Modern American in Breckenridge

One of Breck’s favorites, this restored 1886 Victorian churns out creative mountain fare such as blackberry elk and braised buffalo ribs with tomatillos, roasted chilies and polenta. Fresh and delicious, it’s definitely worth a splurge, or hit happy hour (4pm to 6pm) for $5 plates paired with wine.

You can dine in the oh-so-burgundy dining room or, preferably, on the three tiered patios out front when the weather cooperates. Book ahead.
