A passion born of artistic creativity has conceived a love that will never stop seeking a greater result. A love that invites others to share in his sweet discoveries. Driven by this love, Chef Oscar Ortega has become one of the world’s greatest chocolatiers. For Chef Ortega, being a master chocolatier is not an occupation; it’s a quest. A continual search for the perfect blend of art and flavor.
Situated in a historic home downtown, The Blue Lion has been popular with locals since 1978. Ask people what their favorite meal is in town, and you will often hear The Blue Lion’s roasted rack of lamb. This dish keeps patrons coming back: New Zealand lamb is rubbed with Dijon mustard, seasoned with breadcrumbs, baked and served sliced with a peppercorn-rosemary cream sauce and jalapeño-mint sauce, enjoyed in the relaxing ambiance of a refurbished, older historic home. But you’re encouraged to sample from the array of other items, including fresh fish, game and all-natural steaks. Vegan and gluten-free entrées are also available. Save room for one of The Blue Lion’s desserts: mud pie, tiramisu, Russian cream or one of the nightly dessert specials. Enjoy live acoustic guitar music most nights and dining on the patio during summer months. Reservations are recommended.

Jackson’s historic Teton Theatre is home to a new production: a wood-fired pizza restaurant using primarily local and organic ingredients in its simple but fantastic salads, pizzas and desserts. Hand-stretched dough is made daily and topped with delicacies like house-pickled jalapeños, organic cremini mushrooms and nitrate-free bacon. A list of local beers and domestic wines complement the lively atmosphere. Anyone trying to avoid gluten, or eat dairy or meat free, can still enjoy a pizza from the many vegetarian options. The large space easily accommodates families and groups while also offering plenty of booths and small tables for privacy. The fresh salads are a standout, and if you happen to save room for dessert, you are in for a treat — a sizzling fruit skillet topped with a scoop of Moo’s ice cream or the classic late-night house-made cookies and milk.

In summer 2018, this historic Jackson soda fountain returned to the Town Square. Siblings Jessica, Nikki and Patrick Gill revived the business started by their great-grandfather, Bruce Porter, in 1919. Today, you wouldn’t know that the soda fountain closed its doors in 2001. Antique swivel barstools line a bar that holds a variety of house-made ice creams. Stacked into a sundae dish or swirled into an old-fashioned milkshake, these sweet treats are the cherry on top of a classic diner meal at Jackson Drug. Burgers sourced from the family’s ranch, the Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch, bring authentic meaning to the term farm-to-table. The Jackson community is thrilled to see Jackson Drug return to the Town Square and, with it, original menu items like the egg salad, chicken salad, chili and giant pretzels.
Jackson Lake Lodge offers three premiere dining experiences:
Inspiring views aside, what brings diners to The Mural Room time and time again is the award-winning Rocky Mountain cuisine.

There are very few restaurants that can appeal to every palate, but Lotus has something awesome for everyone, including meat eaters, vegans, live/raw foodies and the allergy-concerned diner. Guy Fieri’s visit to Lotus, as featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, is an indication that this worldly restaurant can please all types of eaters. What’s more, all of the offerings are prepared in-house and from scratch. A lunchtime favorite is the Bombay Bowl, which comes chock-full of brown rice, vegetables, mango and creamy lemon-cinnamon-ginger tikka sauce (lots of locals say it’s addicting). For dinner, opt for the elk lasagna and you won’t be disappointed. Any time of day, you will find smoothies, cold-pressed juices, craft cocktails, cold beers, natural wines and tasty sweets that are actually good for you.
