Mae is a love story to the memories and emotions that our personal food histories evoke. Named for Chef Maya Lovelace’s grandmother, Lillie Mae Abernathy Lovelace, Mae serves a multi-course prix fixe dinner showcasing the best of seasonal Pacific Northwest produce, fine products from Southern artisans, and Maya’s childhood memories of home and family. Our food is Southern Appalachian-in-flected, displaying the region’s cultural food heritage: You can expect to find fresh and preserved fruits and vegetables, heirloom grits and cornbread, housemade vinegars, preserved heritage breed pork, and other hallmarks of Appalachia’s blend of German, West African, Irish, and Native American cuisines.
Mae also offers a list of delicious and food friendly non-interventionist wines, refined cocktails featuring local fruits and botanicals, and fine bourbons. Beverage pairings are offered alongside our prix fixe menu for those who would love to try a little of everything.
We hope to welcome you into our home soon to guide you through an evening of indulgence, introduce you to new friends, and send you on your way with some lovely food memories of your own (and maybe a hug).
