Meet the Chef: Shawn Applin
Shawn Applin got an early education in the art of food-based hospitality while watching his grandmother prepare Sunday supper for the family each week in upstate New York. A graduate of New York’s Culinary Institute of America, Shawn relocated to the West Coast, where he cooked at Fog City Diner and Scala’s Bistro in San Francisco and at James Beard Award-winning Chef Christine Keff’s Flying Fish in Seattle. He’s honored to make use of Washington’s bountiful local produce in the Outlier kitchen. On his off-hours, you can find him hitting the golf course or sailing the Caribbean.
Executive Chef Shawn Applin was recently featured in the "Seafood Trends" section of Nation’s Restaurant News.
