Don’t we all have a little bit of Dorothy in us? Running away from one thing hoping to find something better.

you start looking for a home and you end up with something much greater. From Mt. Baker to the Semiahmoo sandspit, you clearly know... you’re not in Kansas anymore. I’ve always known there was a better way to practice real estate. A better way to tell the story of the home and the magic of the place.

There’s no place like home!

ince its inception, the James Beard Foundation has recognized bright culinary talent with their awards. But what spurred the development of such awards, and how did they grow to be the prestigious culinary trophy we know today? In an ever-changing landscape of gastronomy, the iconic ceremony has evolved to reflect the food and people it celebrates. — Dakota Mackey

MENU Winter 2019 13

The contenders are narrowed down by a panel of more than 600 judges, 300 of whom are previous chef and restaurant award winners.


he foundation’s namesake, James Beard, was known for opening his home kitchen to nearly anyone with a taste of culinary curiosity. A cookbook author, TV personality, teacher and cook, he was a mentor to many in the industry. After his death in 1985, colleagues and friends turned his house into a center for education and community, naming it the James Beard House. Notable chefs of that time, including Wolfgang Puck, cooked dinner at the James Beard House to both raise funds for more programs and give people in the community a unique culinary experience. In 1991, the first James Beard Foundation Awards were given, putting a spotlight on people accustomed to being behind the scenes. Before the emergence of cooking competition shows and proliferation of social media, chefs were not often recognized for their innovation. Some credit the Beard Awards for raising the bar of the industry and igniting a renewed sense of determination for evolution and curiosity. That first ceremony, which took place in May 1991 on a boat named the M.S. New Yorker, drew 1,000 attendees. Only 30 awards were given, which has since more than doubled. Among the winners were culinary giants Emeril Lagasse, Rick Bayless, and Wolfgang Puck, all of whom are now celebrity chefs — a concept that was just emerging. The New York Times later referred to the Beard Awards as “the Oscars of the food and beverage industry.” Similar to the iconic award shows, the Beard Awards have evolved to


better reflect American culture and its vastly diverse perspectives and backgrounds. In time for the 2018 ceremony, the James Beard Foundation announced that in addition to exceeding standards for quality food and service, the winners must also be true to “the values of respect, transparency, diversity, sustainability and equality.” The contenders are narrowed down by a panel of more than 600 judges, 300 of whom are previous chef and restaurant award winners. Twenty semifinalists are picked in each category and announced in late winter. The restaurant categories are judged with the same principles in mind but with a slightly difference lens. The Best New Restaurant category needs to have opened in the calendar year before the award is given and be one that “already displays excellence in food, beverage, and service, and that is likely to make a significant impact in years to come.” The Outstanding Chef award goes to the individual who has influenced industry standards and stood as an inspiration to others. Though the restaurant and chef categories of Best New Restaurant and Outstanding Chef are the most well-known, awards are given in many facets of the industry, including books, journalism, broadcast media, lifetime achievement, leadership, restaurant design and graphics. Seattle’s own Rachel Belle was nominated in 2018 for her podcast, “Your Last Meal.” Washington state has historically been slower on the food scene than, say, New York … continued on page 16

MENU Winter 2019 15

2018 was a huge year with 20 local semifinalists in the running. Spanning several categories. … or California, but local chefs have continually been recognized by the Beard Awards with growing momentum. Some noteworthy wins include Seattle’s John Sundstrom of Lark, who won Best Chef Northwest in 2007, beating out four other greater-Seattle chefs including Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez of Harvest Vine and Holly Smith of Cafe Juanita. Lark has since moved to its new location on Seneca Street in Capitol Hill, but the focus on locally produced ingredients remains. Sundstrom works with local artisans like Penn Cove Shellfish, Theo’s Chocolate and Mt. Townsend Creamery to procure the best of the Pacific Northwest. Three years later, Jerry Traunfeld won the same award for The Herbfarm, a longtime Woodinville establishment known for its fixed nine-course menu and highly decorated dining room. The essential Northwest restaurant reinforces their farm-to-table manifesto with a menu that reflects the seasons and predinner farm tour to meet the pigs. In 2016, Renee Erickson won Best Chef: Northwest for her restaurant The Whale Wins. Known in town for her bright, airy spaces often filled with crusty bread with butter, house made pickles and seafood, she is a force. Now with six popular food brands around the city, Erickson even expanded to the donut business with her brand General Porpoise. This was her first win but not her last nomination. 2018 was a huge year with 20 local semifinalists in the running. Spanning several categories, nominees included Evan Andres of Columbia City Bakery for the Outstanding Baker award, Matsuko Soma of Kamonegi for Best Chef: Northwest and Erickson of Bateau for Outstanding Chef. The knockout, though, was Edouardo Jordan, who brought home the title of Best New Restaurant for JuneBaby and Best Chef: Northwest for Salare. Jordan is the first African-American to win the award for Best New Restaurant. This came after Pete 16

Wells of the New York Times gave JuneBaby a commendatory 3-star review, honoring the significance of the food Jordan is making that represents not only his Southern upbringing but also “traces that story back to where it meets the country’s.” As if it weren’t challenging enough to get in for JuneBaby’s Sunday fried-chicken dinner, the mountain of accolades and write-ups have added to the frenzy. Some recommend hitting up JuneBaby’s moonshine hour (3-5 p.m.) as a strategy to be comfortably perched at a coveted table when the plates of fried chicken make their way out to the dining room at 5 p.m. The dinner includes pieces of buttermilk fried chicken, a seasonal side and a flaky biscuit. Not to be overlooked, Jordan’s other restaurant, Salare, earned him the title of Best Chef: Northwest. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Ravenna, the kitchen puts out gloriously vibrant dishes of seasonal fare. Like JuneBaby, the deep respect for ingredients is clear. The menu tastefully oscillates between influences from America’s South, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean Islands. Though the menu changes often, homemade pasta is constant. It may include risotto with lobster mushrooms, fennel confit and creme fraiche or spaghetti with merguez sausage, chickpeas, preserved lemon and the Egyptian condiment, dukkah. After a grand 2018, the flourishing food scene in greater Seattle should only continue to blossom. The competition is fierce, and the standards for service, taste and ambiance are high, with a growing attention to social responsibility. Folks at the helm of this undeniable pleasure of dining out deserve continual praise. Preparations for the 2019 James Beard Awards in Chicago are already taking shape. The judging panel will include Seattle’s own Providence Cicero of The Seattle Times. Be on the lookout for the semi-finalists announcement in February. 

C “I’m a huge scallop girl. Every season, I’ll always have scallops on the menu. It’s one of my absolute favorite things to make.”

hef Breanna Beike, owner and chef of Heritage Restaurant | Bar in Woodinville, lives by her mission to provide affordable, unique dishes for everyone. Her “come-as-you-are” mentality welcomes those in suits or sweatpants. The comfortable, inviting atmosphere attracts not only out-of-town visitors, but loyal weekly customers from the Woodinville area. The restaurant opened in April 2018, and features main courses that range from $16 to $32. The Heritage Burger with house cut fries is offered on both the lunch and dinner menu for $15. They also offer dry age beef and a $40 ribeye special that is not to be missed. Beike, 35, was Executive Chef at the Seattle Yacht Club for four years prior to opening Heritage Restaurant | Bar . Before that, she worked as a chef at four restaurants in Chicago. Heritage Restaurant | Bar shares a building with Milbrandt Vineyards and the Ryan Patrick Tasting Room, both owned by Beike’s longtime friends and professional associates Butch and Lisa Milbrandt. Beike, who manages both the business and the kitchen of Heritage Restaurant | Bar, took the time to speak with us about her passion for affordable, delicious food and her desire to treat her business like a family. See

What is new at your restaurant? What has remained and worked well? We try to stay tried-and-true to where we started. Seasonality and affordability are big goals for us. Things that are new — I have a small menu for Milbrandt Ryan Patrick Tasting Room, so our restaurant is able to service both the surrounding tasting rooms on either side of our business. I want us to remain approachable, so that you can come in in a dress and heels or a suit, or you can come in in jeans and a baseball cap and enjoy a nourishing, local, seasonal dish without it breaking the bank and while feeling comfortable doing it. What do you recommend from the menu? I’m a huge scallop girl. Every season, I’ll always have scallops on the menu. It’s one of my absolute favorite things to make. I didn’t grow up in a house that was predominant with seafood, so to be able to do that and change out the accouterments seasonally, is really fun. You don’t see a lot of whole-roasted trout in the area, you see a lot of salmon and halibut and things like that. I try to stay away from the


norm and do things that you typically wouldn’t see on a menu. The whole-roasted trout has become one of our signature dishes. One of my biggest reasons for moving out here is that I love seafood, I love shellfish, I love oysters. We always have oysters on the menu. I always have a seasonal clam dish, and we also do Dungeness crab donut holes. They’ve become a super popular starter for us as well. We’ve created an environment that is ever-changing with the seasons. My menus don’t stay in place very long, and I don’t want them to. I want to keep things fresh and exciting. There’s always mainstays on the menu, but every eight weeks or so we are changing things up on the menu and I think that’s really important. We feature daily specials that change every couple of days, and I think that’s important to keep it fresh and exciting, and I just don’t want to become stale. What are some challenges you face as owner and chef at Heritage Restaurant | Bar? To cook every day, that’s a goal of mine. Being the manager of the entire place I have my hands in every single pot. But that pot might not always be the pot I’m stirring in the kitchen: There are many other living and breathing parts of this business that require my attention. Your website describes Heritage as a “come-as-you-are” atmosphere. What does this mean to you, and why is it important? I grew up in the Midwest where there is a sense of midwestern hospitality. I’m a very simple person and have a simple philosophy that every day is a dinner party. I’m very approachable and try to have my restaurant be approachable, and ultimately I’m relaying how I’d want people to feel if they walked into my home. Where does your passion for food come from? Family, for sure. My mom made dinner five to six nights out of the week, everything was from scratch. She never opened up a box, so I feel pretty lucky to have been raised in a situation that was focused on quality food. We didn’t have a whole lot of money, but I’ll tell you that when you pull tomatoes out of a garden, you get really excited. Why is the food industry, and your restaurant specifically, important to you? I think there’s something to be said about seeing a smile on somebody’s face when they’ve just enjoyed a fabulous meal. That gets me out of bed every day! Everybody’s got to eat, you know. If you can create a fun environment and do things slightly different, putting your own spin on it, I think that’s what makes us unique. What food or meal is your guilty pleasure? Any kind of brothy seafood with a big, crusty baguette. A really great sauce that you can dip bread into, Oh my god! I could do it every day, but I think my waistline would continue to grow. To be quite honest, I [also] love American cheese! I know that it’s processed and whatever else, but I love it! I grew up with it, and I’ll eat it in a grilled cheese or I’ll even put it in mac and cheese. It’s just one of those goofy things that I haven’t really ever let go.  MENU Winter 2019 25

We are the easy, fun, downto-earth center of the Hollywood Hill roundabout and a destination in vibrant Woodinville. Heritage is a come-as-you-are kind of place that you’ll love.

ulalip Resort Casino’s newest dining venue, Tula Bene Pastaria + Chophouse, builds upon familiar Italian-inspired house-made pastas combined with a wide selection of premier steaks. Chef Jeremy Taisey takes diners on an unexpected culinary experience. Guests can begin their evening from a generous selection of appetizers, featuring the Salumi Antipasti Platter, Pancetta Wrapped Prawns, or the Hand Stretched Pizzetta made with local cheese and garlic oil. Entrée highlights feature six prime and upper choice Double R Ranch steaks, Chef Jeremy’s House-made D’Angelo Sausages, Prosciutto Wrapped Halibut, and the Half-Roasted Chicken with melted leeks and cremini mushrooms. The Tula Bene menu wouldn’t be complete without daily freshly-made pasta such as the signature interactive tableside prepared Cacio e Pepe, which is a traditional chitarra pasta tossed with pecorino cheese and black pepper, Ricotta Gnocchi with preserved lemon, Tagliatelle with smoked oysters or the Lobster Ravioli served with sous vide lobster medallions. “Chef Jeremy Taisey has a real zest for preparing and creating fresh housemade Italian dishes and is always finding local products to feature on his seasonally inspired menus. The restaurant will offer a contemporary dinner menu that will be prepared fresh daily, creating a relaxed fun escape,” shares Executive Chef Perry Mascitti.

A few sweet temptations from Pastry Chef Nikol Nakamura’s kitchen include her Budino with white chocolate, Sweet Pecorino Cake with candied tomatoes, olive oil gelato, candied basel, and pecorino frico, or her Flourless Chocolate Torte with blood orange segments. Under the stewardship of Sommelier Tom Thompson, the restaurant will offer an approachable European-inspired wine list featuring a rotating selection of more than 30 wines by the glass and a full bar showcasing artfully handcrafted cocktails. Dinner and bar service will be offered Thursday and Sunday from 5pm-10pm and Friday and Saturday from 5pm-11pm.

About Chef Jeremy Taisey Native to the Seattle area, Jeremy Taisey has always been fascinated by the happenings in the kitchen. It was during an Easter brunch at a local hotel that he decided to become a chef and enroll himself in the Edmonds Community College Culinary Arts program which allowed him to fulfill his dream. In 2006, Jeremy Taisey decided to pack his belongings and venture to Beijing, China, to marry his fiancé of three years. It was during his time in China that Jeremy Taisey’s career really

took off. During his nomadic culinary journey, he cooked for many famous individuals, such as the Governor of Beijing, Israel’s Prime Minister, the Princess of Thailand, and actors Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Christopher Lloyd. Jeremy Taisey returned to his hometown in 2012, bringing with him a blend of unique experiences and an unparalleled skill set.

Bake’s Place




A place that is part live music venue, part sports bar and part restaurant with a seasonally rotating menu could be confused and unsatisfying. Done well, there is something for everyone, creating a go-to spot where people want to congregate for any occasion. Bake’s Place is bursting with dimensions, including the largest patio in downtown Bellevue. While the kitchen puts out a seasonally rotating menu, the bar boasts 170 bourbons and whiskies. Regardless of the occasion, Bake’s Place is elevating the typical bar scene and assembling people for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night drinks with entertainment. The Olympia Provisions charcuterie board with local cured meats, baguette and accompaniments is ideal for a post-work meet-up, paired with a glass of wine from the well-curated wine program.

The small — and dare we say, moody — bar is tucked into 12th Avenue in Capitol Hill. Boasting the largest collection of spirits in the country, Canon has 4,000 labels and counting. The expansive menu has something for everyone, including spirit flights for those interested in exposure and dozens of cocktails both familiar and daring. Always bustling, Canon’s esteemed bartenders pump out specialty cocktails with impossible ease. Seemingly fanciful, Canon executes a whimsical vision with precision and charm. The esteemed whiskey and bitters emporium has been recognized by 16 awards, including a semi-finalist nomination for Outstanding Bar Program four years in a row by the James Beard Foundation Awards. Canon celebrates familiarity with a spin, like a sparkling Negroni — a carbonated combination of gin, sweet vermouth and Campari. Or try one of their five (yes, five) variations on a Manhattan — Bib &


Tucker bourbon, Amer Picon, maraschino, Benedictine, bitters. If that weren’t convincing enough that Canon is a serious place, try the bar nuts: a sweet and salty pleasure of angostura, bourbon, cashews, pretzels and chocolate popcorn.

Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley Seattle Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley has been a Seattle mainstay for more than three decades, serving as the West Coast’s premier jazz club. Stars rotate in and out weekly, mesmerizing the audience. With all seating within 50 feet of the stage, the venue is ideal for experiencing the talent of stars like Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Betty Carter, and Bill Evans, all the while sipping on a cocktail. Since opening in 1979, Jazz Alley has moved locations without losing its following of jazz enthusiasts and bar-goers. The owners’

devotion to smooth entertainment preserves Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley timelessness.

Foreign National Seattle The crew behind Stateside is known for more than just their fantastically crispy duck rolls. Having also opened Foreign National, the neighboring bar, the block has continued to buzz. Holding just 25 seats, the small but vibrant lounge is known for their exciting cocktails and Asian-inspired bar snacks. Inspired by its ‘70s French wallpaper, Foreign National is adorned with a disco ball, shimmering in an otherwise dark atmosphere. So dark, in fact, that the staff aids guests with bronze flashlights. The menu changes seasonally, but favorites like the Madame de Mûre can be enjoyed in perpetuity. The Foreign National team described this drink as, “rich, yet delicate, emphasizing the gentle roundness of Armagnac, the vegetal smoke of Mezcal, the bright tangy flavor of fresh blackberries, and just the smallest tingle of spice from the Togarashi chili.” You in?

The Hideout Seattle Living up to its name, The Hideout is behind a relatively unmarked door on Boren Avenue. The deliciously bizarre space feels rebellious with its mixed wall-to-wall artwork, clever menu, and blacked out windows. The otherwise dark space is lit by a massive chandelier hanging from the ceiling. The menu is broken into three groups of cocktails: “present loves,” “more present loves” and “past loves.” Included is the “Andy Warhol,” The Hideout’s take on a Cosmopolitan, which comes with a Polaroid picture of yourself.

Liberty Seattle Priding themselves on having been open every day since they first welcomed customers in 2002, Liberty is a Capitol Hill neighborhood favorite. The pocket-

sized space on 15th Avenue is packed with frequenters and an impressive liquor collection, including 85 bourbons and ryes and more than 50 tequilas. Liberty’s cocktails are from scratch — fresh squeezed juices are the standard. Somewhat random, but not unwelcome, the kitchen puts out a variety of sushi rolls starting daily at noon. $5 rolls and $1 off all cocktails, beer and wine make it one of the better happy hours in town. The menu is sprawling, with multiple pages thematically dedicated to a specific liquor. If you aren’t sure, the knowledgeable staff will point you in the right direction.

Needle and Thread Seattle Walk through Tavern Law and pick up the vintage phone perched in the back corner. After speaking with someone briefly, the safe-like door will unlock and you’ll be able to climb the stairs to Needle and Thread. The Capitol Hill speakeasy’s mystique is only heightened by the menu (or lack thereof ). Simply tell the expert bartenders your taste preferences, and they’ll whip something up based on your mood. Though the drinks can be spendy, the experience is supremely curated to feel special and worth it. You may see the use of edible flowers, tinctures or herbs, and you’ll absolutely sip from ornate mixmatched glasses. Whether it’s for a creative cocktail and nosh or sultry night cap, Needle and Thread won’t disappoint.

Pennyroyal Seattle Nestled in the downtown Palladian Hotel, Pennyroyal emulates something of a European bar. A self-proclaimed “social salon,” the animated room is bustling, particularly during the post-work rush. While you can find all the classics, like an effervescent French 75 or Manhattan with barrel aged whiskey, Pennyroyal simultaneously features more social offerings with an obsession for quality. Try the Dwayne Elizando Mountain-Dew

Herbert Comacho, made with Copperworks small batch gin, Giffard Crème de Mûre, Campari, Cana’s Feast rose and hibiscus syrup and pineapple for 2-4 people. For the ideal post-work snack, Pennyroyal has a bites menu with truffle parmesan fries and warm olives. Or heck, stay for dinner.

Suite Bellevue Just when you think sipping on a martini  — featuring vodka and housemade lychee syrup — couldn’t get any better, you might look up to see an aerial dancer. That’s right — Bellevue’s esteemed cocktail bar, Suite, has aerial performances starting at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Offering up a contemporary fun atmosphere complete with chandeliers and big booths this local gem makes a perfect date night or night out with a group. Their menu has twists on the classics, like a “Madagascar Manhattan” featuring Makers bourbon, Madagascar vanilla liqueur, sweet vermouth, bitters and brandy-soaked cherries or an “Acai Lemon Drop” with vodka, lemon, triple sec, acai berry liqueur a sugar rim.

The Triple Door Seattle The Triple Door is a wacky place, one we can’t resist. Whether it’s for a burlesque variation of the Nutcracker, concert with dinner by Wild Ginger, or cocktail near the sprawling fish tank, this institution is beloved. Owners Rick and Ann Yoder renovated the space in 2002 with the purpose of creating a, “comfortable space that would connect performers to their audience.” Though as many original touches as possible were preserved, the sound quality has been heightened for a truly euphoric entertainment experience. The wine list is massive, and the cocktails are as playful as the space, giving way to an immersive experience that everyone in Seattle should check out. 

infandel. Big, brambly, full-bodied, and a favorite of many, this oftentimes brash red wine grape is also perfectly capable of producing a more reserved and elegant flavor profile when needed. It’s that versatility that gives “Zin,” as members of its fan club affectionately call it, the ability to pair with a variety of foods and helped it achieve rock-star status as both a stand-alone sipper and what some consider to be the perfect, wintertime adult beverage.

European Origins

It’s been generally accepted that the U.S. version of Zinfandel originated in Croatia as the Crljenak Kastelanski grape. The name, unpronounceable to most Americans, was thankfully introduced here as “Zinfendal” by a Boston nursery owner in 1832. Zinfandel vines were first planted in California in the 1850s during the Gold Rush, and after almost disappearing into obscurity in the 1930s, the grape has stormed back to become the third-mostproduced variety in the state. The Lodi area in central California, the Sierra foothills in Amador County, and Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley are some of the state’s more notable growing areas. Zinfandel also has ties to the Italian grape Primitivo. In 1975, then UC Davis PhD student, Dr. Wade Wolfe, was able to show that the two grapes were genetically identical. U.S. wine labeling regulations now require that Zinfandel and Primitivo be identified separately, endearing the Zinfandel name to domestic wineophiles as a uniquely American descriptor. Today, Zinfandel production has expanded into Washington, and although production is but a fraction of the state’s red grape total, some of Washington’s top wineries currently feature it, including Maryhill Winery in the Columbia Gorge, Prosser’s Thurston Wolfe winery, Hard Row to Hoe Vineyards in Chelan, and Forgeron Cellars in Walla Walla.

Profiles and Food Pairings

Zinfandels carry a broad assortment of characteristics, but are primarily low to medium in acidity and medium to medium-high in tannins. They’re also usually made with a high alcohol content that ranges anywhere from 14 to 16 percent. This can give the wine a bolder, more full-bodied persona that may also come across as “hot” if not kept in check by a good balance of fruit and a mindful winemaker. Peppery, smoky aromatics often predominate, and flavor characteristics include jammy, brambly blackberry and raspberry fruit, black cherry, plum, fig, blueberry, black currant, and star anise. With finishing notes that frequently carry spicy accents of black pepper, clove, and nutmeg, it’s no wonder that Zinfandels result in delicious, crowd-pleasing wines that are sometimes best enjoyed served simply on their own. 50

Written by Dan Radil

When food pairings are considered, the first suggestions that come to mind include beef tenderloin, pork, barbeque ribs, veal, and lamb. Zinfandel can also pair perfectly with roast turkey or chicken, pasta with tomato-based sauces, caramelized vegetables, or even a pepperoni pizza. A blush wine, referred to as white Zinfandel, is also a popular choice with some. Made from the same red grape but with very little skin contact prior to crushing (giving the wine its signature pink color), this sweeter option of Zinfandel might best be served with a glazed, holiday ham or spicy Italian sausage. And Zinfandels made in a late harvest style are also worth seeking out. These wine’s naturally high or fortified alcohol levels are purposefully made with a higher sugar content, allowing them to pair well with many items on the dessert menu such as Black Forest cake, truffles or tiramisu.

Zinfandel Recommendations Thurston Wolfe 2013 Zinfandel (about $20) This Zin earned a silver medal at the 2017 Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival by displaying plenty of delicious, juicy blackberry/ blueberry flavors followed by a finish of toasted hazelnut, sweet cedar and firm tannins. Forgeron Cellars 2014 Zinfandel (about $35) Tasteful from start to finish, this beautifully crafted wine opens with clove and pepper aromatics. Spicy strawberry and blackberry flavors extend into a slightly chocolaty finish with a gentle hint of crème brûlée. Dynasty Cellars 2013 Reserve Zinfandel (about $35) A lovely bouquet of violets and black plum, a base of dark fruit flavors, and a strong finish of toasted oak might make this Zin from the Bellingham-based winery a formidable pairing partner for semisweet chocolate. Plungerhead 2014 Lodi Zinfandel (about $15) This unabashedly over-the-top California Zin is packed with fruitforward blueberry, black cherry and black currant flavors. The sinfully delicious finish suggests brown sugar spice and candied walnuts. Renwood Winery 2015 Fiddletown Zinfandel (about $25) This beautifully balanced Amador County, California Zin features plush black cherry and berry flavors, nuances of black licorice and vanilla on the mid-palate, and gentle smoky accents on a slightly textured finish. Exceptional! Renwood Special Reserve Grandpère Zinfandel (about $49) Blended with 20 percent Petite Sirah and 5 percent Barbera, this exquisite selection exhibits subtle complexities, nice acidity, and supple tannins. Blackberry and ultra-dark plum fruit, an underlying layer of ripe fig, and a whisper of bittersweet chocolate highlight this refined and elegant Zin. 

Written by Hailey Palmer | Photo courtesy of The Triple Door

Adriane Lee of Triple Door shares her experiences and passion for mixology.


driane Lee, 38, didn’t get her start in mixology. She worked in the mental health profession, she says, as a counselor in a residential facility for seven years. An incident that caused her to lose some peripheral vision in one eye prompted her to make a switch. She lives in the lower Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, but is originally from Springfield, Massachusetts. She is currently the bar manager for The Triple Door in downtown Seattle. See What got you interested in mixology? As somebody who enjoys a beverage here and there, I also like to go outside of my comfort zone. For a long time, I was only drinking vodka and tequila and I wanted to broaden that. I did like things like bourbon, scotch, and rum. So, for me, I just mixed around with flavors until I found flavor combinations that would make those particular base liquors more enjoyable for me. Favorite part about mixology? I definitely love the guests’ reaction, especially when they don’t know what they want. I’m like, “Just tell me what you normally drink,” and from there I can just make them something. Seeing them [say] “Oh, this is delicious, this is great. Thank you.’ I enjoy that they came in not knowing what they wanted and they’re super happy about it. What’s it like working at The Triple Door? The Triple Door is amazing. As a live music venue, every night is something different. It could be a jazz musician, to a DJ, to Brazilian singers, or French singers, and anywhere from duos to five-piece bands. 60

There’s always something different. Music brings a lot of people together.

proper measurements. Otherwise the drink isn’t going to be a balanced drink.

What kind of experimentation do you do in your drinks? I’ve had maybe 11 of my cocktails featured on the menu. For a while, if we had too much of a product on the shelf, I would take it upon myself to mess around with that product and put them into a cocktail and get that off of our shelves. That was always fun for me, taking something that most people wouldn’t think to put in a drink and trying to figure out a way to use it.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve had to deal with during your career? Unfortunately, I’ve had to ask a lot of people to remove themselves from the premises. One woman was… undressing in a booth, for whatever reason. It’s really trying to help them remove themselves from the premises without it getting too crazy. I did have someone swing [at] one of my bartenders once, so that’s probably the craziest experience that I’ve had.

What’s your favorite drink you’ve created yourself? That’s a tough one. There’s so many. I think, as somebody who has grown to love bourbon, I was just kind of experimenting and made a drink that was Buffalo Trace [bourbon], apricot liqueur, lemon juice, and simple syrup. It sounds a little bit weird and maybe too sweet, but it was perfectly balanced. You got the heat from the bourbon and the little bit of sweet from the apricot liqueur, and you just got a little bit of tartness from the lemon juice. It all just ended up blending so well together, and it’s just one of those drinks I could sip on like a soda. So it’s actually just a little dangerous, too.

What are your career goals? Right now, I’m kind of settling in as a bar manager. I don’t know if that’s something I want to continue to do because it takes me away from the people, and that’s part of what I love about the job. I like being able to experiment and make cocktails, but I also do enjoy the training aspect of management. I would kind of want a dual role where I could still have that interaction with guests and also take care of making sure the bar runs smoothly.

Is mixology what you thought it would be? It’s actually a lot more. As somebody who grew up and did a lot of cooking and baking with my mom, with cooking being a lot more do-whatever-you-want, and baking being more of an exact science, I find that mixology is a little bit in between the two. You start off saying these are the things I want to start with, but then you have to get

What’s your guilty pleasure drink and why? My guilty pleasure drink would probably be margaritas. They’re kind of my weakness. I tend to sometimes overindulge in those, which is why I try to avoid them. Something about margaritas, I don’t know. It’s the combination of the tequila with the sour. I start sipping on one, I start feeling really good, and then I want to sip on another. It could lead down a very dangerous road. I usually have to limit myself on those. 

Darelle Holden Shares Her Experiences With Tom Jones And Her Love Of Motown


arelle Holden, who grew up in Redmond and lives in Seattle, is the lead singer for 313 Soul, which salutes the music of Motown. Holden’s smooth voice and diverse vocal styling has taken her far in the quarter-century she has been performing. She toured for years with the venerable Tom Jones, backed Stevie Wonder when he played Key Arena in 2014, and has performed with Earth, Wind and Fire, Elton John, jazz guitarist Norman Brown, Bobby Caldwell and Ellis Hall, among others. She appeared in the acclaimed movie about backup singers, “20 Feet from Stardom.” A Berklee College of Music graduate, Holden has music in her blood as a member of a family with deep ties to the Seattle music scene. Her grandfather, Oscar Holden, was an influential jazz musician, and her father, Dave, and uncle, Ron, have a respected place in Seattle entertainment history. How did you get started singing Motown? Motown is just one musical genre I love to sing. I started singing Motown because it is one of the cornerstones of American music and our collective American musical experience. Motown music was recorded by jazz musicians like James Jamerson and Earl Van Dyke, part of the Funk Brothers, and popularized by combining soul, R&B, gospel and pop. This, along with solid songwriting, makes Motown great music. Because I love singing jazz and most all musical genres, it was natural to gravitate toward Motown. It


has all the elements I love blended together and that’s what appeals to me musically. Do you have a Motown artist influencer? There are many but I love Diana Ross and the Supremes. I love Diana’s tone and feel. The mixture of the backgrounds of Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard was great. Back then the backgrounds had a “sound.” Each voice could have character and be unique while still blending. Their (the backgrounds’) sound was more rough while Diana’s was softer. That mixture always intrigues me. What is your fondest memory of touring with Tom Jones and/or Stevie Wonder? I wish I could say I toured with Stevie but I didn’t. I have friends who did but I missed that opportunity. I sang with him when he was in Seattle at Key Arena in 2014 performing the “Songs in the Key of Life” album. Man, all I can say is it was awesome: the band phenomenal, the vocals sublime, including India Arie, whose voice is like butter. It was like being home again. I’d been off the road a while by then so it felt really comfortable. I was on the road with Tom Jones for about 17 years. I loved it. I loved the lifestyle, I loved making music on a high level every night. I liked the people I worked with and I liked turning the audience’s mind around. Those people who were not aware of Tom’s soul, tone, feel and innate funkiness would be surprised at how hip he was and how funky the band was. That was a joy.

Tell us about the Academy Award-winning documentary “20 Feet from Stardom.” This is a movie that celebrates the “background singer” as an integral part of music. We hear and love music but often don’t recognize the important elements involved in making the “sound” of a particular song or piece of music. One of the most important elements of popular music has always been the background singers’ part. The movie celebrates our (background singers) contribution and hard work and for that I am glad. What is on the horizon? I’m in a phase of growth and improvement. I am learning more and more about my instrument and looking to continue to sing and perform. There is still a lot I want to accomplish, recording and writing. I’d love to work with an orchestra and big band, I’d like to hear myself on the radio (smile). So much to do. What is your favorite place to eat in the Seattle | Bellevue area? There are so many great places in Seattle and Bellevue. I have to say I love Bake’s Place in Bellevue. I love the food, I love the venue and I love the staff. They have a really great thing going on there. Upcoming Shows 
