Which city in Montana is on the list of “next big food towns”?


With the popularity of the Travel Channel and Food Network, people are beginning to plan their vacations on “experiences”. In fact, many people plan in advance where they will dine and what restaurants they would like to try and there is a real name for that.

Gourmet tourism.

Here’s a perfect example of what I’m talking about, when my friend Shelly and her husband Todd travel, they always look for restaurants that have been featured on “Diners, Drive-In, and Dives” and according to Shelly, they haven’t disappointed yet.

The food tourism industry is big business and generates a lot of money not only for local restaurants but for other businesses as well. Oh, and it just so happens that a town in Montana is making waves and getting lots of love from national publications when it comes to great restaurants.

French gastronomy.

So which city in Montana is leading the way? According to a recent Food & Wine article, this town in Montana is Bozeman.

Bozeman has really come into the limelight in recent years with thousands of people flocking here to live or vacation. With the increase in population comes more retail and that retail includes restaurants. Bozeman isn’t considered a “big city,” at least not yet, but it’s leading the charge in what Food & Wine has called “small towns with big food scenes.”

The post then mentions Izakaya Three Fish located on Main, Bourbon, located off 7th, and Aspen and Last Call Modern Mexican off Main and Wilson, to name a few. I have personally dined at Bourbon and Last Call and have been impressed with both.

However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what Bozeman has to offer.

One of the great things about Bozeman’s food scene is that you can be super stylish with 5-star service, or you can grab an amazing sandwich from a food truck and be completely satisfied with both. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, Bozeman covers all the bases when it comes to culinary creations. For my part, I really appreciate this aspect. It is a good representation of this city. From upscale to downhome, there’s something for everyone here at Bozeman.

Heck, we even have a few places that have been on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” so if my friend Shelly ever comes to visit, I know where we’ll be going.

WATCH: The best beers in every state

To find the best beer in every state and Washington DC, Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that collates user scores for beer in real time. BeerAdvocate makes its decisions by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington DC and applying a weighted ranking to each. The weighted ranking pulls the beer towards the middle of the list based on the number of ratings it has and is intended to allow lesser-known beers to increase their ranking. Only beers with at least 10 ratings should be considered; we’ve gone a step further by only including beers with at least 100 user ratings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out which is the best beer in each of the 50 states and Washington DC.
