Ted's Montana Grill Restaurant Review

: Going from electronic media guru to restaurateur, Ted Turner has teamed up with George McKerrow Jr. of LongHorn Steakhouse to craft a chain of restaurants that gives diners the option of beef or bison. In so doing, Turner has found an outlet for his work energy --- and his bison herd. The largest landowner in Montana, Turner produces organically raised bison meat for the chain, although beef is a slightly less expensive alternative and there is chicken. Nineteenth-century design features, such as the pressed-tin ceiling, create a warm atmosphere. Besides chicken sandwiches and burgers, the best of which is the one topped with blue cheese, dinner brings on a first-rate "beer can" chicken with mashed potatoes and broccoli; Saint Phillip's Island crab cakes with tender asparagus and crunchy coleslaw; and a Delmonico rib-eye. There are loads of fish dishes available, too, proving that it's not all bison or bust.
