Introducing Fire & Vine Rosé

May 29, 2018

This light and refreshing wine is a great summer sipper

Fire & Vine Rosé

We are celebrating the arrival of long sunny days with the release of a new summer sipper.  Fire & Vine Rosé is now available by the glass, bottle or retail at each of our Fire & Vine Hospitality locations.  The 2017 blend of California Chenin Blanc with a touch of Syrah was selected for its light, refreshing nature and beautiful bouquet. 

 

Lee Spires, director of the Fire & Vine Hospitality Wine Syndicate, is always looking for special vintages to include as a private label for our restaurants.  “We started this program with the El Gaucho 20 year anniversary blend in 2017 and then added the Revelers Red in 2018. I wanted to add something special for the summer and this Rosé fits beautifully with the flavors of the season.”

 

Lee recommends pairing the Fire & Vine Rosé with fresh summer dishes including Dungeness crab, oysters and ahi poke but says it is also just perfect for sipping while sitting on the porch enjoying these beautiful Pacific Northwest summer days. #Roséallday!

Meet Larry Marshall II, General Manager

February 27, 2018
 

Meet Larry Marshall II, General Manager at Millers Guild

Building stronger relationships through service is something that Larry has always valued, so it’s no surprise that he felt a calling to hospitality. “I believe that service can take on different forms and I most enjoy creating experiences through unique service,” Larry explains.

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Larry graduated with a Communication degree from Loyola University in Chicago. After finishing his undergrad and “a long summer” in Detroit, he decided against law school to pursue hospitality instead. He packed his bags and landed in Portland, OR graduating in Hospitality Management from Le Cordon Bleu. After completing an externship at the Paradise Inn at Mount Rainier, Larry found his way back to Chicago and enjoyed a successful tenure with Kimpton Hotels, moving his way up and transferring with the company to six different properties (Chicago, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Seattle and Aspen). His greatest professional accomplishments to date was opening the Palomar Chicago and becoming a hotel GM before age 33.

After some time in Aspen as a restaurant manager, he wanted to get back to the city. He narrowed his choices down to Chicago and Seattle, and lucky for us, Seattle won. He joined our team in September 2016 as a captain at El Gaucho Seattle, and in January 2018 was offered the General Manager position at Miller’s Guild.

“I’m excited to have my own store and know that the day-to-day operation is a reflection of the time, energy and coaching I invest into the place and the people,” Larry explains. “I am also very excited to work with Kirin (Chef de Cuisine at Miller’s Guild). He is very creative, a great chef, and it will be fun to see where we can take Miller’s Guild together.”

Larry also loves working with the rest of the team at Miller’s Guild. “We are an eclectic bunch who can create eclectic experiences,” he explains.

Larry is known for his curiosity and openness, integrity, loyalty and being articulate. He lives with his girlfriend, Jennifer, and their puppy Bella Rae. He loves dogs except for Whippets, Afghans and Greyhounds because “they just seem creepy to me,” he admits. A little known fact is he fears deer and squirrels, ever since his grandmother told him that squirrels will attack if you get too close because they think you are chasing their tails.

In his free time, Larry loves to play golf, basketball and soccer. He also enjoys chicken verde enchiladas, lasagna, a gin & tonic, and Jimi Hendrix, who penned his favorite quote, “Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens” and song, “Crosstown Traffic.”

Make your way downtown to meet Larry and his team at Miller’s Guild!

Meet Kirin Chun, Chef de Cuisine

February 21, 2018

Meet Kirin Chun, Chef de Cuisine of Millers Guild

Being a chef isn’t what Kirin thought he’d grow up to be, but cooking has always been an important part of his life. His grandma, whom he calls an “old-school Korean chef” owned her own restaurant in Federal Way before Kirin was born. “Literally everyone in my family is in love with cooking, which is where I got it from,” Kirin explains. “That, and I love to eat. So, I love to cook.”

Kirin started working in the kitchen at age 16 for restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, gaining more experience and being promoted along the way. He joined the El Gaucho Seattle team in 2014 as a pantry cook, and was quickly promoted, eventually to an Executive Sous Chef. “I had an awesome time working with Chef Jonathan and the Seattle team. It was the ultimate learning experience,” Kirin explains. “Becoming the Sous Chef for the first time in my cooking career at El Gaucho is one of my most important accomplishments,” he says.

In late 2017, Kirin was asked to move to Miller’s Guild as the Chef de Cuisine. He admits it’s a different dynamic than what he’s used to. “I am so excited about working here,” he exclaims. “My journey, the food, the people who I get to meet and work with. That’s the awesome part about my job now – interacting with the guests.” The Chef’s Counter at Miller’s Guild seats 10 right in front of the Infierno Grill, so guests can watch the chefs at work which makes for a fun, warm and relaxed atmosphere.

Kirin stays on top of new cooking trends through a lot of Instagram, cook books, and going out to eat whenever possible. While his favorite foods are Korean and Mexican, he seeks out unique foods and places with different cooking techniques. The most unique thing he’s tried is ant eggs in Mexico. “It was in a salad and I wasn’t even sure what it was until someone told me. I loved it,” he says. When he has time, his favorite dish to make at home is his grandmother’s recipe for egg rolls.

In his free time, Kirin enjoys working on cars and motorcycles, fixing anything, drawing and writing, and of course, cooking. He’s known for collecting old cars, mainly Volkswagons, and “being funny.” When asked his favorite thing about working for Fire & Vine, Kirin answers: “The growth we’re experiencing and the family aspect behind the company. We are valued as employees, and that imparts a family-feeling working here. We all know each other very well!”

Come see what Chef Kirin and the team are cooking up at Miller’s Guild, open 7 days a week and serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus brunch on the weekends.

A Dream Realized: Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest

June 20, 2017

It’s hard to believe that Miller’s Guild will be turning four later this year! The Seattle downtown core keeps our extremely talented team busy and I remain present there and enjoy seeing familiar faces thanks to your return visits. Outside of the restaurant, I wanted to share two projects I’ve been stealthily working on for nearly two years, both of which opened their doors last week in downtown Bellevue: The Lakehouse restaurant, and Civility & Unrest cocktail lounge.

The Lakehouse, found on the second floor of W Hotel in the Lincoln Square expansion, is my interpretation of a Northwest farmhouse through and through. I intended to build a place that is comfortable, yet elegant; familiar, yet sophisticated. Ultimately, The Lakehouse is a respite, a home for our guests, with the menu created around local produce reflecting vibrant, farm-inspired craft cooking.  The Lakehouse is centered upon the artisan experience, from the ceramics that the food is served on, to the art on the walls, and the people creating the food and drinks in the kitchen and bar. It is my latest dream accomplished, with hard work still paving the way.

A spirit all its own just downstairs from The Lakehouse, Civility & Unrest is the place for serious cocktails and unbridled fun, inspired by the cocktail culture and underground speakeasies of a bygone era. As the name might suggest, the evening can start with a level of civility, and flourish as the night goes on when inhibitions are relaxed. There are craft cocktails, vintage liquors, Champagne and sparkling wines. It is also a place for entertainment with future fashion shows, tattoo artists, unplugged sessions, DJ sets, trunk shows, and more. This is a steal-away spot for friends, or dates, or to embrace strangers!

Just like with the inception of Miller’s Guild (which is going strong and I’m so grateful to you for that!), creating a restaurant or bar has always been intensely personal to me. It’s never an afterthought or an accident, but something that receives thought and reflection, and always inspired by a sense of place. I strive to get that purposeful connection where the authenticity is felt by every guest that walks in the door. These two new additions are my latest labors of love, and if you’re on the Eastside, come by! I’d love to hear about your experience.

All my best,

Jason

Great things are happening in 2017!

February 28, 2017
Chef Jason Wilson in Millers Guild


We’re hitting milestones left and right, and what better place to share them than here?

Our recent guest appreciation party at Miller’s Guild celebrated the restaurant’s third anniversary (seems like yesterday we just opened!). Today, we’re quickly approaching the opening of The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest in Bellevue. These two milestones, made during a great start to 2017, brought me serious reflection upon the fine line chef-entrepreneurs must walk to balance growth and success while maintaining culinary innovation and elevated guest experiences.

Make no mistake, I thoroughly enjoy being an entrepreneur and restaurateur and savor the visionary aspects. However, my first love will always be cooking. Being a chef is what drives me. It’s at the heart of everything that I do and it gives me a creative outlet unlike any other facet of my business. It’s what jumpstarted my career and continues to be what I do best.

To that end, I’ve decided to partner with the El Gaucho Hospitality team by combining our strengths. El Gaucho Hospitality has long been a business that I admire for its level of service and ability to source premium products, both locally and from around the world. It’s a business decision, but also a deeply personal one that rests on the values that I philosophically share with them.

Along with my staff, this partnership will bring a more elevated and memorable guest experience while allowing me to continue to push the culinary envelope at my restaurants, the El Gaucho restaurants, and in our future endeavors together. I remain owner, brand visionary and driver of all culinary aspects for my restaurants: Miller’s Guild, The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest.

I look forward to cooking for you at Miller’s Guild and I invite you to join me at The Lakehouse and Civility & Unrest in Bellevue when we open this summer.

All my best,

Jason

New Barrel Aged Spirit Flights

January 31, 2017
After a rigorous tasting process, we’re debuting three new spirit flights that focus on the meticulous barrel aging process, specifically, tequila aged in bourbon barrels, super premium bourbon, and Glenmorangie aged in old wine barrels. Read below for the full description of each flight and pick out your favorite to try!

North and South Unity

Millers Guild Wood-Fired Craft Cooking and Cocktails

Four different tequilas from Corazon were each aged in Barrels that were previously used to age Bourbon. This process infuses the tequilas with smoky notes, and hints of caramel and cedar. When you taste the different tequilas side by side, it is fascinating to see the difference the barrel makes.

 

Rescue Bourbon

 

Millers Guild Wood-Fired Craft Cooking and Cocktails

These are three Super Premium bourbons. It’s a real treat to sample each one side by side and see the different roads the bourbon can take. Look for hints of vanilla, smoke, char and molasses.

 

Flavor of the Gods

Millers Guild Wood-Fired Craft Cooking and Cocktails

Glenmorangie is famous for a variety of different scotches aged in old wine, sherry, madeira, and port casks. While aged for a similar time, they all express extremely different characters. There are levels of sweet, smoke, peat, charcoal, tar with hints of the keg’s previous resident.

Honeynut Squash – Ingredient of the Season

October 11, 2016

Farm to Table squash at Millers Guild

Ingredients are the essence of cooking. There is nothing more important in great cooking than finding the best ingredients that you can, then applying the best technique to present the ingredients so that they can shine brightest. Sometimes the technique is simple, sometime it is complex, but at the heart of our work, chefs should show truly GREAT ingredients and find pride and passion in searching out the very best products to work with. Greatness begets itself, thus, I proudly enjoy the relationships I have with Farmers, Fishers, Foragers, Ranchers and all the amazing people that produce the food I create with.


Farm to Table Wood-Fired Craft Cooking at Millers Guild


Amy Dietrich owns Frog Hollow Farms in Walla Walla, WA. She is as passionate about what she grows and the land she works on as anyone I have ever met. A year ago, I returned from a trip to New York, dining at Blue Hill Farm and Betony, where I tasted a small, beautiful, sweet and dense version of butternut squash, called a honeynut. I called Amy and told her how sweet and amazing it was and she knew immediately why I wanted a local version. A year later, Amy presented us with Walla Walla grown honeynut squash! They are thin-skinned, sugary, dense in texture and have an absolutely beautiful flavor. We were off to the Infierno in moments, charring, ash roasting, smoking, pan roasting in butter, slow roasting above coals and herbs – you name it. We decided to play with popped grains, custards, and ash roasting the whole squash and slicing it into wedges. What an experience and what a flavor!

This weekend Miller’s Guild chefs will be out and about supporting great causes in the community and sharing our wood-fired craft cooking from Seattle to the Eastside.

On Friday, Chef Jason Wilson will be manning the grill at
The Bite of Seattle’s The Alley
 to benefit Food Lifeline. He’s created a special dish of charred eggplant, garden summer vegetables and spicy peppers as part of The Alley, which benefits hunger relief through Food Lifeline. Support a great cause and enjoy seasonal summer vegetables wood grilled to perfection by our award-winning chef.

Savory and sweet – that’s Chef Sam Mardis! As our sous chef and pastry chef, Sam will be utilizing every cooking technique, tool and his creative approach to food when he competes against the highly regarded World Cup of Baking Champion, William Leaman of Bakery Nouveau in The Bite of Seattle Mystery Ingredient Cook-off competition. Each chef will have 30 minutes to create a dish that will impress the judges and audience. The Bite Cooks throws a culinary wrench into the cooking equation with three mystery ingredients revealed at the beginning of the competition. Cheer on Sam and taste his creation on Saturday, 2 p.m.

Where we source our beef

June 29, 2016

Millers Guild in downtown Seattle features Wood-Fired Craft Cooking and Cocktails






For me, craft cooking starts with the ingredients that I source. The farmers, ranchers, and fisheries that bring ingredients to my door, in turn, inspire the way that I cook – cooking from a sense of place. Whether it’s the freshly picked peaches for a Grilled Summer Peach Salad with ricotta and prosciutto, freshly caught Wild Alaskan King Salmon that I serve with asparagus and Tarragon Both Broth, or the local Shigoku Oysters with Cucumber Gazpacho on the Chef’s Counter Tasting Menu, the quality of the ingredients are a sticking point. Our beef is also a part of that, whether wagyu or dry-aged, the quality of our beef focuses on the flavor and texture, hallmarks of what a good steak should be, but we go beyond that by looking at consistency, sustainability and humanely raised factors, too, which speaks to the larger authenticity of what we do at Miller’s Guild.




I recently sat down with my go-to rancher, Niman Ranch, who provides the steaks at Miller’s Guild, and enables us to create dishes such as our Wagyu Steak Tartare with cured egg yolk, anchovy and giardiniera; our Wagyu Ribeye with signature motoraioli and truffle emulsion; or our 90 day dry aged Ribeye, which positions us at the forefront of dry-aging in Seattle.
