Our Standards


As we grow our business, we regularly find ourselves explaining our philosophy and principals to customers. We believe our kitchen is delivering some of the highest quality food in the Northwest. But for Rafns' to succeed, we need to be better about communicating how we operate and what separates us from other restaurants. So here it is, in a nut shell:

What we do:
We use organic olive oil and organic butter.
We use free-range eggs.
We use free-range chicken, grass-fed beef, and humanely-raised pork.
We make our own gelatin-rich bone broth.
We use organic tea and chocolate from local suppliers.
We use organic produce with few exceptions.
We compost all of our food waste, paper towels, and paper napkins.
We take pride in the cleanliness of our kitchen.

What we don't do:
We don't use MSG.
We don't use highly-refined or hydrogenated oils.
We don't use Teflon or synthetic cookware.
We don't have a microwave in our kitchen.
We don't use genetically modified ingredients.

These are the standards and values that guide us. If you share these values, we hope you will support us!
