About Submarine Hospitality
Founded by Joshua McFadden and Luke Dirks, Submarine Hospitality connects diners to a community of local chefs, servers, farmers, ranchers, artists, and designers. The group’s motto—“Locally Sourced. Aggressively Seasonal”—speaks to its desire to promote both ethical food systems and optimal flavor. The group believes that true hospitality derives from a collection of details—from the handcrafted ceramics to the locally-grown celtuse, from the custom candles to the customary greeting at the door. Each of Submarine’s projects exists to cultivate the creativity and knowledge our staff requires to realize these experiences of hospitality for every guest that walks through our doors. Current projects include Ava Gene’s, Tusk, Fora, Cicoria, Takibi (spring 2020) in partnership with Snow Peak (summer, 2020), and Tope, Lovely Rita and 2NW5 in collaboration with the Hoxton, Portland.
