Owen Price Nelson: baby on board


"Appetizers" sends a happy one-week birthday to Owen Price Nelson, the newest member of the Selland restaurant family. Owen's dad, Josh Nelson, is the general manager for Ella Dining Room and Bar, while mother Gina formerly managed the Kitchen. Baby Owen was born at 6:31 a.m. on Nov. 4, weighing 6 lbs. 9 ounces. Owen shares a middle name with Randall Selland, Josh's stepdad and executive chef at the Kitchen.

"It's been a good week," says Josh Nelson. "Mom's doing great and I'm definitely enjoying the time at home."

Could a restaurant named "Owen Dining Room and Bar" be next? Ella, after all, was named after Selland's granddaughter.

"I'm thinking more like 'Opie's Sandwich Shop,' or something simpler," says Josh, with a chuckle.

Either way, best wishes to the new family ...
