[[m:####Fraiche Contemporary French
Profiled in Pacific Northwest Inlander for his hardworking enthusiasm and fine-tuned recipes, Fraiche Contemporary French’s executive chef, Jason Rex, presides over a sizable kitchen that pulls double duty for two different eateries. Rex and a staff of more than 40 employees and sous-chefs simultaneously dole out dishes for both Fraiche and the neighboring Rex’s Burgers & Brew. Chef Rex joined foodie forces with Fraiche’s coowner Connie Naccarato to delight Francophiles with seasonally rotating entrees that showcase methodically prepared, locally sourced ingredients and gourmet morsels such as foie gras, truffle, and duck confit. During the inviting Tuesday–Saturday dinner service, candles rest on white tablecloths as the knowledgeable wait staff offers wine recommendations to help American diners conquer the French menu like Napoleon conquered his fear of fast-food drive-thrus.
