With spacious glass windows and track lighting, this sleek, sophisticated space in the Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa looks as if it belongs in a big city. Only the fireplace reminds you that this is Vail. The menu focuses on contemporary American cuisine that throws in a few Asian, Mediterranean, and Southwestern influences. Ahi tartare with avocado, passion fruit, and wasabi vinaigrette, and cornmeal-crusted Rocky Mountain trout with sweet potato and asparagus hash are
headliners; organic produce and free-range meat and poultry are used whenever possible.
