The 320 Steakhouse opened December 14th. We had a great start to the winter season. The 320 Steakhouse features favorites like the Cowboy Ribeye or Rainbow Trout with Chef Lewis' culinary twist to the entrees. Chef is inspired by the west and utilizes locally grown foods to fulfill his vision of Montana Cowboy Cuisine.
Our first night went well, we had some diners from the ranch and locals that evening. All were happy and well fed, some saying too well. The second evening the Sleigh Rides began and we had a busy dining room with guests enjoying a relaxing dinner after their sleigh ride.
This week Chef Lewis is featuring three course dinner. The first course has three Montana cheese's. The entree is a 16 oz. Cowboy Cut Ribeye from the Lazy SR Ranch in Wilsaw, MT. He is cold smoking the steak, a process that uses ice in the smoker instead of heat. This process delivers the smokey flavor and allows the steak to be grilled to temperature later. The Ribeye melts in your mouth with a Flathead Cherry Port Wine Demi-Glace. To finish a creme brulee with a huckleberry brittle. Come down for this amazing taste of Montana, the three course dinner has a limited supply.
In the Steakhouse you will still find Steve tending bar and we have two new servers, Anna and Nathan. Anna is a true Big Sky local, born and raised here in Big Sky-rare to find but always a gem! Nathan has been pursuing his literary studies at MSU and has just finished the semester, now he is ready to learn how to ski. Any night you might find John Richardson, our General Manager greeting the guests, or Meghan and Angela making the 320 Magic happen in The Steakhouse.
If you pop your head into the kitchen you will find Chef Martin Lewis directing his staff, long time employee's Lee and Mike. Also on the line is Daniel, he is a true weekend warrior in the army reserve. As the winter season picks up we will have more staff returning or starting to work for us.
We are so excited by the snow that has been falling, turning the ranch into a true winter wonderland. Come down and see us soon, whether it is a Sleigh Ride with Marce or for a delicious dinner from Chef Martin's Montana Cowboy Cuisine. Happy holidays-The Steakhouse Staff
