Mackay, Sharp, Wilson partnership announced
El Gaucho Hospitality and James Beard Award-winning Chef Jason Wilson have announced a new partnership between two respected Northwest hospitality companies. El Gaucho owners and proprietors, Chad Mackay and Ken Sharp, in partnership with Chef Jason Wilson, will lead the four El Gaucho restaurants, AQUA by El Gaucho and Miller’s Guild as well as new concepts and opportunities. The first collaboration will include the summer 2017 openings of The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest at the W Hotel in the Lincoln Square Expansion in Bellevue, Washington.
This is a collaborative partnership between two respected Pacific Northwest hospitality companies – not a merger. No change in ownership at either company are at play. The partnership is designed to highlight the strengths of both organizations and provide growth opportunities.
Chef Jason Wilson will bring his experience as a chef and strong restaurateur to shape and evolve the culinary aspect, creative development and brand growth. He will continue to be the visionary and drive the culinary development and brand at Miller’s Guild, The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest.
El Gaucho Hospitality will continue to own and operate the four El Gaucho restaurants and AQUA by El Gaucho.
