A Seattle Culinary Icon in The Fremont Collective
Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi opened their first restaurant, Joule, to critical acclaim in 2007. The food—a confident, beautiful blend of Korean flavors and classic technique—earned them a reputation as culinary innovators and creative forces. In 2013, they reimagined Joule as a contemporary Korean steakhouse serving nontraditional cuts of beef, and reopened it in an expanded space. The same year, it was named one of the Best New Restaurants in America by Bon Appétit magazine.
