In one minute, at 11 a.m. P.S.T., Canlis is holding what their P.R. firm is billing as a momentous press conference. Take it away, press release:
CANLIS RESTAURANT TO HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE
SEATTLE – Oct. 22, 2008 – In its 58-year Seattle history, Canlis Restaurant has been no stranger to being credited with “firsts”: team-style service, designing an open kitchen, pioneering what has become Northwest cuisine. Now, in a bold statement about how much the restaurant has evolved and its envisioned future, the Canlis family is holding its first-ever press conference to share momentous news.
You are cordially invited to join brothers Mark and Brian Canlis for this event….
They offered to fetch me by car service (thanks, guys!), but I can’t make it. But will there be a live webcast? Yes, indeed! Take it away, live webcast:
UPDATE: Apparently they got a new chef, Jason Franey, the executive sous chef from Eleven Madison Park in New York (Frank Bruni on that place here). If only you could live webcast free champagne.
