Zach Lake

August 7, 2018

Zach has spent his restaurant career in many different roles learning various aspects of the industry and has worked in what he considers to be some of the top restaurants in Washington. He spent the first 10 years of his restaurant career as a line cook, and in 2013 was promoted to pantry cook at Ray’s Café making salads and desserts. He moved up to lead Café cook and a couple of years later he moved to the Boathouse as a line cook, also working his way up to a lead line cook.

Next he transitioned to the front of the house where he worked in expo, preparing food before it’s delivered to the guest, and as a host then Front of House Manager to learn more about running a restaurant and diving deeper into Ray’s culture of excellent customer service. He is thrilled to now be Café Sous Chef and help lead this bustling and busy kitchen!
