Chef Haines’ foundation of culinary knowledge began in the early days with many hours in the kitchen with his mother, and then he spent much time learning with the big chefs of the world including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Catherine Brandel. Haines was also fortunate enough to work for Restaurants Unlimited in Hawaii, where he picked up even more skills.
Above all, Chef Haines’ favorite canvas is salmon. “The theme of Bistro 33 is northwest-inspired, a lot of hardwood roasting of salmon, with things like blueberries and hazelnuts.” The bistro strives to provide a scenic setting with a comfortable atmosphere and a sensible price. “We cook with the idea of flavor first and work on being reasonable so people can have a great night out, even in today’s economy.”
