Video Interlude


At last night's 2014 James Beard Awards, McMinnville's 37-year-old Nick's Italian Cafe was officially presented the America's Classics Award, doled to restaurants "that have timeless appeal." Nick's pre-induction video is available to view online: In it, founder Nick Peirano talks about the challenges of opening a restaurant when there were just six wineries in the Willamette Valley. (Also, watch closely for a cameo by Portland Monthly's Karen Brooks.) [YouTube]
