Recently, we had a good fortune to dine at the Fawn Brook Inn, and the rewards for dining there linger long after you've gone. Quite possibly, this is the most charming restaurant in Colorado. Tucked off a busy little highway that leads into Estes Park, the restaurant offers an experience that you can only find traveling in Europe And while we have marvelous restaurants in Boulder, many are quite similar, high-tech and small plates, but almost no restaurant has the incredible feel of the Fawn Brook and its mountain setting. I imagine in summer it would be breath-taking, but on a chilly February night, with the snow falling, it was absolutely magical. The well-prepared food, is the stick-to-your ribs fare that I grew up with as a child. My Dad was a chef, an old world chef. He could cook your socks off. The food at the Fawn Brook is brought to your table by properly trained staff, in a very warm and relaxed manner. You needn't rush through all the courses set before you...and the ambiance so remarkable that were I younger and looking for a place to have a wedding reception, this would be the place. If you check the menu on their website beforehand, you'll know exactly what dishes are created in the kitchen and a fair idea of the price. You needn't arrive shocked by the entrees or the cost of each dish. You get what you pay for and at the Fawn Brook Inn, what you get is a memorable experience. It's my new best favorite and we can't wait to return.
