Safeco Field consulting Chef Ethan Stowell, who now has nine Seattle restaurants and a Ballard pizza place, is getting a lot of buzz lately. Deeply devoted to his hometown, Stowell is committed to seeing that Seattle is recognized nationally as a culinary destination. With his terrific restaurants and the great work he's done at Safeco Field, he's well on his way to achieving that goal.
Stowell just opened Chippy's Fish & Drink, an "upscale fish-and-chips joint" which the Seattle Times restaurant reviewer Providence Cicero claims "to have got it right from the get-go." The Puget Sound Business Journal also recently singled out Ethan and Angela Stowell, the CFO of Ethan Stowell Restaurants, for their business acumen. Just five years ago the restaurants were losing money and nearly went under. Today, the company is flourishing.
Stowell's relationship with the Mariners and Centerplate (the Mariners hospitality partner) began in 2011. His philosophy of keeping it simple, using fresh ingredients and allowing the food to do the talking has won Safeco Field accolades for serving locally-inspired restaurant-quality food in a ballpark setting. With Edgar's Taco's (Stowell's Northwest Mex take on street tacos), the ultra-fresh Taylor Shellfish Oyster Po'Boy, beer battered fish and chips, and spicy hot wings and dirty tots at Swingin' Wings, Stowell has transformed Safeco Field into a foodie destination. Due in large part to Stowell's efforts, Safeco Field was just recognized by USA Today as one of the Top 7 Ballparks for eating. View all food options at Safeco Field »
Stowell was named one of the 2008 Best New Chefs in America and a 2013 Best New Chef All-Star by Food & Wine Magazine and has been honored with multiple James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef Northwest. FOX Sports and ESPN both came to Safeco Field this summer to produce features on him.
