Jackson Hole: Couloir
Every May, Condé Nast Traveler releases its Hot List, a collection of the best new hotels, spas, restaurants, and nightspots. Check the Daily Traveler every day for a new post from this year's list.
Most restaurants with jaw-dropping views get away with serving solidly mediocre fare. Not so at Couloir, Jackson Hole's mountaintop table, where the food rivals the setting. Chef Wes Hamilton takes a straightforward approach, steering clear of any fussiness or fusion. Here, a cup of buffalo chili or a duck confit and grilled fontina sandwich is the stuff of memories, and the tenderloin of buffalo and seared foie gras could turn a vegan bad (prix fixe, $85).
