Pregnant with anticipation? JUNO is set to deliver

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.


Hotel guests — and the rest of us — can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner — as well as a “Tastes” menu (with Snake River Beef and lamb sliders, natch), and another featuring “Dessert Bites.” Tastes and Bites will also be available in the Art Deco-inspired Polar Bar, where you can lift a cold one or such classic cocktails as a Harvey Wallbanger . (Remember those tall tapered bottles of Galliano? Well congrats: You’re even older than I am!)
