Andrew Yanak, Chef de Cuisine

Lucas was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. He received his first job in the service industry while attending the University of Idaho as a bartender at a Hagadone Hospitality property. He moved to Seattle with his wife in 2007 where he learned to love the restaurant scene. Since arriving in Seattle he's worked for Thomas Kollasch (former chef of Barking Frog and Alderwood resort) as part of the opening team for Juno, Jackie Roberts at The Pink Door and Maria Hines at Agrodolce. He has made it a mission to learn what it means to provide service and create a guests experiences. "My one and only time dining at Rovers remains the best dining experience I've had to date. I've enjoyed the last several years working for Thierry at Luc and look forward to learning all that I can in my new role."

Andrew Yanak, Chef de Cuisine

Andrew was born and raised in Seattle and has been cooking since he could reach the counter. Cooking and eating were the center of any family gathering. Cooking anything from Italian, German, to Slovak—one cuisine he never tried at home: French. This intrigued him and in 2008, he enrolled in the South Seattle Culinary Arts program. Here he saw the influences French cooking had on the world. Even after attending culinary school, his culinary inspiration comes from his father. Staying local to his roots and enjoying our bounty of fresh ingredients, Chef Andrew has cooked mostly in the Pacific Northwest and hopes to do so for as long as possible.

Kathleen grew up in Southern California, supporting herself by working in the restaurant industry.  After discovering her passion, she started designing flower arrangements as part of her own floral business, Flowerworks.  Thierry and Kathleen met while working together in Los Angeles and decided to make Seattle their home.  Together they proudly ran Rover’s restaurant for over 25 years and raised two boys, Ryan and Adrian.  She most recently played a huge role in designing both Luc and Loulay, and continues designing flowers for both restaurants.  She also gets great pleasure hosting both regular customers and new faces that pass through the front door of Luc and Loulay.  She happily continues to feed her passions: food, flowers and family.
