About The Kitchen

The idea for The Kitchen came from a vision of a restaurant that would provide something different - a refined, yet casual dining experience featuring modern cuisine with a comforting twist.

With a commitment to simplicity, cleanliness and an uncomplicated presentation, The Kitchen specializes in exquisite flavors with artful presentation. The cuisine embraces Asian influence and fantastic ingredients, including the freshest fish, meats and seasonal vegetables.

The beautiful and elegant architecture of the building mirrors the contemporary concepts in the food, setting the stage for a truly remarkable culinary experience.

Executive Chef

Like many successful chefs, Joe Boyles was born into the culinary world. The son of a professional and at-home chef, Joe was surrounded by talented chefs from a young age. Joe’s passion led him to culinary school, where he graduated and went on to work in notable restaurants around Kansas City for over a decade. His vast experience opening several restaurants around the city and cooking a variety of cuisine styles then brought Joe to Jackson Hole to join the Fine Dining team as the Executive Chef of The Kitchen. Joe’s use of bold flavors and textures sets his style apart, as does his behind-the-scenes focus on leadership, professional growth and team work.
