Local Chef's dream culinary destination comes true; destination Restaurant, Market & Event venue opening late Summer 2019
For Immediate Release: June 13, 2019 Silverdale, Kitsap Peninsula WA
Maynard’s is bringing together people, product and perspective to create a destination unlike anything else in Kitsap County…or in the state of Washington, for that matter.
Maynard’s Restaurant - Market - Events will be brand new when it opens later this year, but it has actually been many years in the making - over two decades in fact. “I still remember cutting up strawberries in the kitchen with my dad when I was little. It won’t happen today, but in those days, he took me to work at his chef job and we spent many hours together in restaurant kitchens. Being in the restaurant industry was always a part of my life,” Chef/Owner Maynard (J.J.) Meland reflects. “After I got my culinary training, worked in restaurants, became an educator, I always wanted to do something different; something where fantastic food and the community come together for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.”
His wife Renee agrees. “When he told me, he wanted to do something like this, a business venture that is about people, it didn’t surprise me at all. That’s who he is. He is putting together a top-notch team who will deliver on the promise of an exemplary guest experience.”
Chef Meland and his management team are excited to welcome guests to Maynard’s - Silverdale towards the end of this summer; the planned food style is New American cuisine with global influences. Maynard’s will not only be a restaurant & bar offering farm-to-table food, highlighting ingredients from local farmers whenever possible, but the Maynard’s Market (under the same roof) will also include a retail market where consumers can purchase local produce/products and house made grab & go. “We live in an area with some of the very best food in the country, and that comes from having the best ingredients. You don’t find better ingredients than from right in your own back yard. We can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been up to. It’s something we are very proud of, and we hope Silverdale will be too.”, explains owner Chef Meland.
