About Us

Owner and Chef, Solange Brunet is a 20 year resident of Missoula, graduate of Hobart William Smith College, Certified Master Gardener, cello player and a soccer and trekking enthusiast.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from Scandinavian and Catalonian descent, Solange brings new tastes to a cosmopolitan Missoula. 

As avid cook, she shares with us her passion at The Empanada Joint and confirms her mantra, offering: 

                        Argentine food that bites the senses with big flavors in small packages.

In the competitive field of the food industry, she’s gone where many feared to go and opened this charming Argentine Cafe and now we will be able to taste her passion, f
rom meat to vegetables or local flavors like bison and lamb, we can enjoy Empanadas for every taste.

Her sport of interest is soccer and honoring her descendants, she admits to be a fan of the Argentine National team in every World Cup and of the Barcelona team, the 2011 and 2015 Champions League Winner and 2013/ 2015 Spain Champions.
At the Empanada Joint you will be able to share her admiration to the king of the sport, Leo Messi, present on several wall posters as well as other vistas of Argentina main attractions: Iguazu Falls and the famous Patagonia.

However, she never lost sight of her passion for fine dining. She knew that in order to create the dishes she wanted to share with the world, using only the freshest ingredients available, she would have to establish her own restaurant.

Chef Solange opened the doors in the spring of 2012 and before she created her first dish, she vowed to only use the finest ingredients, and prepare each dish with an infusion of passion and creativity. Critics have been raving ever since.

The Empanada Joint is committed to serving only the finest foods, made with the freshest ingredients. All of our dishes are made from scratch. Our comfortable decor and friendly service create a memorable experience.

We invite you to come and experience a restaurant that is a cut above the rest, as seen in the     Food Network on September 18, 2017.
