Culinary by Cuvée | Vail Valley, Colorado

Vail’s high altitude sunken valley is ideal for access to fresh and organic produce, wild river fish, and the best damn lamb in the world. Locally grown and farmed ingredients, like heritage pork and the world’s second most expensive nut, the pine nut, allow Culinary by Cuvée in Vail to showcase the best in Rocky Mountain cuisine. The pristine nature of the White River National Forest and vivid landscapes give root, literally, to many flora that aren’t found in other parts of the world.

Engage in Michelin-starred and globally-inspired feasts as well as a family and group favorite: Swiss-themed Rocky Mountain Raclette evening.Vail and Beaver Creek are also home to some of Colorado’s top tables, including Matsuhisa, Sweet Basil, Mountain Standard, and Splendido. And Cuvée has access to the best seats in the house at all of them.
