Westward and Little Gull Bar

Seattle, WA

Westward was a beautiful project that Josh and matt embarked on in 2012. The idea was to be a place that was quirky yet took the food very seriously. Inspired by the Wes Anderson film Life Aquatic, there various references to the film in the space, but overall the inspiration was in the spirit of and not a literal rendering. The restaurant one numerous award and accolades, and has become an institution in the city.

Noroeste

Seattle, WA

This little bar was short-lived but was a space that was sexy and dark and a little bit rock n roll, but also was fanatically focused on producing beautiful tacos. Our inspiration for the facade was from the Parker Hotel in palm springs, and our inspiration for the food was a new take on Mexican cuisine through the lens of the pnw.

Great State Burger

Multiple Locations

Our approach with the great state was a growth model that we could replicate. We ended up opening 5 stores in the Seattle market as well as a couple in stadiums. The goal was to be as organic as possible in our ingredients while also focusing on value. The design and identity were focused on being fun, a tiny bit nostalgic, while not being cliche around the idea of the roadside burger stand.

Vestal

Vestal was our foray into a more fine dining approach. We created a very warm space with lots of wood and beautiful textures, and it all was centered by a wood-burning hearth in which we did most of the cooking. It quickly became some of the best work we had ever done in food and design.

Scout Restaurant, Thompson Hotel

Seattle, WA

We collaborated with the Thompson hotel group to create a restaurant that evoked the pacific northwest, while at the same time speaking to the young and progressive identity of the Thompson Hotel Group. The food was progressive northwest, with always nodding to being a hotel restaurant the served three meals a day for a guest that could be from anywhere in the world.

Cantine Bar

Seattle, WA

Cantine was a small beer bar with over 40 taps, that had a beautifully curated beer list and grilled hot dog sandwiches. We tried to create a space that felt a little bit like an old 1970's basement..

Poulet Galore

South Lake Union and Ballard, WA

A small little walk-up window that served rotisserie chicken was the driving force behind this concept. We wanted it to evoke a bit of a french style or feel along with a fast-casual approach. Opening in Ballard in 2019.

Saint Helens

Ravenna, Seattle

Inspired by the bistro approach, however wanting it to feel delicate as well as classic, we created Saint Helens. Was a focus on small plates, and all-day service, and classic bistro dishes such as salad nicoise or cassoulet. Located in the Ravenna neighborhood of Seattle, it has become a go-to for the neighborhood to have a glass of rose and frites.
