Everyone has a different idea of the perfect comfort food, but there’s no denying it when that recognizable craving arrives. For some, it’s a meal that reminds them of home; for others, it’s any combination of melty cheese and carbohydrates; or maybe, it’s a juicy, messy burger with a cold beer. Whatever your comfort food is, Bozeman likely has something that checks the box.
Some may think of Montana as a meat and potatoes kind of state, but that’s not all we’ve got cookin’; vegetarians will be thrilled with the chefs’ culinary prowess in Bozeman. For a small city tucked up in the mountains, the variety and quality of food rivals many urban cities. The rich soil in the Gallatin Valley has long produced a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, and many restaurants work with growers to source their ingredients. Not only are the dishes delicious, but they are also dense in nutrients and easy on the environment. This list is by no means exhaustive, but we’ve amassed ten of our favorites. Bon appétit!
