Chef Daniel Carr: In 2013, the Washington Wine Commission honored us as Restaurant of the Year. And this past March, I was invited by the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers to be their honorary guest chef at their Tri-Cities annual convention. We prepared a five-course dinner with capicola, prepared and sliced like osso bucco, served with risotto. That was one of the highlights of my career.
