Not content with his dual degrees in business and sports management, Chef Edouardo Jordan decided to enrol in culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu which then led to him working in renowned restaurants such as The French Laundry and Per Se. He now owns and runs three restaurants in Seattle: Salare, JuneBaby, and Lucinda Grain Bar. Each has their own set of accolades, including Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chef and Eater Best New Restaurant in 2016 for Salare, and One of the World's Greatest Places by Time, and a three-star New York Times review for JuneBaby. In 2018, Chef Edouardo won two of the prestigious James Beard Awards for Best Chef Northwest for Salare, and Best New Restaurant for JuneBaby. Chef Edouardo’s food covers everything from French and Italian cuisine from his classical training, to his highly personal and educational Southern cuisine, the food of his roots.
Chef Edouardo joins Boulcott Street Bistro for this collaboration. Kick your day off with ‘Moonshine Time’ as you arrive with drinks and finger food from Chef Edouardo’s Lucinda Grain Bar. Enjoy a shared four-course meal, celebrating and exploring Chef Edouardo’s African-American and Chef Rex’s Māori cultural heritage, with dishes inspired by each. As the meal progresses the lines blur and you’ll find a delicious fusion of the two.
