Proud Lander Owner

Jill Hunter comes from California originally, but is a true Wyoming girl at heart.   Her first trip to Wyoming was in 1991 to work as a housekeeper at Old Faithful Lodge right out of high school.   Falling in love almost immediately, she couldn’t wait to come back permanently. Jill’s first visit to Lander was in 1996 on a climbing trip to the now famous, Wild Iris.   During her college years, Jill had her first taste in the restaurant industry, working as a saute’ cook and waitress at the Mangy Moose in Jackson Hole. She finally moved to Lander in 2003 and never left.  Jill has a beautiful daughter Ellie, soon to graduate and planning to attend Boise State University.  

After Jill settled in Lander, she got a job at the newly opened Cowfish.   She managed the Cowfish for several years before purchasing the infamous Lander Bar/Gannett Grill.  Later in 2015, Jill sold the Lander Bar, but not before making some great changes to the menu and atmosphere.  During that period she brought in as many fresh and local ingredients as possible, including beef sourced only from Fremont County.  She also completely renovated the second story of the building (formerly a brothel), into what is now known as the Coalter Loft, a cool wine bar with a casual vibe.  Still wanting to do something with her creative energy, Jill purchased the historic flour mill and feed store across the street. She first transformed the front portion of the 1888 mill building into the Mill House, a three story boutique hotel.  Not wanting to stop there, Jill decided to renovate the feed store and warehouse portion of the building in 2018. Keeping the historic feel of both buildings was very important to her, so this presented a whole new set of challenges for this phase.  In the fall of 2019, Jill opened her new restaurant, Mulino Italian Bistro. Seeing a niche to fill in the community along with her love of food, she felt this was the best fit for the space, which offers a cozy dining experience and top notch fare.  

Who knows what the future holds for this talented entrepreneur, but the town of Lander knows she won’t be able to sit still for long.  Jill still finds time to rock climb and trail run with her boyfriend and dog Ozzy between projects.

Our Chef

Joseph Hammer, born and raised near Philadelphia, has always had a culinary predisposition. Beginning with his first jobs in high school, the food and hospitality industry has always been his profession. Following high school, Joe attended and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Institue of Culinary Arts in Pittsburgh. He got his start as the chef of The Glassburn Inn, a historic inn with a farm to table restaurant, after successfully completing his internship there, being promoted to Sous Chef, and eventually Executive Chef. His passion for technique and ingredient focused food developed, and eventually Joe moved closer to Philadelphia to continue advancing his career in the highly competitive fine dining culture of the city.

            He joined the small culinary team at Mica, named one of “The Ten Best Restaurants in America” in 2012 by GQ magazine. Under the tutelage of Chef/Owner Chip Roman, Joe earned the title of Sous Chef, and soon became the Chef de Cuisine. Among the refinement of his heavily technique focused cuisine, Joe refined his art of bread baking and handmade pasta dishes during this time. He also gained a deep sense of hospitality, and a great love for enhancing the guest experience. A few years later, Mica was sold to a previous chef, and Joe was relocated to Chip Roman’s flagship restaurant, Blackfish. Joe became the Chef de Cuisine at Blackfish and had great success there. He eventually expanded his skillset as a chef, taking a position as Executive Chef of the historic Valley Green Inn.

            The Valley Green Inn was an opportunity for Joe to not only run a restaurant, but also delve into the catering end of hospitality. Here, he revitalized the culinary program and menus for one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful wedding venues. A few years later, it was time for a change. Joe and his wife Angela decided to leave the commotion of the city for a quieter lifestyle. After traveling for months searching for the place that felt like home, they ended up settling into their dream home in Lander. Finally, the stars aligned for Joe to begin the next chapter of his career at Mulino. Joe is excited to bring his culinary expertise and hospitality to Lander and can’t wait to cook for you at Mulino.
