There's a reason women in high heels are drawn to Leonora for happy hour and dinner, starting with the draw of the circular, crushed-velvet booths that mimic the ceiling-high column of wine bottles in the center of the restaurant. And the lounge-y music and flattering light from the oversized shades filled with round, dim bulbs. But the big draw, for everyone, is the food. Note the simple, fresh preparation of Mediterranean-inspired dishes like charred octopus cooked in
nothing more than paprika, capers, lemon, and olive oil. Or the risottos that mix flavors like passion fruit, mango, cilantro, and scallops. The portions are smaller than at some other upscale ski resorts, but the flavors are big.
