While Colorado might be best known for it’s 14’ers, ski resorts and “rocky mountain high”, we also have some pretty amazing food. This list of The 15 Best Restaurants in Colorado features farm-to-table eateries, long running favorites and hometown hangouts, all which embrace the culture and cuisine of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Once referred to at a “cowboy town”, Denver’s food scene historically has featured meat, meat and more meat in gigantic portions. These days however, we are seeing more organic, ethnic and vegetarian eateries popping up all over the state adding more variety for us “foodies” to choose from. This list of The 15 Best Restaurants in Colorado features a mix of both old and new eateries ranging from fine dining to favorite local hangouts. What they all have in common is that they are all essential to Colorado’s food culture. In fact, our very own The Last Steep has made the list! Named after the owner’s favorite ski run, the Last Steep has become a favorite local hangout and family friendly restaurant. Featuring great tasting American food in a fun pub atmosphere, the Last Steep has has won Crested Butte’s awards of Best Hamburger and Best Bloody Mary more than once. Open year round (yes, even during the off-season) The Last Steep is a Crested Butte favorite and definitely deserves making this list.
