The Ultimate Sampling

Jackson Hole Food & Wine Winter Fest

Jackson Hole Food & Wine Festival
Lindley Rust

After a day on the slopes, there’s no better way to unwind than sipping great wine and spirits and nibbling on tasty bites. This March, you can do just that at this three-day fest in Teton Village. During an intimate small panel discussion, you can taste small plates prepared by chefs (including Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski of San Francisco’s renowned State Bird Provisions), paired with great wine varietals and one sensational bourbon. For a more hands-on experience with the chefs, take a cooking class featuring recipes from the restaurant. Hungry for more? Head to Taste of Teton Village to sample the best culinary offerings of Jackson Hole eateries and wine producers in a festive après setting. But don’t spend too much time daydreaming about the deliciousness—tickets are selling out fast!

While you’re in town, make sure to check out some of Jackson’s best dining for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and aprés-ski fun. 

Start the Day Right

Picnic

Picnic, Jackson Hole
Smoked-salmon-and-cucumber toast at Picnic.

A day of outdoor adventuring calls for breakfast at Picnic. Coffee from a variety of guest roasters and pastries from sister bakery Persephone are a constant draw. For a hearty breakfast, try the decadent French toast bread pudding or savory scone skillet with a cheddar black pepper scone, fried egg, red-eye gravy, and bacon pine nut crunch.

Sweet Cheeks Meats

For the carnivores in the group, Sweet Cheeks has a wide selection of meaty dishes that changes daily. From morning burgers topped with eggs to breakfast burritos stuffed with sausage and eggs, there’s a filling, protein-packed start to the day awaiting you. 

Top of the World Waffles at Corbet’s Cabin

Dine on fluffy, golden waffles with epic views of snow-topped Rendezvous Peak. Head to Corbet’s Cabin for waffles topped with Nutella, bacon, and brown sugar, plus souvenirs and cold drinks. You’ll need to purchase a ticket to ride the Aerial Tram to the top, but breakfast at 10,450 feet is more than worth it. 

Midday Meals

The Phoenix and the Dragon

Spiced up mountain fare is found at this walk-in-only restaurant that’s become popular for Korean fried chicken and spicy noodle soups. 

Old Yellowstone Garage

Both millionaires and cowboys saddle up to the bar at Old Yellowstone Garage in the Caldera House hotel to dig into gussied-up red-sauce Italian dishes, such as wagyu-meatball-spiked spaghetti.

Western Supper

Million Dollar Cowboy Steakhouse

There’s no way to miss the giant, glowing bucking-bronco sign that marks the location of the Million Dollar Cowboy Steakhouse. Feast on a rib-eye, an elk chop, or a braised wild boar shank that’ll quench any residual hunger from a day of skiing or hiking. 

Snake River Grill

Head to the Snake River Grill for a sophisticated dining experience, starting with small plates like chilled snow crab claws and lobster spring rolls. Don’t miss desserts like the chocolate s’mores tart, topped with homemade marshmallow. 

Aprés-Ski

Million Dollar Cowboy Bar

Upstairs from the steakhouse, you’ll find a lively honky tonk with live music most nights. Grab a beer and relax in the iconic bar that’s always a good time. And, if a quick bite is needed, the Grill has a selection of grub from burgers to chicken wings. 

Silver Dollar Bar

For a local’s watering hole, check out the Silver Dollar Bar around the corner, located inside the Wort Hotel. There are craft cocktails and a cozier vibe there, with music that strays from the rowdy honky-tonk genre. 

The Mangy Moose

Within the Moose, visitors will find a wide selection of experiences that includes one of the West’s most iconic aprés-ski bars, The Mangy Moose Saloon. After you’ve made your way through its two restaurants, grocery stores, and gift shops, stop by for classic cocktails and live music, and a burger beneath the stuffed moose that hangs from the ceiling.
