Dining in Jackson Hole
Jackson Hole has an abundance of great dining destinations, and the following list contains just a few suggestions. For further restaurant options please contact the Concierge for details.
Making an advance booking is strongly suggested, particularly between 7pm and 9pm, and during the popular Christmas/New Year and Easter periods, and for larger groups.
The Grill at Amangani
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Grill’s dining room seats 65 and is imbued with an air of stylish comfort, enhanced by its wood-burning fireplace and redwood-panelled walls and ceiling. Stunning mountain views can be enjoyed from the windows, and original artwork adorns the walls. Seating includes benches, and rawhide and rattan chairs. Tables are of black terrazzo and the floor a combination of carpet and slate. The Grill’s menu showcases innovative American cuisine, including steaks, chops, seafood and locally sourced organic foods. There’s also a Chef’s Daily Special. The intimate bar features rugged sandstone columns, a scattering of wrought-iron stools, and a cosy window side setting of tables and chairs.
Calico is housed in a historic building, which dates back to 1905, when it was originally built as a Mormon church. It’s fascinating history is reflected in its current form, on entering, guests will feel like they’ve been transported back to another time and place. Gardens full of flowers border the walkways below the deck, from where diners enjoy their meal accompanied by lovely views of both the gardens, and the Teton Mountains in the distance. Inside, guests are seated beneath a raised, beamed ceiling. The Italian-styled dining room has an airy, casual ambiance with the additional feature of an open kitchen. The bar is sectioned off from the dining room by means of three large, stained-glass windows calling to mind the building’s previous existence. These dramatic windows were locally crafted and represent western culture, extending in Calico’s case to great food!
Treat yourself to a gourmet meal at the cosy Gamefish restaurant, honoured by the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence in 2004.
