Eat and drink

Napoli’s Italian Restaurant, Cheyenne
If you’re in Cheyenne in July for Cheyenne Frontier Days which is the world’s largest rodeo, Napoli’s Italian Restaurant is a great place to dine. Once the Old Frontier Hotel, it has been transformed into a restaurant that opened just a few months ago. A building with a terra cotta cowboy frieze on the outside doesn’t seem like a likely place for great Italian food, but this family-friendly restaurant offers delicious pasta, pizza, seafood, salad, and sandwiches.

Bin22, Jackson Hole
Just steps away from the Town Square, Bin22 is Jackson Hole’s premier wine bar, bottle shop, and restaurant. Aussies will love this fine dining establishment which features delicious tapas including cheeses, olives, salads, pork belly sliders, meatballs, and grilled lamb, in addition to great value wines, spirits, and craft beers. Bin22 also includes a market with house made meats, cheeses, ice creams, and crackers so that you can take this food away to enjoy on your daily adventure.
