Amangani (translated to the Peaceful Home) clings to the crest of East Gros Ventre Butte, some 7,000 feet (2,135 meters) above sea level, high above the town of Jackson. Looking out over the Snake River Valley with snow-capped peaks in the distance, the redwood-paneled Amangani Grill specializes in local, sustainable ranch meats, fresh fish and seasonal farm-to-table produce. Forging a new American regional cuisine, chef Lizarzaburu and his team create an array of hearty dishes. Head to the Amangani Grill to enjoy a gourmet breakfast, a peaceful afternoon lunch, sunset cocktails overlooking the valley below or an unforgettable dinner experience.

Celebrating more than 20 years on the Town Square, the Snake River Grill is still the locals’ favorite go-to place. Whether at the intimate bar, featuring 300 wines and a signature cocktail list, or in the rustic-elegant dining room, visitors must experience at least one amazing meal here while in Jackson. Its James Beard-nominated chef keeps things fresh, simple and seasonal. The menu is varied and always offers something unique, even for a seasoned foodie (think exotic mushrooms, green chickpeas or artisanal hams). While there are standard favorites (potato pancake with smoked salmon, steak tartare pizza), the Snake River Grill is constantly evolving with frequent menu changes and nightly specials, preventing regular diners from ever getting bored. Just make sure to save room for one of their house-made desserts and ice creams.
This cozy, 32-seat restaurant was first known to be the best breakfast in town. With daily home-baked treats, it’s a great place to start the day. It’s also a great way to end it. Dinner at The Wild Sage is perhaps the best-kept secret in town, with an inventive menu incorporating game, meat and seafood while sourcing organic, sustainable and regional ingredients. The changing options offer inventive, seasonal cuisine and suggested by-the-glass wine pairings from the Wine Spectator-awarded list with each course. Don’t miss the truffled ciabatta with sea salt and cracked pepper, either. Questions about the food? The chef is working within sight in the exhibition-style kitchen and is available to discuss dishes.
