I'm returning to Vail/Beaver Creek after a 12 year absence. I'd love recommendations on great places to go for dinner, lunch, drinks, and really good pancakes.
A more specific question: Splendido - when last I lived in the area as a college student I supported my hiking/biking habit by hostessing here. I'd love to have dinner there, but only if my fellow 'hounds deem it chow-worthy. I don't want to rely on my memory as my tastes were much simpler (and less adventurous then). Is it worth the expense?
If not Splendido, where else would you recommend for our "splurge" dinner?
Thanks in advance, I'll happily return the favor with Boston-area recommendations!
