Taste of Montana
Bozeman's Plonk Restaurant
Plonk is a European colloquialism for cheap wine but it is also the name of Bozeman's hip, new wining and dining hang out and multi-sensory banquet.
Before you even see the menu, you'll want to ingest the luscious surroundings. Plonk is one, long room, with high ceilings, decorated and furnished in a combination of historic old-town Montana, and 70s contempo-lounge. While waiting for your food to come, you'll want to take a good look around, at the restored legend of local cattle brands over the bar...
Feast from the Forest: Wild game recipes the whole family will enjoy
From the bounty of the forests of Montana it is possible to produce hearty peasant fare or elegant feasts. Family dinners might be venison chops smothered in mushroom soup, sprinkled with Lipton's Onion Soup, covered and baked slowly in a big iron kettle, or elk liver sliced thin, floured and fried quickly in a bit of bacon grease — served with onions, mashed potatoes, rot kraut (red cabbage), and crusty hot sourdough bread.
Rattlesnake Vineyards — Montana's small winery
Montana might often seem short on luxury, but part of the greatness of the place is that it never lacks dreamers. Andy Sponseller and Connie Poten are two of them, and after five years of dreaming, scheming, and just plain sweating, the pair's far-sighted vision has ripened to fruition. By Christmas, the first bottles of wine produced by their fledgling Rattlesnake Creek Vineyards should be available for glorious, luxurious consumption.

Eddie's Cafe in Apgar: a Montana Original
For 32 years the Larson family has been running Eddie's Cafe in this tiny town whose main street dead ends at beautiful Lake McDonald. But after years of slinging burgers, breading trout and flipping pancakes, the Larsons are ready to hang up their aprons and spatulas. With their two children not likely to carry on the operation, the Larsons say they're going to sell the restaurant after this year.

Cafe Kandahar's fine dining
One of the northwest Montana's perennial favorites, Cafe Kandahar on Big Mountain (now the Whitefish Mountain Resort) deftly blends cuisine, service, and atmosphere.

Sideways, Montana Style
Montana might often seem short on luxury, but part of the greatness of the place is that it never lacks dreamers.
