Theater for the Hungry

The dining experience at the green o is a singular culinary journey. Each course is a surprise, and each meal is a revelation, juxtaposing elegant presentations with primitive live-fire cooking. Unexpected details bring the outdoors inside, and plates, often finished and perfected right at your table, are curated almost to a person. Wine and spirits are thoughtfully paired by a decorated sommelier. And options ranging from charcuterie to breads to kouign-amann pastries are created in-house during your stay by Executive Chef Brandon Cunningham and his team of award-winning sous and pastry chefs.


The Social Haus

Located at the center of the resort, the Social Haus is the true heart of the green o, just a short walk from each of the Haus accommodations. Soaring windows open to the outdoors, allowing the mingling of cooking aromas with the fresh, pine-scented air. Details like Shou Sugi Ban wood, stained to match the surrounding pine trees, and artisan-designed custom lighting accentuate the feeling that you’re enveloped in the forest. Inside, you’ll encounter the inner circle bar, an intimate lounge, a dining area and an open kitchen. Take in the sights and smells as you watch chefs prepare exquisite meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

“If food were art, I just worked my way through the Louvre, nine paintings at a time.” Pam LeBlanc Adventures

“If The Green-O calls to mind a Scandinavian retreat, then its restaurant is Montana’s Noma.” Vogue

“Items change night-to-night, from scallops and salmon to lamb and bison, but the presentations are uniformly Michelin-worthy.”Hemispheres

Live-fire cooking

Taking full advantage of our Western heritage, the green o showcases an open kitchen centered on live-fire cooking. Dramatic flames kiss ranch-raised meats and grill them to juicy, fall-off-the-bone perfection. Expect tangy sauces and lip-smacking spice rubs. This is so much more than your typical barbecue; it’s theater for the hungry, sustenance for the soul.

Locally raised, foraged and farmed

Located within the greater, 37,000-acre Paws Up Ranch, the green o culinary philosophy can be summed up in four words, “Cook locally, cook sustainably.” We’ve built strong ties with the surrounding agricultural community and foraged the finest local ingredients. It’s an inspiring place for our chef and his staff, with culinary riches that include cherries, wild chamomile, elk, beef and even unexpected flavors like Douglas fir tips.

Just down the road, bountiful options

Guests at the green o are invited to discover other dining options available at the Ranch. Not far beyond our gates, at The Resort at Paws Up, you’ll discover the more formal Pomp restaurant, Trough with its home-cooked Western cooking and full espresso bar and Tank with its exquisite drink menu. The Resort, often in partnership with the green o, also hosts culinary events throughout the year featuring award-winning visiting chefs, vintners and spirits experts.

Executive Chef Brandon Cunningham

“I like an approach of small, thoughtful plates curated almost to the person.”

Not surprisingly, the green o’s executive chef was well on his way to stardom in foodie-centric Portland, Oregon, when he was convinced to bring his skills to Montana. He credits his tenures with live-fire legend Chef Jason French at Ned Ludd, pasta guru Chef Matt Sigler at Renata and El Bulli veteran Chef Sunny Jin at The Resort at Paws Up for his diverse culinary background.
