Chef Aaron Wright has compiled an impressive resume. His first head-chef job was at Canlis restaurant, hailed as Seattle’s most exclusive eatery. 

More recently, he won accolades for his dishes at the Tavern at Lark Creek. 

Aaron’s passion for food started early, tending to family gardens in preparation of evening meals. That practice helped craft both his love of fresh, home-cooked food and the industry that surrounds it. 

With over 25 years in the kitchen, Chef Aaron’s success can be attributed, not only to his extensive knowledge about seasonal and sustainable foods, but also to his leadership. Motivated by his desire to learn, teach and grow, Aaron challenges his culinary staff by designing innovative dishes while stressing the importance of sourcing local food and pairing with great wines.
