Patrick and I had visited our friends out in Denver earlier this month. While there, I had a chance to try some dishes made with bison, a game meat that is much more intense with beefy flavor and so tender. When we got back, I couldn’t stop thinking about bison and where in Illinois/Chicagoland I could enjoy it. Well, the answer was easy…. Ted’s Montana Grill. This restaurant was not far from us and we had never gone before so it was fun to experience what the restaurant had to offer.
The menu was pretty straightforward and the star is their bison burgers. By featuring the biggest bison menu in the world, Ted’s Montana Grill has made bison a popular menu choice today in dining, providing incentive for ranchers to actively grow their herds. We were given some bison to sample, just to taste the difference and it as pretty clear… the flavor of bison is a clean and intense flavor of beef. It’s not as fatty but even with bison being leaner than beef, it wasn’t dry. Ted’s Montana Grill definitely knows how to make bison shine!
