Best Of: Burger
Larkburgers are no longer only a Vail-Valley exclusive. Come March, the gourmet burger joint opens its doors in Boulder. A spot in the Denver Tech Center is slated for a fall opening. Why do people crave those burgers? “Because they are really tasty,” says Adam Baker, co-owner of Larkburger. “And we use only the best all-natural ingredients.” Walk into the Edwards eatery at 12:30 and you’ll find a crowd, each person hankering for his or her own favorite. Though beef burgers top the chart, tuna burgers with a zippy wasabi-ginger sauce and a zing of cilantro are popular, too.
Walk into the Boot come apres time and the Dusty Boot in Beaver Creek is filled with burger-munching and beer-drinking skiers and snowboarders. You can’t beat the deal, and the fries are fantastic.
Those downvalley know that Broadway Cafe’s burger night is no secret. The Eagle restaurant serves classic New American cuisine, and has no qualms about dishing out a perfectly cooked glazed salmon next to a big, juicy burger.
Those looking for a little cross-country-skiing action should head up to Tennessee Pass Cookhouse at Ski Cooper for lunch on weekends. The restaurant has a great buffalo burger stuffed with feta cheese.
