One can expect to find a collection of ideas, ingredients, concoctions and dishes, all harmoniously composed for one to consume and enjoy while dining with us here. There really is no limit to what is obtainable, only the need for time, desire and wallet. Our cooks are at the ready...our service team at attention and me at the helm with much anticipation, commitment and passion in which to release the demons from within. I am not speaking freakin crazy and stupid, but more-so calculated, imagined, created and crafted from whims brewed earlier that day. I don't like to think about it earlier than a few hours ahead though. Sometimes, I will give our cooks a bit of heads up, but I like to keep them on edge. Someday, they might even come to appreciate that...hopefully! They rock! They really are great. Best kitchen ever. The summer season here in Seattle has been very good to us and is creating for a very wonderful palette and toy box to paint from and play with. It is crazy that with all the things going on in my life that things actually come to fruition as they do, and sometimes even better than I had anticipated or dreamed of. The dishes can take a life form of their own right in front of me. Cool shit. Here is a gathering of last week's collection...good thing I have a plethora of  inspiration...
