NATIVE SPIRIT AND FLAVOR ARE ALL IN THE FAM
The 405 diningscape continues to grow despite the pandemic, including a couple of spots in the spectacular new First Americans Museum, 659 First Americans Blvd. • Dropped by last week for lunch with Native chef consultant Loretta Barrett Oden, extra noshing support provided by Elise Fischbein. • We met at 39 Restaurant, the sleek, warm new restaurant with abounding river views, on the south side of the museum. Named for the 39 federally recognized tribes, it’s clear this space will be a destination venue for the foreseeable future. • The FAM held its grand opening a few weeks ago, but dining service today is only a preview of what’s to come.
