Elway's Vail Restaurant Review

: Joining the flagship location in posh Cherry Creek, its splashy sibling in The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, and a branch at Denver International Airport, the Vail Village outpost of John Elway’s mainstay restaurant sticks to its winning formula. A clubby décor and lively bar scene indoors and out meet a classic steakhouse menu garnished with flourishes courtesy of longtime culinary director Tyler Wiard. That means you can indulge in signatures like charred red pepper soup and steak tacos as well as hand-cut New York strips or bone-in rib-eyes with blue cheese butter. Follow with the house-made Ding Dongs. Pair your meal with a selection from the wine list that’s deep in trophies from France and California.
