Tram Bui
General Manager - Wild Ginger at The Bravern

Tram started working with our company in July of 2006 as a server at Wild Ginger Settle. Tram was part of the Wild Ginger Bravern opening team and was a significant part of the bar and service operations. In 2011, Tram was promoted to a management position and continued her career progression with the company.  When talking with employees and managers about Tram, there was always a common theme about her, and it was how much she truly cares about the people she works with. Her passion to see everyone succeed is remarkable, and she is relentless in the pursuit making the people around her and better every shift. Tram's path wasn't always the restaurant business. She has Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Washington.

Martin Beally
Company Wine Director:
Wild Ginger + The Triple Door

Although he started his career as a technology consultant, a passion for fine cuisine led Martin to enroll in culinary school in 2004 to become classically trained as a French chef at the Alain & Marie LeNotre Culinary Institute in Houston.  In January, 2005, Martin moved to Seattle and started his career in the restaurant industry as a line cook.  He quickly made the transition into the front of the house, waiting tables at Seattle's Tulio Ristorante in 2007.  Over the years, he eventually became the Wine Steward for Tulio Ristorante where he developed his love for Italian wine.  He continued that passion by assisting in the opening of Stoneburner in Ballard during the summer of 2013, but when the chance to join Wild Ginger was offered, he could not pass on the opportunity.
 
His passion for wine came almost as an accident when a last minute chance to take the Court of Master Sommeliers intro exam was offered by his mentor, Master Sommelier Emily Wines, in the summer of 2011.  Since then, Martin has traveled to Italy, delving into the depths of Tuscany, Veneto and Piedmont, as well as visiting California's Central Coast for harvest in 2012 and Napa Valley in 2013.  In 2013, Martin was thrilled to pass his Advanced exam at the happiest place on earth, Disney Land's Grand Californian.
 
When not extolling the virtues of Italian wine on the floor at Wild Ginger, Martin can usually be found continuing his studies towards the Master Sommelier exam.  But in those fleeting moments of free time, Martin enjoys learning the Italian language, taking his dog Cheeks out for a run, watching an NFL game, or having a great meal and a night out dancing with friends.
Brad Yoshitomi

Brad Yoshitomi
Kitchen Liaison Manager

Every restaurant has that one person who holds it all together – the one, who knows where to find electrical tape when you need it, or source a new fish for the kitchen or keep track of the glassware, dishes and silverware. At Wild Ginger, Brad is that man. He knows where things are or at least where they should be. Affectionately called ‘Yoshi’ by his co-workers, Brad’s day entails a lot of walking through 5 floors of kitchens,storerooms and dining rooms at both Wild Ginger and The Triple Door. He is the liaison between the predominately Cantonese-speaking kitchen and the mostly English-speaking front-of-the-house staff.

Born and raised in Seattle, Brad has always had a passion for great food and customer service. That led him to Wild Ginger, where he has worked for fourteen years. Best thing about his job? The ability to progress through the organization and find new ways to contribute. Brad has been a server, floor manager, and now happily sits in his current role as jack-of-all-trades. House-made curries with fresh coconut milk are his favorite dishes on the menu and his wife and 3 children love it when he brings home noodles and panko chicken. Following in his footsteps on a quest for great food, the whole family can often be found gracing one of the big booths in the dining room at Wild Ginger for a family meal.
