tazza doro HEARTS Dinette!
Most of you know that one of my most favorite restaurants and chefs, is Sonja Finn, owner of Dinette, located in East Liberty…second level of Eastside. Well I have rad news to share – Sonja has been nominated for Food and Wine’s People’s Best New Chef. I’m asking you guys to go to the web site and vote for Sonja (it literally takes a freaking second) CLICK HERE. In 2009 and 2010, Sonja was also a semi-finalist for the James Beard Award for “Best rising star chef”…she ain’t no joke!!! If you’ve been to Dinette you will know Sonja’s food is stunning, fresh, local and delicious. Her restaurant space is rad! For those who haven’t been to Dinette – get there, ASAP!
I feel like I’ve known Sonja forever but it’s only been a few short years. Sonja has become a good friend and great customer of tazza doro. We spend a lot of time talking about our businesses, tasting wines, talking coffee and sharing lots and lots of ideas. I am proud to know Sonja and proud she has created such a great space in Pittsburgh and the East End for sharing amazing food and making us a national presence for the culinary arts!!!! Congrats Sonja! Now go VOTE!
