Fodor's Expert Review Game Creek Restaurant
Getting to this restaurant is certainly half the fun, as you must catch a gondola up the mountain, then hop on a snowcat to get across Game Creek Bowl during the winter. During the summer you can travel by shuttle or walk. The Bavarian-style lodge is members-only for lunch, but open to the public for dinner all year and for an outstanding Sunday brunch in summer. Be prepared to linger over a multicourse meal as you enjoy spectacular views of the slopes and the mountains beyond. The menu is prix fixe—you might start with goat cheese burrata followed by duck with fava beans, red lentil dal, and piquillo peppers.
