James Beard Award-winning Chef Jason Wilson’s broad range of culinary abilities centers upon sourcing the highest quality, seasonal ingredients from Northwest and American farmers, producers and fishermen.
From inception, Jason reflected on the history of the area in bringing The Lakehouse vision to life. He aimed to build a place that is comfortable, yet elegant; familiar, yet sophisticated. Ultimately, one that will feel like a respite, a home, for guests, where he and his team put forth delicious, distinct craft cooking. To him, The Lakehouse is about the artisan experience, from the ceramics on which the food is served, to the art on the walls, and the people creating the food and drinks. With a hand in every aspect of the concept, The Lakehouse is Chef Jason’s interpretation of a Northwest farmhouse.
In addition to The Lakehouse, Jason’s entrepreneurial spirit is evident in such endeavors as modern speakeasy inspired Civility & Unrest, the thriving Miller’s Guild in downtown Seattle, the former, critically-acclaimed Crush, as executive chef and product developer for Coffee Flour, the next global superfood and global impact food, and much more.
