EIGHT ROW SEATTLE

The place is run by chef David Nichols and his brother Ian, who grew up in a town near the city. What they wanted was to talk about their American heritage through the lens of immigration. The richness behind the unity of people from different flavorful backgrounds. As children they remember working alongside their grandfather on the farm, especially harvesting during cherry season. Cherries are measured by rows, with the eighth row being the largest of them all. The name Eight Row comes from this part of their childhood.


The menu is constantly changing with seasonal ingredients of the area. The kitchen is full of influences from North America, Latin America and Europe. A collaboration from different parts of the world that ends up in fused dishes.

DEVELOPMENT

The objective was to create a brand system that represented a folk tale. A narrative that spoke of life in the woods, the land, the harvest, the farm. A story of friends, family and community. A reminder to city people that there are stories behind the mountain range.
