Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - Montana

In this week’s episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Tony heads to Montana of all places, where the scenery is breathtaking and wildlife abounds. The Blot’s mom and step-dad are obsessed with Montana, so I know all about the beauty of this sparsely populated state and now so can you!

While there, Tony heads to Livingston, MT to visit the Murray Hotel, a “hotel with a past” that has seen Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane as prior occupants. Inside the hotel is the Second Street Bistro, which is owned and operated by Chef Brian Menges. Chef Menges prepares a wondrous meal for Tony made up of all local ingredients. Dish after dish of short ribs, beurre blanc, pork belly, local potatoes and rack of lamb arrive at the table, each one more delicious than the next.

Tony then visits the Paradise Valley, a beautiful area of land nestled among Montana’s towering mountains. Tony and Chef Menges trek across the valley to work up an appetite, before heading to base camp and eating an amazing meal consisting of primarily game meats like deer hearts, foie gras and pheasant.
