While I haven't tried every restaurant in the area, I can only imagine this one sets the standard. The interior is striking, with high stone walls, warmed by a fire place in the middle, stunning art work on walls and ceiling, and a beautiful cozy bar. While I was there in summer, and it was a bit dark inside, I can only imagine that after a day of skiing it would be just what the Dr. ordered. The food did not disappoint, though some appetizers a bit scant. Duck prosciutto had me salivating, but I wanted more! The pork entre was enormous, however, enough for two, and deeeelish. I made a whole meal of apps.... Scallops, perfectly done and delectable. Service was top notch, best we have had in a long, long while.
