35 years ago, Tom Douglas and Jackie Cross opened the Dahlia Lounge, a restaurant that helped define Northwest cuisine, marrying an innovative and elevated menu with warm, informal hospitality. Over the years, the Company grew to include multiple restaurants, a farm, a catering division, and a product line, including three best-selling cookbooks, but the heart of the business stayed the same – deliciousness served with graciousness.

At TD and Co., we strive to foster the sense of community that you feel around the table: a feeling that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. We actively build community within our businesses, neighborhoods, and philanthropic intentions at our tables and beyond. We believe that there is always room for another chair at the table. 

These days, Tom and Jackie are transitioning leadership to their business partner of 15 years, Eric Tanaka, their daughter and General Counsel Loretta Douglas, and long-time Operations Director, Sean Hartley.  Along with a dedicated corps of coworkers, ET, Loretta, and Sean are building on what Tom and Jackie began and are committed to continuing to elevate Northwest cuisine and exceptional hospitality. Tom and Jackie are never far away and can always be found farming in Prosser, teaching classes at Hot Stove Society, recording the Hot Stove Radio Show, and pitching in wherever extra hands are needed. As Tom likes to say, “no one can out effort us!”
