Tuck in for Vail Restaurants
If there's anything you won't do in Vail, it's go hungry. Much like how Vail's environment and activities make this place one giant playground, the Vail restaurants make it a culinary joyride. Vail restaurants run the gamut in both cuisine and atmosphere. You'll find overstuffed sandwiches from unpretentious delis on one end and on the other, five-course dinners complete with mountain sunset views. No matter where you go, you'll chow down on delicious fare that suits whatever you're craving.
Is it time to eat? When talking about Vail restaurants, the answer is always yes. Start your day with an expertly brewed cup of coffee and breakfast sandwich. Take a midday break from the skiing or hiking to grab lunch at a burger joint or sandwich shop, and then let all the afternoon activities work up another appetite for an après ski snack on a mountainside terrace. Next swap out your skis for steaks at a European-inspired restaurant with free-range prime rib and filet mignon. And saving room for dessert should go without saying!
Be Adventurous at Vail Restaurants
Remember when we called Vail restaurants a culinary joyride? We weren't exaggerating with the terminology. Eating out in Vail is like gourmet globetrotting where you wake up in the Rocky Mountains but then find your day takes you to Mexico, Germany, France, Switzerland, India, Japan, China; the adventure never ends. Many Vail restaurants have made a name for themselves over the years, whether they're the chateaus with gourmet chefs giving orders from the kitchen, destination diners or returning visitors' favorite grillrooms that complete their trip to town. When planning your meals in Vail, decide which eateries you want to visit and when. Most of Vail's restaurants are in Vail Village and Lionshead, making it easy to check out the surrounding shops on foot before or after you eat.
