We stayed at the Brighton Lodge for a week of skiing and boarding. The only real food options there are Molly's pub, who does an absolutely horrible job of even making basic pub grub, and cafeterias.
Disenchanted with the options at the ski area, we drove the few miles down to the Silver Fork lodge for lunch one day. I had a roasted beef salad and soup and my buddy had the vegetarian lasagna. All I can say is amazing! You know there is a high quality chef working in the back when food of this caliber is delivered. The staff were absolutely outgoing.
We came back the next day to watch the Super Bowl. The chef had a great Super Bowl munchy menu. I had to try the Piedmontese New York Strip Steak though. I ordered medium rare and the waiter came out to announce the chef was unhappy with the steak; it was overlooked a little. Hey we all make mistakes, but to take the time to make a whole new $34 piece of meat says something. The steak was easily the best I have ever had. Later, I ordered the Chorizo tacos. Meticulous deliciousness! From a Texan, A++ on both dishes.
If you are up at Brighton or Solitilude for a day on the mountain, stop into the Silver Fork. There is no way you can regret it.
