Owner Dan Bugge may look familiar: during eleven years of appearing daily as a star “fish thrower” at the famed Pike Place Fish Market, he was also seen on countless TV news and entertainment shows, including The Tonight Show, A Cook’s Tour with Anthony Bourdain, Martha Stewart, and Grilling with Bobby Flay, among many others.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be at the helm at Matt’s, a spot I’ve dreamed of running since I first came to the Market. I’ve always known that I wanted to work only in the Pike Place Market, and taking on Matt’s is a natural next step up from all my experience handling only the best seafood, and getting to know the rest of the fantastic products the Market has to offer all year round. The traditions and remarkable charm of the Market have always been, and will continue to be, of paramount importance to both myself and my staff," says Dan.
