What can one say about the Ritz? Ritzy it is. Beautiful it is. Pricey, you bet. But oh what a wonderful place to be. The view was just breathtaking from every direction inside and out. The outside wedding backdrop was the beautiful mountainside of skiers coming right down very quietly behind the couple saying their wedding vows. It was like seeing two beautiful shows simultaneously for the price of one. After retreating inside for the reception, we dined in front of a a humongous picture window of cable cars coming up and down the mountainside. If the windows had been open, you could almost reach out and touch them. The food tasted like something from a different world. Creamy potato soup for starters and I ordered the Halibut and my wife ordered the Steak of which both were presented beautifully with either Kale, just the way I like it and or Green Beans cooked just right with creamy mashed potatoes along with red and white wine and of course champagne for the toast to the bride and groom..
