Vail Valley -- Sushi, Fish Tacos and Lobster

Had some good sushi and excellent squid salad, spicy tunatini and potstickers this week at Foxnut in Beaver Creek. Pad thai was just okay. Server was excellent, but it took way too long to get the food. Would go again, though.

Fish tacos at Mango's in Red Cliff were good on two different occasions. Others in the group had steak tacos and ground beef tacos that were reportedly good, as well. Liked the old place much better for the funkiness, but this is still a good place. Last Sunday they had a dreadlocked acoustic guitarist and singer on the third level deck. A great way to spend a beautiful afternoon.

We picked up some frozen Australian lobster tails from Costco to see how they would taste. We split them and grilled them and they were wonderful. Much better than anticipated. Very tender, moist and tasty. Costco keeps coming through.

On the non-seafood front, we had the wonderful pretzel-crusted pork chops at Grouse Mountain Grill the other night. Excellent, as expected. Beef tenderloin was also good. Service was first-rate, as it should be at these prices.

Stopped by Eat! for a late lunch. Had the olive boat and a three-cheese plate, along with a sampling of four of the paninis, which were new on the menu for us. Everything was good. This is a great place for an al fresco meal on a nice warm day.

Eating options continue to be good in the Eagle Valley.
