For February’s Oyster Social, we can’t wait to welcome back Mr. Twisted Filipino himself — the one and only Chef Carlo Lamagna! Later this year, Carlo will be opening his highly anticipated restaurant Magna, where he will at last get to showcase the wildly exciting and deeply personal Filipino flavors he loves. Come enjoy a preview!
At the core of Lamagna’s cooking is his family and his Filipino heritage, both of which have influenced his career. His dishes are like a glimpse into his life: where he’s come from and where he’s been, coming together to make something new. He uses classic techniques with modern, beautiful plating, merging old school flavor with new school style.
Kind, passionate, hugely talented and always smiling, Carlo doesn't know how to do anything small, so expect big fun and big flavors (take a peek at Carlo’s a la carte menu below)! Along with these soulful dishes, you’ll find a bevy of PNW oysters from us and a super fun cocktail line up from our boy Andy.
Come join the party! No reservations necessary, just drop by for restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table, friends.
