Doug Guiberson, Maitre D’

For 25 years, Doug Guiberson was the face of the front door at Canlis. His memory for people and his gracious ability as the perfect host marked him as the most important person in the city to know on a first name basis. “Doug will get me in” was the hope and prayer that well-heeled Seattleites relied on to gain access to a coveted table on an impossibly full night. Almost always their prayers were answered, and Doug found a way to not just get them in but to bring them back again and again.
