The Emerson Grill has been serving critically acclaimed local & organic home-style Northern Italian cuisine in the historic Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture since 2005. This cornerstone restaurant includes the Emerson Grill (main dining room), Emerson Grill North (wine bar), ECCE Fine Art Gallery (private dining room), and an on/off-site catering company. 


Owner, Robin Chopus, created The Emerson Grill as Bozeman's Neighborhood Restaurant - a place for local fare, art, and community.  With accolades including "Best of Bozeman", "Top Ten" Restaurant in Bozeman, and a feature in Delta's InFlight Magazine, prove that indeed, this humble business has blossomed into one of the best in the community.
