The Inaugural Event Kicks Off This Fall September 27th – October 6th
As if guests need another reason to dine in Vail and Beaver Creek, this fall they can enjoy the autumn scenery while indulging in breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner specials all set at $20.13. From September 27th – October 6th participating restaurants will offer an array of specials, each priced at $20.13 and all showcasing the diverse culinary offerings available throughout the Vail and Beaver Creek Villages.

With restaurant week events popping up in cities all across the nation, what makes Vail Beaver Creek Restaurant Week stand above the rest? Well it’s not just the altitude. A first of its kind, this high country culinary celebration will span across two world class mountain resorts, Vail and Beaver Creek. Featuring special offers at over 50 restaurants and 10 lodges, the event’s inaugural year will provide no shortage of variety or value; appealing to area visitors and locals alike. Matt Morgan of Sweet Basil agreed, stating “when you look around at the number of fabulous restaurant offerings in the two villages it is clear that an event like this is long overdue.” Further, the stunning autumn views provided by the Valley’s Rocky Mountains afford the perfect pair to each delicious bite and provide a Restaurant Week backdrop unmatched by any other.

Though the two mountain villages have previously combined efforts on a handful of Valley-wide events, Vail
Beaver Creek Restaurant Week represents a new and truly special collaboration effort between the two communities. To begin, the idea spawned from the Valley local restaurants, which remain the driving force behind the event’s development and success. But beyond the efforts of the local restaurant community, the realization of this unique culinary event would not be possible without the continued support of a few key local partners. The Town of Vail, Beaver Creek Resort Company, Vail Resorts, the Vail Valley Foundation and the Vail Valley Partnership have all played a critical role in getting Restaurant Week off the ground. Local restaurant owner Brian Nolan, one of the event producers, commented “we are stunned by the overwhelming support and participation we’ve received from the local restaurant and resort community.”

It only seems appropriate that an event born from such community cooperation and support intends to give a little something back. Therefore, on October third, 10% of all participating restaurant sales will be donated to this year’s selected non-profit beneficiary, the Vail Valley Foundation. Organization President, Ceil Folz, offered the following thoughts on the week: “Not only is it going to be a terrific week, but participants will truly be able to sample the culinary best of both resorts through one event. I hope everyone will take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.”
