With 250 feet of water frontage on Crystal Springs Creek, the gardens surrounding the home of Lane Brown and Maureen Wright are a tranquil setting right in the heart of the Sellwood neighborhood. The plantings provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife, from blue heron and otter to a newly invigorated run of salmon. The home was designed by the architect/owner and his wife and was featured in the Oregon Home Magazine. This makes for a classic setting for Maya Lovelace’s Yonder that channels her grandmother’s southern Appalachian cooking and hospitality through Maya’s culinary training and the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Maya was a 2017 semifinalist for the James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year. Yonder, which specializes in her delicious fried chicken and beyond the bird, a rotating menu of mains including fried catfish, vegetarian-friendly cornmeal-fried oyster mushrooms and a ton of different sides, some permanent, some seasonal, including biscuits, mac and cheese and collard greens.
