Mirna and John Attar, Brenda Braxton, Gov. Vic Atiyeh, John, Amanda Fritz, Gov. Atiyeh's backgammon cake
WORLD OF WONDER: To celebrate the grand opening of the brand new World Foods at Everett owners Mirna and John Attar (they also own Barbur World Foods) kicked off with an invitation-only party and media preview before opening to the public.
The evening was a buffet of delicious offerings prepared by Chef/Owner of Ya Hala Lebanese Cuisine, Mirna, and World Foods Chef, Brandon Riesgaard. Favorite beers and wines from their extensive selection was also on hand as well as a very sip-worthy Scotch station. Yes, a scotch station. Live music was provided by Djangophiles and a donation was made to Children’s Relief Nursery of LifeWorks NW on behalf of all attendees.
It was also a celebration of Gov. Vic Atiyeh's birthday (who was presented a cake in the shape of a backgammon game) and a chance to hang out with early morning news anchors Pete Ferryman and Brenda Braxton and other fabulous guests.
The incredibly gracious hosts spared no expense to take care of their guests, and it was a treat to see inside what is sure to be one of the Pearl District's most happening hang-outs that is sure to be Portland's version of Zabar's meets Dean & DeLuca.
