The retail giant Amazon.com opened a new convenience store to the public here on Monday with none of the hurdles of a traditional supermarket: At Amazon Go, there are no cashiers, shopping carts or checkout lines to slow shoppers down.

But there’s a trade-off. In this store, the shoppers are on display too, tracked by hundreds of cameras and sensors from the first swipe of their phone to their last step out the door.

The futuristic grab-and-go market represents a test of new technology that could soon spread nationwide, as Amazon and other grocery giants seek to win business from shoppers craving selection, ease and speed.

“The number one problem for people is time poverty,” said Dilip Kumar, vice president of technology for Amazon Go, while standing in the store during its grand public opening. “People want good food fast and they want it to be convenient.”

JuneBaby, a black-owned restaurant that serves southern-style cuisine in the Pacific Northwest city of Seattle has been named the 2018 Best New Restaurant by the James Beard Foundation.

Chef Edouardo Jordan accepted the award during a ceremony Monday at the Lyric Opera House in Chicago. Jordan also was named best chef in the Northwest.

The award honors a restaurant that opens in the calendar year before the award is given that already displays “excellence in food, beverage and service, and that is likely to make an impact in the years to come.” JuneBaby, his father’s nickname, opened last year.

JuneBaby advertises its menu as food with roots. Breads include buttermilk biscuits. Main dishes include chicken fried steak, fried catfish and spring greens. Desserts include pecan pie ice cream sandwiches and chocolate banana rum cake.

The restaurant acknowledges that Southern cooking is not held in high regard by some.

“Southern cuisine has always had and continues to have stereotypical connotations.

It is a cuisine to be respected and celebrated,” Jordan wrote.
