 Respected Seattle Chefs To Come To Nordstrom Restaurants In Midtown New York City

Nordstrom’s seven-story New York City store is set to be the sight of restaurants operated by two well-known chefs from Seattle – Tom Douglas and Ethan Stowell.

The Midtown site is slated to open in October.

Both chefs have made their mark in Seattle and are now coming to the Manhattan areas to run and operate the new store Nordstrom has dubbed its flagship. The Midtown Nordstrom will have six bars and restaurants, more than other stores currently in operation.

Stowell will be in charge of the Wolf, which pays respect to Seattle’s How To Cook A Wolf restaurant. Douglas will run Jeannie’s a pizza shop, and Hani Pacific. Douglas has run the James Beard award three times and runs numerous restaurants in Washington state.

Stowell will be using Pacific Northwest Ingredients for his Italian dishes such as polenta fritters and other plates. Even when Nordstrom’s closes down for the night, the restaurant will stay open.

Jeannie’s is also focused on Italian dishes such as pizza and pasta but is regarded as a casual break for shoppers needing to satisfy their hunger. The Hani Pacific restaurant will feature Pacific Rim foods such as red chile pork ramen and caramelized coconut chicken.

Three other restaurants going into Nordstrom’s include Bistro Verde, Broadway Bar and Shoe Bar. The Wolf restaurant can be found on the third floor, and Hani Pacific and Jeannie’s will be on the store’s lower level. Broadway Bar is set for the second floor while Bistro Verde will be located on the fifth floor.

The Midtown location is set to open Oct. 24.
