I had a thought a couple of weeks ago - and didn't even realize that it would soon be a reality. I was down in the Old Sawmill District neighborhood near Ogren Park and I was thinking about how there really wasn't a place to eat. I know, Dog & Bicycle is right there, but I'm talking about a restaurant for the area. It seems like any place to eat would keep busy just from the amount of people living right there - plus foot traffic from PaddleHeads' games.....and the new building for a tech company that's being built right in that area. I didn't know it at the time, but a restaurant is set to open behind Dog & Bicycle - maybe as early as next week.

Missoulians will soon be able to have dinner (and a beverage thanks to the beer and wine license) at Boxcar - a French inspired bistro. The new restaurant will play off of the location and history of the area - think sawmills and old trains. An article in The Missoulian quotes restaurant manager Ben Burda: "The backbone influence will be a throwback to where the mill boss would want to visit on a date night in the '20s when this place was active and hoppin' like it used to be. We want to give it that 'Roaring '20s' vibe. We'll have a strong French wine program and a French beer program and then from there branch down to more relevant to now, so not stodgy French."

Dog & Bicycle has actually been working off of a limited menu for a couple of months as the kitchen has been remodeled and will serve both Dog & Bicycle and Boxcar. Another cool thing is the beer and wine license will open up Dog & Bicycle to serve alcohol for lunch.

Boxcar will seat about 45 people, feature some outdoor seating, and they hope to open on May 4th. They're located at 875 Wyoming St.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
