The line keeps blurring between fine dining and food trucks, elevated flavors and budget meals. Latest case in point: Angie Roberts, most recently executive chef of the newish Hollywood Tavern in Woodinville, has signed on with Marination, the Hawaiian-Korean outfit that includes a well-established truck and two brick-and-mortar eateries.

Roberts is well-known from her work in more upscale Seattle restaurants. She was executive chef at Boka Kitchen & Bar for five years before joining Josh Henderson’s tavern project with a few other Boka stalwarts. She headed the Flying Fish kitchen under owner Christine Keff, and worked with other Seattle luminaries Maria Hines and Jonathan Sundstrom as a sous chef at the W Hotel.

Marination, which is known for super-casual and flavor-packed fusion meals like Spam sliders and kalbi tacos and kimchi rice bowls, expects that Roberts will “develop a larger catering menu of diverse offerings for all occasions, and create a summer events series at Marination Ma Kai in West Seattle, including luau’s, barbeques overlooking the Puget Sound, and other special events,” according to a company press release. The company’s Marination Mobile food truck was named the best food truck in the country on Good Morning America, and it has a small Capitol Hill spot with a mostly takeout menu and the larger Marination Ma Kai restaurant on Alki Beach in West Seattle with a bar and patio.
