Mark and Brian Canlis with Nelson Daquip
By Billy Harris
According to the Canlis website, "Nelson Daquip has been the most rapidly promoted employee in Canlis' history, rising from server assistant, to server, to assistant sommelier, to wine director in only four years." Deservedly so, Billy found out, while touring the Canlis wine cellar with Nelson. He helped Billy pick out a wine to sip with Canlis owners, Mark and Brian Canlis, while they laid down the history of this iconic Seattle restaurant.
