Former Steps chef opens new restaurant at Rosario

Madden Surbaugh, formerly of Steps Wine Bar & Grill in Friday Harbor, is opening The Quilted Pig in the waterfront veranda of the Moran Mansion at Rosario Resort.

The resort reopens Friday with the new restaurant, a refurbished spa, and guest accommodations. The Barto family of Anacortes purchased the 30-acre resort in 2008 from Olympus Real Estate Partners.

While chef/owner of Steps, Surbaugh was voted one of the “Northwest’s Best Chefs” by KCTS Channel 9 public television in 2008 and was awarded Wine Enthusiast magazine’s Award of Unique Distinction. He created the Islands Certified Local program and is a member of the board of the San Juan Agricultural Guild.
