Elway's Vail restaurant rumored to be headed for Wildflower in Lodge at Vail

Nobu Matsuhisa said to be eyeing Solaris at Vail

By now you've no doubt read or heard that Hall of Fame NFL quarterback John Elway and his business partner plan to open a third Elway's restaurant in Vail by the end of the year. The Denver Post's Penny Parker broke the story this morning and the Vail Daily followed up.

Both of the papers reported the restaurant will take over an existing space, probably in Vail Village. Fresh from the restaurant rumor mill – and for what it's worth – I'm hearing that space will be in the Wildflower at the Lodge at Vail.

That would be interesting given the heavy, highly manly décor of Elway's steakhouses in both Cherry Creek and the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Denver. The Wildflower has a light, alpine ambiance that's lovely and blends well with one of Vail's most venerable lodging properties, but it's a little lost in a bygone resort era (think Tavern on the Green in Central Park) – especially in a ski town striving for new-millennium relevance and vibrancy.

While many Colorado football fans likely care more about Elway's ability to turn around the sad-sack Denver Broncos as the team's new executive vice president of football operations, I think his restaurant will be a great addition to the Vail dining scene, which has been taking some hits lately for a certain sameness and pricey predictability.

The fantastically redone Vail Village deserves some new, iconic dining experiences. Just consider a splash of color and a little bit of a mountain motif in the Vail Elway's, John. Now go out and draft a dominant pass-rushing defensive end.

And as long as I'm dishing out the restaurant rumors, word on the street also has famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa opening a restaurant in Solaris at Vail this summer. Matsuhisa Aspen is world-famous for its gourmet Japanese seafood and sushi, and the great chef also has restaurants in Malibu, Tokyo, Nassau (Bahamas) and Beverly Hills, Calif.

If that rumor proves true, that would really raise the bar for Vail restaurants.

People can add another steakhouse in the Valley, but as far as I'm concerned the best steakhouse isn't even in Vail or Beaver Creek. For 24 years The Minturn Country Club has been serving steaks to hungry locals and guests alike. The U.S.D.A. Prime New York strip is the best steak in the Valley bar-none. I worship Elway, in fact I think he should be running for President. But the last thing the Valley needs is another steakhouse.

Thx for your post. I’d like to write my opinion that the expense of car insurance varies from one insurance plan to another, due to the fact there are so many different facets which contribute to the overall cost. Such as, the model and make of the auto will have a massive bearing on the price. A reliable outdated family motor vehicle will have an inexpensive premium compared to a flashy sports vehicle. 대구출장마사지
