Virtual restaurant blends creator's many passions - 2005-02-14 - The Business Journal of Portland [cached]
That takes some imagination, a quality that Sub Rosa "owner" Michael Sherwood has in abundance.
Sub Rosa is located in Dundee in the 1920s cottage that Sherwood and his wife, Linda Lausmann, call home.
Yes, if you are a friend of Mike and Linda's; or, failing that, if you dive into the couple's recipes, stock your cellar from their wine list, and play the music that accompanies their meals, you can create your own Sub Rosa ambiance at home.
Sherwood started creating Sub Rosa a little over a month ago, when he decided to refresh his Web site building skills "since I hadn't built a site from scratch for about four years."
"I needed to learn something, and I needed the concept to wrap around it and pull it forward," he said."But it's caught people's attention in a way I didn't anticipate."
If you are wondering what to cook for your sweetheart for Valentine's Day, you might surf on over to Sub Rosa, where Sherwood has posted "dueling menus" -- his wife's "beef girl" menu and his own "afishionado" riposte.

Sub Rosa Spirits | Press Clippings and Reviews of Sub Rosa vodkas, 20 Jan 2010 [cached]
"An interview with Oregon distiller Mike Sherwood, a Renaissance man that was inspired to bring the first ever spirit with toasted cumin, coriander and natural saffron to the market in his Saffron Vodka.
Beer, wine, spirits—you name it, Michael Sherwood can brew, ferment, or distill it. Sherwood, a 55-year-old former logger, fisherman, and software developer, was the founding executive director of the Oregon Brewers Guild in the 1990s. He now works in the cellar of the Sineann winery in Oregon's Willamette Valley, and when he's not working the harvest or topping off barrels, he distills small batches of what he calls culinary inspired spirits for his Sub Rosa Spirits brand. "Most flavored vodkas are sweet and fruity," says Sherwood.

Sub Rosa, a virtual restaurant created by Douglas County native Mike Sherwood, is online at
DUNDEE -- Mike Sherwood is gaining recognition for creating a restaurant that doesn't actually exist.
The Douglas County native, now living in Dundee, developed a menu, wine list and even musical accompaniment.He named his restaurant Sub Rosa.
Customers can't eat any food there, however.The wine list describes Sherwood's actual wine cellar, but no one can order any of it.
It's not that the service stinks, it's just that there are no servers.
Yet, somehow, Sherwood's restaurant has been featured in newspapers in Portland and Seattle, as well as various culinary publications.Maybe it's because Sub Rosa, a "virtual restaurant," attracts about 3,000 unique visitors a month.
Sub Rosa isn't a restaurant in the traditional sense, or in any sense, really.It's a Web site.
"Some of my friends will go on it and be, like, 'I don't get it'," Sherwood, 51, said.
Sherwood built the Web site using his wife's recipes, their wine collection and added personal music selections that users can download.It was all done as a learning exercise in the Internet language HTML.
Sherwood needed the additional practice so that he could better serve customers of his business, Arbre Wine Marketing.Sherwood started the sales and marketing firm for wineries and technology companies in 2002.
His virtual restaurant experiment unexpectedly caught on, however.He got the name Sub Rosa from "The Da Vinci Code," which used that name referring to secret societies.
"The concept of a secret, private eatery that's just for them, that only they know about ... that has really caught people's imagination," Sherwood said.
He's even received e-mails from people wanting to make reservations at the "actual" Sub Rosa.
"Some people believe it's real," he said.
Sub Rosa even spawned a new job for Sherwood.The owners of viewed his site and liked it so much they offered him a job writing about food and wine for their site.
Even without any professional journalism experience -- though he did cause a stir with some satirical articles in Roseburg High School's Orange R before graduating in 1971 -- Sherwood couldn't pass up the opportunity.
"They pay me and they give me wine to write about," he said."This is a good job."
It's just another in a string of professions he's taken on.Sherwood's been in and out of the computer software industry and was executive director of the Oregon Brewers Guild for five years.
He even paid his way through college by setting chokers in the woods along the North Umpqua River.
Sherwood finds his way back to Douglas County several times a year to visit his mother.He also attends the Guest Chef and Winemaker Dinner Series at Steamboat Inn.
"Mike is an extremely creative fellow who, left alone in a prison cell in the Sudan, could entertain himself ... by his thought process," he said.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer took an offbeat approach to the site, reviewing it as an actual restaurant.A sample reads, "Overall, Sub Rosa's offerings were among the most refreshing we can recall in recent restaurant reviews, in part due to their utter lack of caloric load."
While there is a following that would like Sub Rosa to jump out of the virtual world and into the real one, Sherwood said he's not interested in running a real restaurant.
He and his wife entertain a lot and that's about as close as he wants to get.Plus, Sub Rosa, as it is, never closes.
"It's so much more fun to just put the food we love up there (on the Web)," he said.
