Another Ethan Stowell restaurant, coming to a neighborhood near you?

Ethan Stowell used to be known for downtown dining. Remember upscale Union, his first “outstanding” urban restaurant? Tavolata, his second, still drawing customers nightly to Belltown?

Food & Wine’s Magazine’s Best New Chefs of 2013 grace the cover of the July issue (on newsstands now). No Seattle chef made the cut this year but look inside: Ethan Stowell was named a “Best New Chef All-Star.”

To celebrate 25 years of “Best New Chef” honorees, the editors chose one from each year for the All-Star roster. Stowell (Class of 2008) joins a group that includes such culinary luminaries as Thomas Keller (1988), Tom Colicchio (1991), Grant Achatz (2002) and David Chang (2006).

Stowell’s reaction to being one of the 25: “There are some pretty sweet dudes on that list. These are my idols. I looked up to all those guys.”

When he was named a “Best New Chef” he was almost 35 and had just opened his second and third restaurants, Tavolata and How to Cook a Wolf.  “I definitely didn’t feel like a new chef then.”
