dining vail

Following my posts on Vail, several people asked about restaurants... We definitely have our favorites. Sweet Basil was our first stop for dinner.

Terra Bistro...

Terra Bistro serves fitness-conscious dishes and boasts multiple accolades from publications like Gourmet Magazine and the New York Times.

Butterhead lettuce with avocado, balsamic macerated tomatoes, basil aioli, and quinoa... delicious!

A new restaurant, Matsuhisa, was a real treat. Here's the story...

Robert DeNiro was a regular visitor at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills and travelled there often for the dining experience. He reportedly begged Nobu Matshisa to open a restaurant in New York. After years of begging, DeNiro convinced Matsuhisa, and together they opened Nobu in 1993 in Tribeca. Today, there are Nobu restaurants all over the world.

However in Vail, rather than open another Nobu, Matsuhisa is more closely compared to the Beverly Hills original. (Along with Aspen, Athens, and Mykonos) The Matsuhisa Restaurants are privately owned by the Matsuhisa family, while the Nobu Restaurants are co-owned by Nobu, Robert De Niro and friends.

Anyway, the food was spectacular...

Always fun to find a new favorite...
