Larkspur

This Vail restaurant is the originator of the Larkburger.


None

Larkspur is always on. Perhaps it’s the friendly nature of the staff, who will happily pour you a martini and feed you frito misto at the striking glass-backed bar. Maybe it’s the delicate origami hummingbirds that flock an entire dining room wall or the subtle Italian lighting or alderwood décor. Most likely, it’s the appeal of the open kitchen and 7,500-bottle, glass-enclosed wine cellar. The restaurant is located inside the Golden Peak Lodge, and at lunchtime it fills with skiers looking to refuel with the all-natural Coleman beef Larkburger—hearty enough to inspire the launch of a casual restaurant by the same name in nearby Edwards. By dinnertime the pace slows, and executive chef Armando Navarro’s dishes take the spotlight.
