Husband and wife chef duo Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi met while cooking at New York’s illustrious Alain Ducasse at the Essex House. While both chefs have a distinctly different point of view, their tastes blend together to create modern, creative and seamless cuisine in their restaurants, Joule and Revel. Rachel’s Korean heritage informs her flavors through her impeccable training in classic French technique. Seif, raised in Chicago, and trained in Portland, Ore. brings a distinctly American flavor to the palate, balancing and complementing his wife both in the kitchen and at home.Rachel and Seif’s partners in Revel and Quoin are three of Seattle’s most innovative and creative developers, Chad Dale, Bryce Philips (founder of ski and snowboard retailer, EVO), and Ira Gerlich. All three are also partners in the Kolstrand Bulding, a recently renovated historic commercial building in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. Chad, Bryce and Ira’s projects re-imagine former industrial buildings into welcoming and innovative spaces using glass, metal, wood and other materials in unexpected and brilliant ways.
