For decades the PNW has been inspired by the flavors of the world.
It's time we return the favor.

We are dedicated to the communities and the people that make up the Pacific Northwest. As such, we work tirelessly to source locally grown and raised meats, fruits and vegetables whenever possible through our personal connections to the markets and farmers themselves.

Our signature seasonal farm menus incorporate the best of the Pacific Northwest growing seasons. Procuring these ingredients directly from local farmers and producers allows us to create delicious rustic cuisine which honors the wonderful quality of the products.

When diners seek the best farm-to-table dining experiences, local & seasonal ingredients drive the menu, delivering the best quality food. This is the same approach we wish to take with our signature seasonal menus, and is a novel approach to event catering.

Please be aware that this spontaneous spirit means that the exact details of your event’s menu might not be available for tastings if out of season, and as ever, are subject to the actual growing season.


Signature Menus

When creating signature menus, you will begin with a meeting with our Executive Chef. Guests will discuss what sort of preparations are available for their event, things they prefer to eat - and even ones they don'r! This will yield a custom menu for your event, and will be sure to delight the palates of your guests.
