Beaver Creek, Colorado
Here's where I dine when I go to Beaver Creek.
If you are in the mood for:
Mexican Food, go to
Fiesta's New Mexican Cafe
Don't even waste your time on the others. You will have to take a short drive (from Beaver Creek / Avon) into Edwards, but it is worth it. Great hot sauce...I prefer
the spicy. There is shredded beef at this place, so don't be shy.
Deli, go to
Avon Bakery & Deli
Once again, no need to waste time on the others. This place is it! Certified organic flours used to bake their vast array of
wonderful breads. The sandwiches are out of sight; I love the Italian cold sub on sourdough.
Tips: I would go New York or Chicago. Skip the Blue Moose.
Instead get into the car and go into Avon, which is just down the hill from Beaver Creek.
Chicago-style, go to
If you want wanting an actual taste of Chicago, the go to Zacca Za. There are many places that say they serve
Chicago style pizza and they are usually full of it. This place is for real. Just remember this piece of
advice, a small pizza goes a long way. Plenty of other great stuff on the menu too. Great views, and can be a nicer
dining experience than a regular pizza place.
New York Style, go to
Maybe it's not exactly New York style, but it's close. Lots of other items on the menu, but I have only had the pizza and it
Also pretty reminiscent of NY style. Head over to Edwards and you'll find it next to Fiesta's.
Casual Elegant Dining
The Golden Eagle Inn
This is just a wonderful, casual with elegant atmosphere kind of place! Serving American Cuisine. Try the trout, or the elk!
Ristorante Ti Amo
Great food and great prices. Get the Carciofo alla Griglia, which is "two artichoke halves
grilled to perfection and served with roasted garlic remoulade" for starters. Highlights for me include
Scaloppine all’arancia, "Veal scaloppine sautéed with oranges and celery in a
vodka orange sauce over angel hair pasta", if I'm in the mood for something more simple, the Fettuccine alla Bolognese was
outstanding. Lot's of delicious wines too. Once again, great prices.....especially for the area.
Mirabelle at Beaver Creek
This place serves unbelievable French cuisine. The Maine lobster I had was so good it made me want to cry. To this day, the best wine I ever had
with dinner. Plan on paying around $75-$200 per person.
