< Back to Red Star Tavern

With a culinary career that includes learning from legendary mentors and cooking on land and at sea, Dolan Lane is back in familiar territory. Heading up the Red Star kitchen, he'll further showcase his innate knack for working with local ingredients.

Dolan’s continual support of Portland community farms with go-to suppliers like Your Kitchen Garden and Sauvie Island Organics, he captures what's in season and puts it to delicious purpose with Mediterranean, Italian and French influences.

When he's not cooking, Dolan is spending time with his wife and three kids. Their favorite pastimes? Enjoying dinner together or checking out local farmers markets, of course.
