Abstract

"North by East" piece about Rod Mitchell, who built his multimillion-dollar Portland business, Browne Trading Company, after a chance meeting in Camden fifteen years ago with Chef Jean-Louis Palladin, the owner of the four-star restaurant, Jean Louis, at the Watergate in Washington, D.C. Palladin happened to complain of the difficulty finding truly fresh, high-quality seafood in the United States and mentioned that he was flying in fish twice a week from Paris. Mitchell offered to ship fresh scallops and seafood directly to Washington. Palladin was so pleased with the result that he recommended Mitchell to other leading chefs. Today, Browne Trading Company and its fifteen employees ship fresh fish from the Portland waterfront to more than 200 clients, including such well-known chefs as Wolfgang Puck in California and Daniel Boulud in New York City.
