Sweet Basil

193 Gore Creek Drive, White River National Forest, Vail, CO 81657, USA

Home base for upscale modern American cooking, Sweet Basil has just kept getting better for over 30 years. A thorough remodel a few years ago resulted in an airy, contemporary space. With stone walls and sleek lighting, it’s also even sexier than before. And when the waiter says the inevitable “everything’s good”, he isn’t kidding: the kitchen uses impeccably sourced ingredients, like Anson Mills polenta and Colorado lamb to delicious effect. (Even the wildflower honey is local). The formidable wine list has a nice selection of half bottles.
