Building Industry Association honors local restaurants

Feast at 316 and Miss Nola's Cafe receive 'Best Presentation' and 'Best Overall' recognition

The owners of Feast at 316 and Miss Nola’s Cafe are two-time recipients of awards from the Building Industry Association of Clark County.

Tim and Melissa McCusker received “Best Presentation” and “Best Overall” honors, as participants in “Chef, Hop & Vine.” Feast at 316 was honored in the same two categories last year.

This year’s event, held in April at six homes in Camas and East Vancouver, kicked off the NW Natural New Homes Tour presented by DeWils.

Other Chef, Hop & Vine honorees this year included N.W. Natural and Burnt Bridge Cellars (“Best Pairing”), Burnt Bridge Cellars (“Best Wine”), Fortside Brewing Company (“Best Brew”), and Mill Creek Pub (“Most Creative”).

The Chef, Hop & Vine featured area chefs paired with brews or wines. The event raised more than $3,500 for “Office Moms & Dads,” an organization that serves foster children.

Four houses in Camas were among the 15 homes featured in the new homes tour. Honorees included Glavin Homes (Hidden Terrace “Best Kitchen), Pacific Lifestyle Homes (Stonebriar “Most Livable Floor Plan”), Pahlisch Homes (Lake Hills “Best Interior Design”) and Cascade West Development (Summit at Columbia Vista “Best of Show).

A.C.T. Builders, LLC, of Vancouver, was honored for its participation in the Columbia Credit Union Remodeled Homes Tour, presented by CFM and DeWils. A.C.T. received awards for its work on the Marvin residence (“Best Overall Project” and “Best Transformation”) and the Gilligan Residence (“Best Kitchen”).
