Artistic Collaboration: Chef Jason Wilson Brings Authentic Craft-Cooking to Teatro ZinZanni


 

 

Opening The Lakehouse has always been a dream of mine. From concept to design, it has fulfilled many of my career goals and personal aspirations. As a chef, it’s those aspirations that keep growing and evolving, sometimes daily. Now, it has brought me to a place where quality, innovation and authenticity meet on a different kind of stage – at Teatro ZinZanni.

One of the most genuine and artistic organizations in Western Washington, Teatro ZinZanni returns tomorrow, October 19, for the first time on the Eastside. The vibrant, farm-inspired craft-cooking of The Lakehouse will accompany the theatrics and entertainment under the spiegelent with Love, Chaos and Dinner at Marymoor Park.

 

 

The opportunity to work with Teatzo ZinZanni and design the menu, was forged from a shared, genuine love of craft and art, from the talented and creative cast and players to the interpretation and innovation of the food.

When developing the menu under the famous spiegelent, I wanted to stick to the root of how I approach my cooking at The Lakehouse – local, seasonal, craft-cooking. The dishes will work symbiotically with the playfulness of the show, allowing everyone who attends to experience the show and lose themselves in the performance, while enjoying a delicious, authentic dinner, with a few surprises along the way.

 

 

I look forward to welcoming theater-enthusiasts to this artistic collaboration and bringing The Lakehouse’s vibrant, farm-inspired craft-cooking to the thrilling, breathtaking performances for the next six months.

– Jason

Vibrant, Farm-Inspired Craft Cooking Extends to Weekend Brunch


The Lakehouse opened just over three-months ago based on the history of Bellevue and the farmer relationships that we’ve procured over the years. Now we’ve translated our vibrant, farm-inspired craft cooking into weekend brunch, starting tomorrow! True to our core, the dishes we serve at brunch will be a reflection of The Lakehouse’s continued dedication to utilizing local, farm-fresh ingredients from our dedicated purveyors, including Lazy B Ranch, Mad Hatcher Farms, Frog Hollow Farms, and global superfood Coffee Flour and more.

“From the Orchard,” “Sounds, Seas and Rivers,” and “Fields and Farms” keeps the focus on the ingredients, assembled in dishes that we hope will bring a leisurely, enjoyable and delicious weekend morning.

Created from a desire to play with different textures and flavors, and twists on classic breakfast items, the menu includes our bold Cocoa Coffee Flour Pancakes with blueberries and yogurt, walnuts, and sticky toffee (full of protein, antioxidants, and more, thanks to the plant-based Coffee Flour); and the decadent Buttermilk Beecher’s Cheddar Waffle, melons and chile, bacon, arugula, and fried egg. Or steer towards lunch with Shrimp N Grits with spot prawns, anson mills grits, tomato chutney, peppers and grilled onions; or the Grilled Albacore Tuna “Steak,” with summer squash & garden bean salad, hens egg, heirloom tomato, black olive tapenade — a celebration of the abundance of local fresh ingredients, and a clean, simple technique, that allows the rich flavors of each ingredient to shine through.

Even with some of our guests’ favorites on the menu, including our signature Grilled Octopus, Palouse Sweet Corn Soup, and Lakehouse Wagyu Beef Burger, brunch wouldn’t be brunch without a variety of cocktails! It’s all about sharing and socializing with Mimosas to Share – choose from the classic orange juice, or try pom-cran or grapefruit-elderflower. Create Your Own Bloody Mary, or indulge in the Coffee Flour Chocolate Cherry Martini!

We invite you into our home for a great start to your weekend.

-The Lakehouse team

Weekend Brunch: Starting tomorrow, September 30, 7 a.m, – 4 p.m.

 

 

 

Opening June 15th


I’m excited to finally share the opening of my two new places, The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest, both opening on two separate floors of the new W Bellevue hotel on June 15! What started two years ago is finally coming to fruition. The process of creating each place has not only been a wonderful experience, but one that has required a lot of time and focus on details, which is now resulting in a lifelong dream.

 

The inspiration involved in these two projects stemmed from the history of Bellevue, and what I see as cooking to a sense of place – cooking to Bellevue and a history of simple beginnings, growing into the booming metropolis that it is today. From concept to design, menu to uniforms, ingredient sourcing to hiring, and everything in between, these projects have become a part of my daily life, one that I welcome with full passion.

 

My interpretation of a northwest farmhouse has resulted in produce-driven craft cooking at The Lakehouse. The vibrant, farm-inspired menu is one that I’ve labored over, thought through day and night, changed, and changed back, and continue to evolve.

Civility & Unrest is speakeasy-inspired. Hidden within the W Bellevue, it’s a place for fun, excitement and discovery, while enjoying serious craft cocktails, flowing champagnes and sparkling wines.

 

 

I look forward to sharing more about each of these places in the coming weeks, and to welcoming you through the doors come June 15.
