We initially got connected with Aimee after Heather, our Director Of Events, met Aimee’s mom at a wine bar in NYC back in 2014 and shared a bowl of popcorn. Leading up to The Infatuation Seattle launch in 2017, Aimee popped back up and proved herself to be the perfect person for the job. Aimee previously worked in TV production, and plays the piano, trumpet, and something called the euphonium which she is still trying to convince us is a real thing.
We spent the year looking for the best new restaurants across Seattle. This is where you’ll find them.
