CHEF BIO

Brian "Mad Dog" Madayag  is passionate about his Filipino heritage and has been known for routinely adding Filipino influences into his dishes. His childhood years were spent growing up in Edmonds with favorite pastimes of martial arts, motorsports and fishing all around the Pacific Northwest.

 

Mad Dog started his career in restaurants at Siam on Lake Union, the pioneer of thai cuisine in Seattle, where he learned every position in the front of the house. Brian then spent some years managing and tending bar at many establishments around downtown Seattle including the Pan Pacific Hotel, the Dahlia Lounge, Seatown Seabar and fist pumping venues such as Venom, Amber, and Volume Night Clubs.

 

Influenced by his lineage and dedication to culinary arts, Brian decided to take the next step and create his visions into reality. With support from his beloved family members and friends he pursued his culinary arts degree at Seattle Culinary Academy.

He then began his career with Tom Douglas restaurants. Where he worked all the positions in the back of the house spanning over a decade. He "paid his dues" to work his way up to earn the title of executive chef. After all the many years of learning and growing within the industry he finally decided to step out of his comfort zone and into his own restaurant. 

Brian continues to reside in Edmonds, married to his beautiful wife, Crystal, son Maverick and furry companion, Lola. Just living his dream.
