Enough about the movie. What about that other JUNO? The overdue restaurant in the historic Arctic Building makes its debut tomorrow in Pioneer Square, following the July 9 opening of the royally reenvisioned Arctic Club Hotel.
GM and executive chef Thomas Kollasch (late of the Alderbrook Resort and Spa in Union, WA) will hie to the seasons with a Contemporary American menu. His crew includes chef Alex Nemeth (photo, center), whose resume (Waters, Bandoleone, Brie & Bordeaux) is rife with local color -- including a recent gig as chef-exec at Purple Cafe and Wine Bar. On board as manager/sommelier is Aaron Angelo (at right), whose able ministrations I much appreciated at the Steelhead Diner.
