Tom wins Outstanding Restaurateur at James Beard Awards!!

We won! We won! We won! We won!! FINALLY!!

Congrats, Tom!  Congrats, Jackie!  Congrats, ET !  Congrats, Pamela!  Congrats to all of us at TDR!!


Tom didn’t want to jinx his chances, so he stayed away from the awards event (though he was in NYC.)  Eric Tanaka, TDR executive chef and partner, accepted the award for Outstanding Restaurateur with a short, sweet speech, thanking Tom for his deliciousness and Jackie for her graciousness. That says it all, doesn’t it?  We expect the team to be coming back from NYC with mighty BIG HANGOVERS!

Check out this report from the Seattle Times on Tom’s big win.

Congrats also to Matt Dillon on winning Best Chef NW!  Here are all the James Beard winners.
