Executive chef Josh Henderson is set to oversee the culinary direction of Thompson Seattle, including Scout, the property’s signature restaurant, as well as The Nest, a scenic rooftop bar and lounge. Henderson and his team will also design an interactive in-room dining experience and a food and beverage program tailored for groups and weddings.
“Chef Henderson and Huxley Wallace Collective have an incredible reputation for developing stunning spaces and approachable and adventurous dining experiences,” said Commune Hotels & Resorts CEO Niki Leondakis.”We’re excited about the collaboration and look forward to revealing our culinary plans for Thompson Seattle to locals and travelers.”
Scout at Thompson Seattle will “embody the backbone, beauty and spirit of the area with a whimsical, yet smart design." The restaurant will be offer an oversized chef's table, which will serve multi-course, highly local food and will have a modern, glass-encased private dining room, The Cabin, which will comfortably seat groups up to 20 affording views of Pike’s Peak.
The Nest will offer views of Puget Sound as well as the Olympic Mountain Range, and serve small shareable plates and cocktails designed to foster social interaction in a communal setting. Both Scout and The Nest will aim to create a more intimate connection between guests and the kitchen.
