Restaurants and Shops in Vail

At the end of January, our group of 8 - 10 enjoyed the following restaurants. A nice feature for us was that we made reservations the day of.
  • Larkspur (seating closer to the open kitchen is better)
  • The Left Bank (staff seems to have less attitude these days & they now accept credit cards; excellent food - we think the best in Vail & don't miss, or share, the chocolate souffle)
  • Campo de Fiori (noisy, fun, good for groups, a happening place)
  • Sweet Basil (our all-time favourite; we always have at least one lunch here - must get there by 2:30 pm. The lamb sliders were a hit as well as the beet salad with goat cheese dressing. I loved the lump crab & bow-tie pasta appetizer for dinner. Others raved over the striped bass.)
  • Would like to try Bistro Fourteen (on mountain @Eagle's Nest) next time for lunch.....has anyone tried it?
Favourite shopping destinations:
  • Annie's : home accessories, every candle fragrance you've ever heard of, amazing collection of dishes.....you can spend an hour just reading the greeting cards. One year my friend, Pam, followed me around the store noting my ooh's and ahh's and then went back the next day to buy me those objects for my birthday.
  • Pepi's: Blew my "clothing diet" here. Make sure you go up to the second floor and search out the sales rack at the back of the store.
