The inspiration for Aerlume came on a summer afternoon spent at a Walla Walla, WA farm when Chef Wilson and Chad Mackay discussed the importance of using and preserving the full bounty of seasonal ingredients – from the juicy, sun-ripened tomato to the fragrant tomato leaf. The name is a nod to the value of an heirloom within a family and the quality of seeds in the farming community. It reflects the focus on pinnacle ingredients and captures the essence of light and open air found in the restaurant space itself.
Aerlume opens to a sweeping Puget Sound view and includes live fire elements to welcome and warm the space, including a dramatic indoor Fire Table which invites guests to gather around. The restaurant is the first independent project from Fire & Vine Hospitality, led by CEO Chad Mackay and James Beard Award-winning chef Jason Wilson.
