Authentic Italian with a Wild West Twist
Perhaps the only place in the world where you can experience Elk Tartar, a delicious starter comprised of seared elk, lemon, capers, red onion and parsley, you won’t be disappointed that you treated yourself to this exceptional fusion of Montana’s take on Italian cuisine. Another favorite here in the wild west is the Burrate All Pane, served with castelvetrano olives and salsa verde.
The gluten-free options are a perfect introduction to the variety the menu offers. With salads ranging from Beets & Burrata, Bibb Salad, and Italian Chopped Salad, vegetarians will also swoon for these crisp delights. A gluten-free pizza crust is available, so it doesn’t matter whether your tastes favor the traditional margherita or pepperoni pizza or if you desire something a bit fancier. If that’s the case, we recommend you try the Prosciutto Pizza topped with bleu cheese, mozzarella, parmigiano, pickled red onions, and arugula. If you’re looking for a pizza with a wild west twist, order the Fennel Sausage, topped with burrata, scallion, Fresno chili, and red sauce. Finally, a vegetarian favorite is the Butternut Squash & Gorganzola, served with mozzarella, Montana honey, and black pepper.
The Wild West fusion continues into the pasta entrees. The Wild Boar Ragu is flavored with pappardelle, red wine, rosemary, sofrito, and pecorino while the Hunter-Style Duck Tagliatelle is a brandy and red wine braised duck with cremini mushrooms. If you’re looking for something a little less rustic, there’s plenty of traditional options such as Lasagna or Spaghetti & Meatballs. Another great option is to take advantage of Whitefish’s close proximity to the Pacific Northwest, which provides a delicious Seafood Pasta chock-full of shrimp, crab, white wine, uni butter, and cauliflower puree.
