The Edgewater Hotel Names Jonathan Little Executive Chef of Six Seven

The Edgewater, an iconic Noble House hotel and the only over-water destination in Seattle with unobstructed views of the Puget Sound, today announced Jonathan Little as the new executive chef of Six Seven, the property’s signature restaurant and lounge.  Drawing on his 21 years of experience in the culinary world with numerous leading roles at luxury hotels throughout the U.S., Little will oversee all new and classic dishes on the acclaimed restaurant’s menus for locals and travelers to enjoy while managing a team of experts in the kitchen.

“We provide a level of service and flavor at Six Seven our guests have come to know and love, and Little is the perfect candidate to continue that reputation,” says General Manager of The Edgewater, Ian McClendon. “He knows the intricacies of managing a restaurant having worked for prestigious hotels in the past and has a wealth of knowledge in his field, making him a valuable asset to our team.”

Born and raised in the American Southeast with periods in Alabama, Florida and Georgia, Little initially pursued a medical career before realizing cooking was his passion while working as a line cook during college.  He thrived in the kitchen from a young age and landed a role with the St. Regis brand in Atlanta, working as a chef de partie until he transferred to the St. Regis in Washington, D.C.  Little’s career in the capital allowed him to work alongside and learn from notable chefs in the industry, including Alain Ducasse – a key influencer of Little’s work – Susur Lee, Antione Westermann, Fabio Trabocchi and David Burke. 

Little continued to climb the ladder and acted as executive sous chef for ESquared Hospitality and Corner Table Restaurants before relocating across the country to Seattle in 2019.  Prior to joining The Edgewater and Noble House Hotels & Resorts, Little worked as executive chef of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle, where he familiarized himself with the Pacific Northwest culinary scene and acquired more leadership experience.

Situated on Pier 67 inside The Edgewater, Six Seven effortlessly blends stunning waterfront views, a historical and cultural foundation, award-winning fare, and a menu comprised of the freshest, organic local produce, meat and seafood from around the Pacific Northwest.  Featuring a seasonal outdoor patio with sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, Six Seven is also perfect for al fresco dining and drinks on the over-water deck. 

Six Seven is now open daily for breakfast from 7-11 a.m. and Tuesday-Sunday for dinner from 5:30 - 10 p.m.
