Meet the chefs
Bjarki Snær Þorsteinsson
Bjarki started his culinary career at 16 by studying and working at Kjallarinn Restaurant in downtown Reykjavík. For some international kitchen experience, Bjarki worked at the esteemed Midsummer House in Cambridge, England. After his stint with modern British cuisine, Bjarki returned to Iceland to work at one of Iceland's premier restaurants, Grillið, at Hotel Saga. At 19, Bjarki went East to Stavanger, Norway, for a year to complete his apprenticeship at Renaa Restaurant, where the focus was on local, pure, and natural. Back in Iceland, Bjarki started as a head chef in Flóran Garden Bistro and worked in various restaurants across Reykjavík. Today Bjarki works as a head chef at Lux Veitingar with celebrated Chefs Viktor Örn Andrésson and Hinrik Örn Lárusson, specializing in exclusive and creative catering events.
Ron Anderson has managed Tom Douglas Restaurants for over 13 years, including positions as Chef at Cuoco, Etta’s, Sous Chef of Dahlia Lounge, and Executive Sous Chef for the company, which meant he learned how to walk into any of the restaurants and work on the line as the Chef and Kitchen Manager in charge. In 2021, Ron was promoted to become Chef of the Carlile Room.
Ron was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, and raised in East Wenatchee, Washington. In 1998, Ron packed his jeep and drove to Seattle, intending to become part of a big city food scene and to become a chef. He worked at several well-regarded fine dining Seattle restaurants, including Brasa, Fandango, and El Gaucho, cooking Spanish, French, and Pacific Northwest cuisines and learning on every job before he landed at his first Tom Douglas Restaurant, Etta’s, in 2004.
The Carlile Room is inspired by singer/songwriter and Seattle resident Brandi Carlile. Basking in the glow of the Paramount Theatre marquee, the Carlile Room is a groovy cocktail spot serving up a modern-American bar & grill menu with vibes of the late sixties and early seventies. With references to the explosive vibes of the late sixties/early-seventies in its décor and classic seventies-era lounge cocktails, The Carlile Room presents a thoroughly modern and progressive menu with our favorite local meats. Located across from one of Seattle’s storied performance halls, the Paramount Theatre, The Carlile Room caters to pre-theatre crowds with sharable plates and a hearty menu
