Description: The Blue Plate opened December of 2007 and instantly gained a following of tourist and locals alike. Recently, we grew out of our small space and moved to a larger location and expanded the menu. Located just down the hill from Beaver Creek you can enjoy Schnitzel everyday, all natural Colorado steaks, fondue, and the numerous popular dishes Chef Adam serves up that have been a staple to the Vail Valley.

“Nice evening, decent food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I liked the decor and we got a nice circular booth seat which was covered in suede and cozy. Blue Plate is a nice change from a lot of the typical burger and mexican restaurants you get around ski resorts. I had the Blue salad and the crispy artichokes appetizer (with other veggies too in a tempura type batter) and both were good and my husband had a good steak. If you like desserts they have at least 6 choices. Prices were reasonable also.

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We were trapped in Avon by a closure of I-70 due to weather. Had a wonderful dinner. My wife had a trout almondine special that was excellent and I had the chateaubriand for one which I really enjoyed - and I am not particularly fond of steaks. We had a table so that we could watch evening come over mountains with a bottle of wine. The waiter was very knowledgeable on the offerings and we appreciated his recommendations. On balance, it was nice to be trapped in Avon and we would certainly return to the Blue Plate.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We have been eating at the Blue Plate since the place opened in its old location across the street in Christy Lodge. The new restaurant is incredibly warm and welcoming. We enjoyed yet another meal there last week, near the end of our annual ski vacation. Everything from the appetizer to the wine was excellent. Highly recommended for a memorable outing with your significant other. See you next year, Adam and Elli!

“Great New Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The last time we visited this restaurant it was across the street in the Christy Lodge. The food was always good but the new location and decor elevates the restaurant to a new level. If you will be dining without children say so and you will be seated in a quiet area. Our party sampled many apps, entrees and deserts and all were excellent. Nice wine list with good values. Service was excellent and chef came out and visited after dinner. The chef does a great job with classic comfort food without trying to be over-the-top creative - just the way I prefer. We love this place and will return whenever in the area.
