It's always a pleasure to have Garrett
Peck on our podcast. For years, Garrett was at the center of
the Portland food world as GM and host at some of Portland's most
prolific restaurants. He managed the Heathman, later
Headwaters, as well as The Paley Group's other hotel properties,
Imperial, Rosa Rosa and The Crown.
When turmoil of 2020 put beyond a damper
on the viability of those restaurants, Garrett and his wife Jonie
sought greener pastures, which led them to Sisters, OR.
There, they connected with some of Portland's other most successful
restaurateurs, who also found central Oregon more to their liking.
In 2022, the three opened RBC (Rancher Butcher Chef) with other
investors. Now with a year under their belts, RBC is lauded
as one of the states most successful restaurants, outside of
Garrett shares with us some of the joys
of central Oregon life, as well as the growth of Bend as a living
and dining destination. Listen to the end for some of his
faves in the area.
