Chef Owner Naomi Pomeroy started several small concepts from catering to a coffee house but wanted to go back to her creative roots with pop-up dinners. After closing or selling each of these concepts she started Beast to get back to the intimacy and creativity of these coursed suppers.
"The intimacy of these suppers is preserved at Beast, a 24-seat restaurant where people can chat freely with each other at communal tables. Beast offers a six-course, prix-fixe, and service compris dinner twice nightly Wednesday through Saturday as well as two four-course brunch services every Sunday. In 2010, 2012, and 2013, she was selected as a finalist for the James Beard Awards in the category Best Chef Pacific Northwest. In 2014, she was selected as the recipient for this prestigious award."
