurant critic Frank Bruni popped into Revel for lunch during his visit to Seattle. As it turns out, Bruni was working on a story about Seattle’s dining scene (“Seattle, A Tasting Menu”), which was published in the Times this week.

Here’s a little snippet on Revel:

“During lunch at Revel, a new contemporary Korean restaurant that is like a sleeker, sexier and slightly less accomplished Momofuku Ssam Bar, to use a Manhattan analogy, I had an outstanding riff on bibimbap, the traditional rice dish, with asparagus, pistachios and olives.”

Chef Jason Stratton and Artusi in Food & Wine

Food & Wine magazine recently did a story on Best New Chefs of years past who have gone on to open new restaurants and bars. Included in the story was our own Chef Jason Stratton (named Best New Chef in 2010).

Here’s a snippet of the piece:

‘”In Italy, there’s this hour-and-a-half before dinner when no one’s even thinking of eating, when the bars are packed,” says chef Jason Stratton. “The energy is really vibrant.” The Spinasse chef is hoping to bring that same buzz to his new bar, Artusi. The focus will be on Italian-inspired cocktails, aperitivos and simple dishes like squab in saor (fried and marinated in vinegar). Stratton painted the 43-foot-long mural for the walls. “I wanted to bring something to the place that’s a little bit playful,” he says.’
