Vail / Beaver Creek / Avon CO - where do the locals go?

Bob Dobalina | Dec 9, 2008 07:46 AM

Thanks to BlueOx for directing me to the Southwest board for questions on this area -

New Englander heading to Vail (technically Beaver Creek Resort) for the week for a friend's wedding - never been before, and looking at the posts, seeing lots of great recommendations for really nice high-end restaurants.

But I was wondering, where's the good chow that's a) where the local folks go to hide out from the tourists; b) where they DON'T have truffles, aioli or truffle aioli on the menu (not that there's anything wrong with that); c) where the food's super fresh, maybe leaning to being veggie-friendly without necessarily being fancy fine dining; d) any combination of the above?

Above all, I really would like to find places that are off the beaten track that a friend might tell me about, which Conde Nast(y) avoids.

Thanks in advance and happy to swap Boston knowledge in return. ;)
