Any great food suggestions for Breckenridge and nearby towns?

We'll be spending next week (8/22) in Breckenridge and would love to know where we could find some wonderful food to eat in Breckenridge (or Frisco, Dillon, Keyston). For us that includes delis to 'hole in the wall' to fine dining. We love a good buy, but are also willing to pay to experience a fine meal. One of the reasons we travel is to search out tasty food. Our favorites include Continental, Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, Japanese, and good old American comfort food. Most of all, we love restaurants that use fresh, local ingredients.

Suggestions/tips are appreciated!

My favorite place in Breck is the Columbine Cafe for breakfast or lunch. A great selection and everything is great - not too expensive. A great deal on the other side of the county is Nozawa in Dillon, just down from the City Market (big grocery store). They have a great "bento box" lunch that's not totally authentic, but has a little of everything, sushi roll, soup, etc. so you'll be stuffed. Relish is great for an upscale dinner and Salt Creek has good steaks & BBQ. LOTS of great eating in Breck!

We didn't think the "fine dining" in Breckenridge was all that fine -- don't get me wrong, it was good, but not "destination good". That said, we liked Columbine Cafe, too -- I liked it more than the rest of my family did -- and ate there several times. We had a nice dinner at Blue River Bistro -- again, good, not great, and a decent "bar" dinner at Downstairs at Eric's.

Thanks, BobbyMom and sf7307. Appreciate your feedback. We'll check out your suggestions. We do understand that being in the mountains doesn't provide the same kind of foodie options one can find in a city such as San Francisco, Chicago, or NY so no worries there. We just like to find the best of what any location has to offer even if that means the higest rating it would garner would be in the low teens on Gayot

We liked the Blue Spruce Inn in Frisco.

lovebug, exactly! For my morning coffee (my family was skiing, and I don't ski), I enjoyed The Crown Cafe -- a very comfortable place, and local...
