Restaurants with interesting game choices within approx 1 hr of Vail?

Hey Mountain Hounds!

I'll be visiting Vail for vacation in March and I'm looking for recommendations on where I can try some unique dishes featuring wild (or farm raised) game. Any type of restaurant is fine, but I'd like to have some choices--maybe buffalo, elk, venison, quail, etc. I'm willing to drive about an hour or so from the resort area, so if you know of anywhere unique, I'm all ears!

Thanks in advance for any tips!

    The Hearthstone in Breckenridge has excellent food. I'd recommend the Elk.

      Lord Gore Restaurant in the Manor Vail Lodge at the base of Golden Peak also serves game. Possibly also Ludwig's in the Sonnenalp. Bot pricey but well regarded.

      Golden Peak Restaurant
      , Vail, CO 81657

      Lord Gore Restaurant
      595 Vail Valley Dr, Vail, CO 81657

        Pepi's, in the heart of Vail, has an extensive game menu in its Antlers Room. It was once very good, but I can't honestly tell you how it is now because its been several years since I ate there.
