The Smiling Moose Deli has been a Colorado tradition since 2003. Born in Edwards, CO nestled in the Vail Valley, the Smiling Moose has grown into 13 restaurants in the state and 1 in Wisconsin. We are extremely excited to announce that we will be expanding into Montana, Texas, Indiana, and South Dakota in 2011!
Whenever possible, Over the Tapas sources its ingredients from local purveyors?including itself. The restaurant has a ranch, located in Bozeman, that provides it with season after season of fresh produce as well as beef from certified cattle. To ensure fresh produce year-round, the ranch even uses a series of aeroponic towers to supplement the traditional gardens and greenhouses in which plants can put their roots up and relax.
The result is a bounty for Over the Tapas diners. Instead of protecting their plates with a moat of gravy, guests are encouraged to share Spanish-inspired tapas. (Gluten-free and vegetarian options make it especially easy for groups to agree on a dish.) The menu constantly changes to fit the season, holding everything from lamb sliders and mushroom ravioli to goat-cheese croquettes with a pine-nut crust. An extensive alcohol selection punctuates the dining experience, complete with sangria and Montana craft beers.
For the specialty pie that bears the pizzeria?s namesake, Gunny?s dough-spinners pull out all the stops, piling on chicken, bacon, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, and alfredo sauce. Patrons can join in the fun by customizing their pies with up to 15 toppings?from ground beef to bell peppers?and the option for gluten-free crust. The rest of Gunny?s menu encompasses other pizzeria favorites, including boneless wings tossed in parmesan-garlic sauce and handmade meatballs piled into sandwiches. Beer, wine, and Coke soft drinks can accompany feasts, which unfold amid frequent entertainment such as karaoke and the day?s biggest games on TVs throughout the bar.
The Hut is the ideal destination for locals to come together and share some homemade food and a couple cold beers. Owners Kris Bushnell-Woten and James Todd designed the place as a warm and friendly neighborhood oasis, and their menu reflects this emphasis on comfort. Cooks send out crowd-pleasing dishes such as french dip sandwiches and hand-formed burgers served with addictive waffle-cut fries. Beers are available on draft and in the bottle to cap it all off.
Desert Rose Restaurant & Catering is a homegrown operation thanks to local owners Scott and Cindy and the fresh, regional ingredients they source to craft their dishes. The menu covers a wide range of culinary eats, from certified-Angus-beef meatloaf to ginger-teriyaki stir-fry to local all-natural rib eye. Aside from food-and-catering services, Desert Rose bolsters the community with eco-friendly practices such as composting and using recycled products when possible.
Even in the light of day, a luminous glow emitting from one corner of Gallatin Valley Mall. This kaleidescope of colors is home to Clubhouse Minigolf and Arcade, where visitors putt-putt amid neon squiggles and shapes that characterize the mini course's 18 holes. Just beyond the golf course, slot cars zip along a six-lane track that swoops, curves, and bends in on itself, much like a crazy straw or a snake that's stuck on the merry-go-round. In the arcade, players can battle each other over air hockey, pinball, and driving games.
