      1. Splendido's is in Beaver Creek and is amazing. It is one of the few places in the valley that earns it keep. Excellent Food and Services.

        Kelly Liken in vail is very good as well. The food is spot on and truly regional fare. The services is hit or miss. P.S. 50% off entire menu and select wines till June 15

        1. just spent the weekend at vail plaza... we had a very nice experience.

          my favorite fine dining: larkspur, la tour, sweet basil, kelly liken.
          this weekend we did basil and kelly liken (tasting menu)... both solid.

          local: ok, maybe it's my austrian herritage, but i am a sucker for al fresco dining, good unfiltered hefes, und schnitzle mit spaetzle.... i really enjoy alpenrose and pepi's for lunch. we did up the creek for lunch one day and were satisfied (except for soggy fries).
