A location that would normally only be open for the summer months, will be welcoming customers for the whole month of December and January.
“We are happy to greet all of our loyal clientele of the area and newcomers, of course. The state of Montana has given us throughout the years great satisfaction and our customers have brought us a lot of joyful moments. For this reason, we have decided to experience the Holiday season at Ox Pasture, in the hope to create more memorable moments”.
Said Philip Guardione, chef and owner of Piccola Cucina.
Occupying a historical Red Lodge building on Broadway in Red Lodge, Montana, Ox Pasture is an inviting spot for people to gather. Conceived of by a fourth generation Montanan and his wife, whose vision was to create a place where everyone was welcome, that supported the food & retail culture of Red Lodge’s historical main street, and that focused on the produce of the region.
For this season, we welcome a pop-up by Chef Philip Guardione and his Sicilian kitchen, Piccola Cucina. Philip cooks authentic Sicilian food which is an amalgam of Italian cuisine influenced by all the cultures that found Sicily as their crossroads. Simple, fresh ingredients authentically prepared to suit the local environment of Red Lodge. A true Sicilian, raised in the kitchen of his Grandmother and in the shadow of Mount Etna, Philip cooks with joy and expertise bringing the fresh and cozy flavors Sicilians expect to the table. The energy and hospitality of Philip’s team is exuberant & family-like.
At Ox Pasture at Piccola Cucina, we are at the heart of Red Lodge’s artisan food scene, the locally raised world class beef is featured alongside produce and herbs raised in area farms. We work directly with the local farmers and ranchers to obtain the freshest and most seasonally appropriate ingredients.
