Outstanding! After nine consecutive near-misses, Highlands Bar and Grill has finally won the James Beard award for Outstanding Restaurant! As an incredible bonus, Pastry chef Dolester Miles also won for Outstanding Pastry Chef. I've photographed Frank and Pardis Stitt over the years and have always been impressed with not only Highlands, but Bottega and Chez Fon Fon.
Congratulations to the whole crew at Highlands!
Above is Chef Stitt in a portrait I made for Billy Reid, and below is a portrait of Dolester Miles recently made for the restaurant.
