1. AmanganiJackson Hole, Wyo. Guarded by the towering Teton Mountains and overlooking the stunning Snake River Valley, Amangani's location in Jackson Hole is among its best assets. But its staff is just as popular. One guest wanted black cod for his wedding dinner, and Amangani called a contact in Alaska to take his boat out and fish for it when it was both out of season and unavailable anywhere in the U.S. That's what we call going above and beyond.
