Eric Emlet, Executive Chef

Fresh from a seven-year post as Executive Chef at the renowned Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club, Eric Emlet has partnered up with Chris Glass to open High Tide Seafood Bar & Grill, a restaurant that reflects his passion for great seafood served with style.

Both a saltwater and fresh water fisherman since his youth, Eric was drawn from the shores of Lake Michigan to the Pacific Coast to pursue his dream of being a chef.

His knowledge of seafood preparation was honed over eight years as Manager and Executive Chef at two restaurants in San Diego's Mission Beach neighborhood, where he drew a loyal following for his creative menus and distinct style. He deepened his expertise at Scottsdale's Culinary Institute Le Cordon Bleu, graduating with Alpha Beta Kappa honors.

Eric relishes the opportunity to bring exquisite cuisine and an unparalleled dining experience to his own community.
