View Job Description

American, Northwestern

Fine Dining, Upscale Casual

Birdsong is a fine dining restaurant focused on the ingredients and cooking methods of the Pacific Northwest. Executive Chef and Owner Chris Bleidorn (whose previous experience includes Saison, Atelier Crenn, Benu and Alinea) will pay homage to cooking techniques of the past, with a playfully refined and thoughtful menu that highlights the connection between city and nature.

Birdsong will reference ancient cooking methods: utilizing open fire and smoke, dry-aging meat, and experimenting with a number of fermenting techniques. Dishes will highlight key ingredients like cold water shellfish, wild game (like elk, buffalo, boar), berries, mushrooms, and other seasonal ingredients. Birdsong’s quest to preserve fundamental cooking techniques of the past in a contemporary setting is inspired by naturalist writer Michael Frome’s sentiment that “each succeeding generation accepts less and less of the real thing because it has no way of understanding what has been lost.”
