The Left Bank is authentic French cuisine at its best. Appetizers include escargots, French onion soup and lobster bisque. Entrees are similarly traditional, though they make liberal use of fresh local ingredients (note the roasted rack of Colorado lamb). Seafood fans will swoon over the bouillabaisse of lobster, shrimp, scallops and mussels. Meat lovers will marvel at the Veal Rossini, a milk-fed veal chop topped with a generous helping of sauteed foie gras. Seasonal specialties include quail, halibut, steaks and more. Save room for the elegant desserts as well: choose from peaches on puff pastry, chocolate souffle, sorbet and others. See website for full menu, newsletter and wine list.
Larkspur is comfort. Dinners begin with appetizers like Celery Bisque and Salmon Carpaccio, proceed into entrees such as Black Truffle Lasagna and Porcini-Dusted Beef Tenderloin, and end with desserts like the Peanut Butter Brownie Napoleon or the 23 Karat Carrot Cake. Lunch is similarly great, but features a number of gourmet pizzas and sandwiches (as well as a whole new selection of desserts). A kids menu features high-end takes on burgers, mac & cheese and pepperoni pizza. A special bar menu brings out the kid in all of us (try the Truffle-Parmesan French Fries or DK's Texas Chili). The wine list is positively expansive, and many entries are available by the glass or the half bottle. Pop into Larkspur's onsite market for a range of specialty food items such as sandwiches, soups, salads, cheeses, rotisserie game birds, smooked meat and more. See website for menus, wine list and everything else.
When it is prime rib that you crave, make a bee line for Lancelot. Choose from the 8-oz Knight's Cut, the 10-oz Sir Lancelot Cut, or the 12-oz King Arthur's Cut. All are served with a baked potato and a generous splash of au jus. An international array of appetizers are available, ranging from stuffed jalapenos to breaded brie and tuna sashimi. The other entrees contribute to this worldly flavor as well (try the BBQ beef ribs, wiener schnitzel, cajun style trout, or coconut-crusted seabass). Wash it all down with a selection or two from the impressive wine list. See website for full menu, wine list, group accomodations and more.
La Bottega is Vail Village's version of a homey, neighborhood Italian restaurant. Locals and travelers alike return time and again for the distinctive cuisine. Rustic pizzas are fired in stone ovens, daily specials are scrawled on a chalk board, and wine flows freely at the wine bar.
Juniper bills itself as a restaurant specializing in "contemporary American fusion," and one look at the menu confirms the claim. Appetizers such as the Foie Gras with Funnel Cake and the Tuna Tower with Mango and Avocado leave no doubt that innovation is the name of the game here. Entrees include BBQ Spiced Alaskan King Salmon with Eggplant Parmesan, as well as Baby Back Ribs with Spicy Thai Slaw. Other specialties include veal scaloppini, lamb t-bones, soft-shell crab and mushroom and truffle risotto. In the mood for something less refined? Opt for the "Mike's Burger" with String Fries. The wine list and dessert menu are similarly impressive. See website for reservations, photos, menus, wines and more. This place opens daily at 5.30pm.
