Your Guide to Dining and Apres Ski
in Vail, Colorado
Sharing my favorites over the years – updated for 2019
I have been visiting the ski resort in Vail since 1990 (in fact, it is where I first skied in my lifetime). It has remained my favorite mountain destination for all of these years. So much so, that we purchased a home in 2012 and now live there most of the time. There are so many places on this list that have stood the test of time and remain the top choices. Of course, there are closures and openings each year.
One of the best restaurants in the U.S. invests in customer service by taking the staff to Italy every year.
I have had the pleasure to patronize the Barolo Grill in Denver, Colorado for more than 20 years. Of the many constants during those years is an excellent, dare I say exciting, dining experience, convivial atmosphere and low staff turnover. Contributing to all of those is the owners’ commitment to staff training and immersion in Italian culture by organizing an annual trip to Italy.
As a sales professional in the wine industry, and by living in the neighborhood, I have had a “bird’s-eye” view of the growth of the restaurant’s food and wine program. The wine program has particular pedigree, gaining momentum under owner Blair Taylor, who moved on to focus on his wine importing business, to currently being owned by Ryan Fletter, who took the wine program to its current level over the past 2 decades.
