AMAZING GRACE NATURAL EATERYBreckenridge, Colorado
When in Breck, be sure to check out Amazing Grace Natural Eatery. Known for their organic, vegan, and healthy fare, you can find this restaurant on the corner of Lincoln and French, just two blocks east of Main Street. While the exterior is hard to miss with its canary-yellow clapboard siding, the front door is charming yet unassuming and leads directly into a cozy and comfy interior. Once inside, be sure to order the ever-popular breakfast burrito and vegan chocolate chip cookies (before they sell out)!
SNAKE RIVER SALOONKeystone, Colorado
This saloon steakhouse has been a Keystone institution and local favorite since 1975. The wood paneling on the walls and ceiling and a copper-top bar set the stage for bartenders who have long been known to spit fire. Several years ago, however, the fire department finally took umbrage, and bartenders are now forced to step outside to blow their flaming shots of 151. This spot is perfect for happy hour, which includes live music and dancing. If the flames don’t fan your fire, then come for the food. A must-try is the Filet Oscar: a bacon-wrapped filet with Alaskan king crab, topped with béarnaise sauce, and finished with asparagus spears.Learn More

What was once the personal home of Keystone’s founding family, is now serving up weekly four-course menus full of delicious cuts of meat and savory seafood. At $75 per person, the Ski Tip is a bit of a splurge but well worth it thanks to the changing menus, welcoming ambiance, and thoughtful service. In fact, it is listed as one of the country’s top restaurants, having earned the #6 spot on OpenTable’s Top 100 list.
