bin on the lake

"Eating is the best way to connect with people," says bin on the lake's Chef de Cuisine Dylan Giordan. "My favorite part about this profession is being able to create a community and camaraderie through thoughtfully prepared food."

"Thoughtful" is perhaps the most appropriate adjective to assign to Giordan's cuisine. The chef, who adheres to a cooking style described as "Northwest with a Mediterranean influence" practices what he has dubbed the "A Study Of..." program. This approach allows him to highlight a particular ingredient on the menu, such as pork, cheese, or lamb, and then whip up items that firmly affix that item, with all of its diverse flavors and uses, as the star of the dish. The focus could also turn to a particular style of cooking. For example, a recent menu included a section dedicated to the study of braising, yielding up hearty, warm, and comforting plates such as braised lacinato kale with garlic and chili, and tomato braised beef brisket with Greek creamed spinach.

To round out his cooking resume, Chef Giordan delights taste buds with contemporary offerings including white-truffle parmesan popcorn, rabbit meatballs, and Idaho trout. Of course, with such attention lavished upon the cuisine, the restaurant boasts an equally-thoughful wine list, with varietals available in 3- or 6 oz. pours, by the bottle, or, in rare cases, by the grape.
