A Foodie’s Day in Vail

Make the most of one day in this wintry destination

In Vail for just one day? No problem. Here’s our handy guide on how to eat really, really well in the windy destination breakfast through dinner.

Breakfast

For a solid start to your day, beeline to The Little Diner. As the name implies, the space is snug and the setup is simple—a three-sided bar with stools wraps around an open kitchen—but the breakfast staples, ranging from the famous dutch baby pancakes to huevos rancheros, are dependably delicious.

Lunch

Got a hankering for meat? Then it’s Moe’s Original BBQ you can’t miss. Owned by three Alabama natives, this popular spot does all the basics right and proper by smoking the meats in-house with fruit woods, blending their sauce from scratch, and serving everything with a healthy dose of warm, Southern hospitality.

Dinner

Nearer the village center, Matsuhisa by chef Nobu Matsuhisa offers a dimly-lit, swanky spot to sample pristine sushi and inventive Japanese plates, including broiled sea bass with truffle, soft shell crab spring rolls, and yellowtail tataki.
