Beano's Cabin, Beaver Creek, CO

Beano's Cabin Restaurant Review

: This cabin is hardly modest or rustic, but rather a hand-hewn log lodge nestled in an aspen grove, with large windows, high ceilings, an open kitchen and an array of Western artifacts and fabrics. In winter, Beano's is a private ski-in, ski-out luncheon club and a dinner adventure open to the public. Snowcat-drawn sleighs depart frequently from Rendezvous Cabin at the Beaver Creek base for the 20-minute ride, which --- wool blankets notwithstanding --- is just about as long as most people want to be out on a Colorado winter night. Summer access is by tractor-pulled wagon, horseback or van. Though transportation varies, the menu format does not: plan on a five-course prix-fixe meal with optional (read: non-inclusive) wine pairings (a three-course variant is available for younger children). Starters might include vegetables with candied walnuts in mascarpone-poppy seed dressing, fried rabbit with honey and horseradish aïoli and/or whiskey-glazed foie gras over plum terrine, followed by a palate-cleanser. Next comes elegant entrées like slow-cooked lamb cheeks with olive-lemon gremolata and shelling beans or venison flank steak accompanied by corn hash and braised peaches; there's always a vegetarian option as well. And desserts showcase Colorado’s seasonal bounty, ranging from goat cheese crêpes with pear compote in a port reduction to a trio of lemon mousse, olive oil cake and cucumber-melon sorbet.
