With 20 years under his apron, Geoffrey Reed owes much of his culinary awareness to the ocean and mountains that surrounded him as a native of McKinleyville, California. It began early on in his parent’s garden, fishing in the creek behind the house and having full reign to play in the kitchen. Geoff got his first taste of the culinary life at 12, helping with chocolate dipped strawberries and washing dishes on Valentine’s Day at a restaurant where his older brother worked. That adventure turned into a career of working his way through every position in the kitchen. Now in San Francisco, Geoff has worked numerous restaurant openings including Pläj with Executive Chef Roberth Sundell, rated among the top 100 restaurants in the Bay Area by SF Chronicle. He founded FishInKitchen, his own workshop classes where he brings people out on fishing trips and teaches how to clean and cook their own catches. Now with Eatwith, he hosts his own series of omakase pop-ups which feature his one-of-a-kind recipes from the fresh seafood he catches and local foraged ingredients in the Bay Area.

This was such a fun night out. First, the venue is unusual, in an industrial sake brewery. The atmosphere in the building was fun and there were several people working who were quite attentive to everyone's needs. But the real star of the show is Geoff -- an incredibly talented chef. His flavor and ingredient combinations were so amazing and everything so fresh (he even showed us the fresh-caught fish before it was prepared for serving. ) He has great attention to detail and beautiful plating. He prepared the plates in front of us and it was fun to see him chopping and garnishing before our eyes. There were several courses -- each very different -- and I'm sure no one left hungry! Really impressive. Highly recommend.
Excellent!! This was a truly amazing experience. Each dish was better than the previous one. The flavors and textures were very complex and different than anything I've had before. The sake from Sequoia Sake went perfectly with the menu. I can't recommend this place enough. It was fun, the food was fantastic and I can't wait to do this again! If you love sushi, you'll love this meal!
