17 Chateau Lane beaver creek


See Website

Splendido has been living up to its name for nearly 20 years now, 17 of them under the leadership of chef David Walford. Today it remains arguably the finest restaurant in Beaver Creek, especially if you happen to believe that great food tastes even better when served in an atmosphere of ivory tablecloths, thick carpeting, and light so flattering that every diner instantly looks 20 years younger. Although the waiters are perfectly prepared to bone your whole Dover sole tableside, many of the main courses feature hearty cuts of meat—buffalo, elk, lamb, rabbit—prepared with a light, sophisticated touch. In season, many dishes deploy various wild mushrooms to wonderful effect. For dessert, soufflés are a must; lemon-blueberry and chocolate fudge were recent standouts.
