A Seattle restaurant was just named one of the top 12 best in the world – which means, good luck getting a reservation at Communion in the Central District.

An idea four years in the making came to life in December of last year.

“I don’t like the word fusion, but I guess I can use it in this sense. We’re definitely infusing a lot of cultural aspects into the cuisine, but it’s still us, you feel me. This is how I grew up,” said Damon Bomar.

Chef Kristi Brown and her son Bomar wanted to create a space where people felt at home while enjoying a bit of Seattle soul.

“It’s a place where we just wanted to see our dreams realized,” said Bomar.

The food experience has caught on globally. Condé Nast Traveler named Communion one of the top 12 best new restaurants in the world.

“That’s huge. That’s huge. Honestly, I think we’re still processing it,” said Bomar.
