So close to the gondola you can keep your boots on, this upbeat restaurant is mountainside in The Little Nell. Most of the tavern has big glass windows, and there's also a spacious patio with slopeside views. Wide plank floors and brick walls with dark wood paneling define this spot, which is popular both for its location and hearty surf-n-turf dishes (they also have a stellar raw bar). The menu changes seasonally, and focuses on Colorado ingredients. Two great items you
can count on year-round are Parmesan truffle fries and the Ajax double cheeeburger made with locally raised, grass-fed beef.
