As one of the newest spots in Bozeman, Urban Kitchen will satisfy those craving a seasonal New American cuisine in a warm, contemporary atmosphere. Located in the FICO building right off of Downtown Bozeman, Urban Kitchen is owned by renowned chefs Meg and Joe Romano who chose to set up shop in Bozeman, MT, where they could access and use ingredients harvested close to home and enjoy the outdoors. This is the perfect date night location to whisk you away to the big city for a night with their contemporary décor and upscale service. It has been very popular since its opening, so reservations are highly recommended.
Seven Sushi and Dave's Sushi
When it comes to sushi spots in Bozeman, we have a few, but the contenders for number one are definitely Seven Sushi and Dave’s Sushi. It is hard to choose between them so all we can tell you is that you must try both! Both spots have amazing specialty roll selections as well as nightly specials that are to die for. The sake selections are also very delicious. Try the HouHouShu sparkling sake at Seven if you prefer a refreshing and fruity sake. You might let location be the deciding factor for you on this one. While both are incredibly delicious, Seven is located in the Cannery District while Dave’s is right downtown. If wait time is a concern, you have a better chance to get seated at Seven on a time crunch over Dave’s due to their difference in venue sizes.
