Chef Dan Ratigan
Originally from upstate New York, Dan Ratigan arrived in the Pacific Northwest at age 14 and worked his way up through many of Seattle’s finest restaurants before taking the helm at The Fireside Restaurant in 2007. Since then Chef Dan has worked to create seasonal menus that feature Northwest gastronomy at its best. Dan’s approach is simple. Start with top-notch ingredients, prepare them carefully and send them out of the kitchen in meals that showcase the best the ingredients have to offer.
