458 Vail Valley Drive, Vail, CO 81657
I love to wine and dine, and this is the place to do it in Vail. Larkspur is known for their seasonaly changing menu, delicious cocktails and extensive wine selection. The burgers were soo good, they spun off into their own restaurant, Larkburger, which is now a chain throughout Colorado.
With amazing views up the mountain of Golden Peak and only a short walk from Vail Village, this is the place to see and be seen in Vail. They even feature a market, open during winter ski hours (8am-5pm), where you can get grab-n-go type foods for the day on the slopes or while you wait for your ski lesson.
If you have the time and are able to get a reservation, do not pass up Larkspur during your trip in Vail!
My Favorites: The mushroom risotto is deliciously creamy and perfectly al dente, the menu changes weekly, so be sure and check out what they have online. Best deserts are a tie between the homemade donuts and the chocolate soufle.
Atmosphere: Elegenat and modern. Jeans and ski-wear are ok during lunch and breakfast hours, however dinner boasts a dressier scene. Located at the base of Golden Peak ski resort on Vail mountain.
Cost: Starters priced beginning around $13.50 per plate and entrees are as much as $49.50 for the ribeye (most expensive item). Their webiste showcases the featured weekly menu with pricing.
