Back in 2009, when Adoni Aduriz protégé Matt Lightner was hired to run this kitchen, Castagna turned into one of the dining community’s brightest lights. But Lightner has now departed (he is about to open Atera in New York City), leaving his former second in command, Justin Woodward, in his place. Woodward, who also worked with Alex Stupak at WD-50, has continued the blend of Modernist cooking and Pacific Northwest foraging that began under Lightner’s tenure, and his menus are filled with creations like, Cauliflower in various textures and Sea and Mountains and Earth: Petrale sole, Black Trumpet Mushrooms and Salsify. It is still, "the most innovative (yet delicious) food in the Pacific Northwest" and remains “a must visit for those whose view the dining experience through a progressive lens.”
