AE TSM Tomato Basil Scramble DT 1-18-08

Breakfast: The French Press, Edwards

The meal: “They have a lovely tomato omelet. Fluffy, fresh, very flavorful without being heavy.”

Lunch: Smiling Moose Deli, Edwards

The meal: “I like the soup and sandwich combo. It’s fast and tasty and not greasy.”

Dinner: La Scala, Eagle

The meal: “Anything with pine nuts. They seem authentically Southern Italian and they have fresh ingredients.”

Breakfast: The Bookworm of Edwards, Edwards

The meal: “The crepe with ham, jelly and cheese. I pretty much like everything about it. I’ve never really had a crepe with ham and jelly in it. It reminds me of something called the Monte Cristo. I really like it a lot.”

Lunch: Chap’s Grill and Chophouse, Vail

The meal: “My favorite would have to be the vegetable panini with a side of portabello mushroom fries. They’re deep fried in tempura batter mixed with Fat Tire and tossed in pepper flakes, parsley, truffle oil and parmesan cheese. They’re delicious.”

Dinner: Chap’s Grill and Chophouse, Vail

The meal: “My favorite is the buffalo ribeye. I’m a big meat-eater. I get the same side: The portobello mushroom. It goes great with it. The thing about the buffalo ribeye: They have all different kinds of sauces that are derivatives of veal demiglaze.”

Breakfast: Loaded Joe’s, Avon

The meal: “Just one of the breakfast burritos. Easy. Quick. Reminds me of San Diego.”

Lunch: Route 6 Cafe, Eagle-Vail

The meal: “Corn beef and hash, chicken-fried steak. Just heavy, hearty and you can get a Bloody Mary too if you want.”

Dinner: Nozawa, West Vail

The meal: “The Dragon Roll. Smoked eel. Good flavors, smoked, just falls apart when you go to eat it. Some Purple Haze sake is good with anything with sushi. Can’t beat it.”
