Yesterday in Seattle
250 real estate pros joined us 24 hours ago at the Triple Door music venue for Bisnow's Seattle Restaurant Development Summit to hear top restaurateurs and developers (and a top architect, broker, and lawyer) describe and debate the trends and needs are of the industry. But all agreed the dining scene is infusing huge new life into urban Seattle and helping create or revitalize whole new neighborhoods.
On hand: celebrity chefs and restaurateurs Tom Douglas, Matt Dillon, Renee Erickson, Thierry Rautureau, Ethan Stowell, and Rick Yoder. Also, restaurant developers Matt Griffin and Patrick Foley, restaurant broker Laura Miller of Gibraltar, restaurant lawyer Sandip Soli of Cairncross Hempelmann, architect and NBBJ chief Scott Wyatt, and Washington State Restaurant Association CEO Anthony Anton.
