Chef Tom Gay whips together his own delicious brand of New American cuisine, with Italy playing a heavy hand.. The Scene Maxfield Parish meets Martha Stewart in this chic Vail restaurant. Hanging lamps adorn the ceilings and huge bouquets of silk flowers spill out of their vases. The entire staff meets before dinner to discuss points of improvement and after to talk about how the evening went. This dedication to service shows--not stuffy, but definitely professional
The Food You'll find Colorado lamb atop potato gnocchi and a pan roasted Atlantic salmon served with an Asian vegetable tortellini. The chicken breast is pan seared in a tangy mustard demi-glace and served with horseradish mashed potatoes that complement perfectly. The tender swordfish, crusted with peppercorn, is served in a complex sherry jus. But the accompaniment, fried shoestring potatoes, felt out of place and a bit bland. For appetizers, stay clear of the crab spring roll--good, but not as excellent as other appetizers such as the sweetly rich butternut squash soup.
