One new participant this year, the notorious Matsuhisa Vail, located in the Solaris building.  Matsuhisa Restaurant Manager, Jordan Harrill, stated “Matsuhisa Vail is excited to be part of this year’s Restaurant Week.  This will be our first time participating and there is already a lot of excitement to see locals and visitors alike.”  Matsuhisa felt their Bento Box offering was a great fit for the events $20.14 list as it’s “a great way to try some of [Matsuhisa’s] most popular dishes in a traditional Japanese way and [to] get a great meal at the same time”.   From Matsuhisa’s Bento Box offering to some of our favorite local staples such as the Ludwig’s breakfast buffet, La Tour’s $20.14 entrée selections or the famous Crimpster at Hooked in Beaver Creek, the offerings this year are spectacular!  The list of restaurants and specials seems to be especially creating a buzz this year.  Vail Valley local and foodie, Lori Wellins is planning on starting out at Terra Bistro this year and referenced Restaurant Week as one of her favorites of the year.  Wellins further stated, “love the opportunity to sample the Valleys "best" at a great value.”  Whatever $20.14 special you opt for this year, there is one thing that’s for sure and that is, it will pair perfectly with Vail and Beaver Creek’s stunning autumn backdrop which truly began flourishing this past weekend.  The current fall scenery of the Rockies Mountains truly sets the stage for an unparalleled culinary event this year.
Beyond the new $20.14 offerings and participants, also new this year is the Top Shelf Harvest event taking place in Lionshead on Saturday, September 27th, from 2-7pm.  A boutique outdoor event featuring tastings of Colorado born spirits, including some local to the Vail Valley, enhanced by Vail restaurant samplings; this event folds perfectly into the Restaurant Week event and provides even more reason for foodies near and far to travel to Vail for a full weekend of flavor.  Clare Hefferen of Callossum Creative, the creative agency for the Harvest event, said, “Vail is absolutely gorgeous in the fall. Between Top Shelf Harvest and Restaurant  Week we have the perfect weekend lineup.”
Once again sincere thanks are due to the Town of Vail, Beaver Creek Resort Company, Vail Resorts and the Vail Valley Foundation for playing a critical role in supporting Restaurant Week both this year and last.  We can’t wait for everyone to get out there and enjoy all that Vail and Beaver Creek villages have to offer.  And don’t forget to fit in that autumn hike – it’ll make some room for more tasting!
