GABE SPIEL

CHEF, Tankard & Tun


BIOGRAPHY

Leading the Tankard & Tun culinary team is Chef Gabe Spiel. Chef Gabe lives for the moment when a diner pauses after the first bite of their meal and looks curious. “I love it when people assume they know exactly what they’ll get from a dish and then are pleasantly surprised by a twist we’ve put on it,” says Gabe. Local pride in all our NW has to offer guides his menu, which will focus on in-season and locally grown and foraged food, complemented by our handcrafted beers. Gabe was born and raised right here in the Puget Sound region and started as a line cook in The Pike Pub at 19 years old. Rivaling his passion for cooking is his growing family and getting outside to ski, hike and fish whenever he can.
