We do not typically eat in hotel restaurants, but we were hiking a lot of miles every day and it was just too convenient. Plus, the menu looked really good. Well, we ended up eating every meal at Snowmass Kitchen during our 4-night stay. James and Brad were excellent waiters--super-attentive and friendly. And Brad had tons of helpful information about hiking trails. And the food was truly exceptional. The tagliatelle with mushrooms was out of this world (I almost never get pasta out since I make so much of it at home, but I had read that pasta is good for acclimating to the altitude)--the pasta was cooked to perfection. My husband got the apple cider-marinated pork chop, which was to die for. The most tender, juicy, flavorful pork chop of all time (I got it for dinner the next two nights). Yes, we are creatures of habit, but the variety and creativity of the food was amazing. (Hope you get to go during Palisade Peach season--there was a really great appetizer with house made ricotta, peach pie, and a mille feuille with pistachio pesto--yummmmm). Oh yeah, great salad with radish, beets, goat cheese, champagne vinaigrette. In short, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. (Yes, the breakfast IS pricey, but it was all very good, and the portions are very generous, and free refills on orange juice).
