Chris Hain

A native of Boise, Idaho, Executive Chef Chris Hain’s culinary passion began at a young age. Hain’s career began in Boise’s finest restaurants and country clubs, where he immersed himself in the signature flavors that have come to define Northwest cuisine. Chef Hain brings that palate to the menu at Emilio’s, located at The Grove Hotel, where locally sourced ingredients pair with regional & international influences, quenching the appetite of locals and visitors alike.

Diners at Emilio’s enjoy signature dishes that Chef Hain has become known for, including the American Kobe beef pot roast, highlighted with a porcini cream sauce and bacon asiago mac & cheese or the indulgent Idaho Smoked Trout Poutine, to name but a few favorites. Appeal to your good senses, and add some flavor to your Boise culinary experience in Emilio’s restaurant, featuring Fine Northwest cuisine.
