Allred's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The only way in or out of this wood-beamed mountaintop eatery is via a gondola, which glides upward to the sky-high Saint Sophia station, situated at a lofty elevation of 10,551 feet. Executive chef Mike Regruts and his kitchen cohorts prepare both elegant classics such as lobster bisque or Wagyu carpaccio and globally influenced creations, from miso black cod with shiitake duxelles in lemongrass-shrimp broth to rack of lamb with olives, goat cheese and tomato-eggplant jam. It’s a suitable mix for the star-studded après-ski crowd and local and visiting epicures. If you feel like having lighter fare, try the sashimi ceviche, tempura gulf shrimp or a bowl of butternut squash soup. Make sure to check out the nightly chef’s menu, complete with wine pairings, and for post-dinner relaxation, belly up to the bar and bend your ear to the stylings of the house pianist.
