Summer of Fun

Seattle hasn't caught up yet (hello! It's mid-May -- where are you sun?!) but we're gearing up for a summer of fun at Eden Hill. We hope you see some of your familiar faces out at some of these events we're doing!

PlaceInvaders, June 9 - 11, 2017
Max is honored to be invited to guest chef for PlaceInvaders, an NYC-based company hosting pop-up restaurants in interesting (and secret!) spaces around the United States. In early June they're coming to Queen Anne and Max may have already started his brisket brining.... Tickets available for dinner and brunch here.

Rooster & the Till Guest Chef, June 25, 2017
Just weeks later we'll be hopping on a plane to Tampa Bay, Fla for Max's guest chef night at Rooster & the Till! We met chef and co-owner Ferrell Alvarez at the bar ... at Eden Hill ('cause we never leave) and he invited Max to collaborate on a dinner; part of his summer-long Dinner Series. Chef Alvarez, a 2017 James Beard Foundation Best Chef: South semifinalist, sounds like another chef I know: unpretentious but current, local but uncompromising, warm and inviting. Tickets are available here, and if you're coming all the way to Florida to eat Max's food we should definitely meet up once the dinner is over.

Taste of Waldorf, July 10-14, 2017
Not open to the public, sadly, but Max's journey with the Taste of Waldorf Astoria will conclude this summer when he presents his dishes and cocktails at the FINAL competition in mid-July. (As a reminder, Max was invited with other James Beard Rising Star Chef semifinalists to collaborate with Waldorf Astoria executive chefs on a dish and cocktail to develop the next great dish. Waldorf Astoria chefs developed the Waldorf Salad and Red Velvet Cake, ever heard of it?) If he wins, Max's dishes will be on menus of all Waldorf Astoria properties in the world. What?! Send good vibes his way!

International Pinot Noir Celebration, July 28-30, 2017
Love Oregon wine? How about Pinot Noir? Meet us at the International Pinot Noir Celebration in Linfield College in McMinnville, Ore. Max will be cooking a winery lunch at a secret (to guests) winery. If you've never been before, consider celebrating Oregon wine during one of the most beautiful times of the year! Tickets available here

First Year of Eden Hill - Interview with Chef Maximillian Petty

Eden Hill opened for service on Friday, September 4, 2015. I cornered Max for a few minutes to talk about his first year of restaurant ownership, hits and misses, and the future of the Eden Hill.

How has the first year of restaurant ownership been?

Good. They say 'do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life.' Not entirely true, but I've clocked a lot of hours at Eden Hill and I wouldn't do it if it I didn't love every minute of it.

What's been the biggest challenge you've faced?

Space constraints. I knew I was getting into a small restaurant but I've struggled with not enough room to do all my projects from day one. 

And how about the biggest surprise? What didn't you anticipate?

How hard the non-cooking portion of running a restaurant is. The food is just a fraction of running the business and I've learned a lot in the last year about management, taxes, FOH, etc.

Tell me about the Seattle food scene. 

Although it's historic, it's still growing. There are a lot of great restaurants here and we're lucky to have access to some of the best seafood and produce in the world. I'm proud to be a part of it.

You've been reviewed several times. What did one of your critics say that stuck with you the most?

Most of the negative criticism I've gotten is about honing in. I don't disagree, that's why I work hard to be better everyday. I'm young and have time to grow. I'm glad to get the criticism now.

What's the weirdest request you've gotten from a guest in the last year? Did you honor it?

Someone asked me to cook the tartare. I didn't.

Any missteps you learned from? 

No matter what equipment I get or rearranging I do, I can only do so much in such a small restaurant. It's hard for me to accept. I have to be really resourceful with my menu development, plating, and equipment just because of the space we have and the amount of people we do.

How has Eden Hill changed from what you originally envisioned?

Even though it's what I wanted, it's more fine dining than I expected. People asked it of us! They told us to raise our prices and our tasting menu sold really well.

What's in store for year 2?

I want to continue challenging the neighborhood restaurant idea. Keep people guessing about what they'll see on the menu. I'd like to start thinking about a second concept, too.
