Sonia Finn from Dinette in Pittsburgh is up for Best new Chef for Food and Wine Magazine. Please vote for Sonia. She has something really great going on in East Liberty. If you haven't tried Dinette, I would recommend giving it a shot.

    Okay, I voted for her. LMK if Martin and Sandra are hosting a victory dinner.

      Awesome, I've loved all my visits to Dinette. I wrote a review about my first visit which I sent to serious eats.

      question for China - would you happen to be China Millman?

      Further, have any of you met Sonia Finn? I've spoken to many Chef's but never gotten to speak to her in person. She's always seemed a bit cold via Email, I'm hoping this doesn't carry over to face to face interaction.

        Rodzilla, you are not the first person to ask if I am China Millman...no I am not. I have talked to Sonia many times while eating at the bar. She is a very soft spoken woman but friendly. She seems a bit modest too. I get a good vibe from her. Thinking about Dinette...now I want to go eat there...

        Ha ha! Unfortunately my very good friends moved to Kentucky!! It will be a long drive but they may be in : )

          Good to know, Chinacat. I feel much better about giving my business and praise to the establishment.
