Eat & Drink

Mountain Meals

The ski slopes dominate the conversation and the to-do list in Breckenridge. But even if your sole goal of the weekend is catching first chair or squeezing in one last run, you’ve still got to eat. Here’s how to do it well—morning, noon, and night.
January 2013

Breakfast (and/or Lunch) Park & Main

Three words: scrambled egg bruschetta. The mere promise of Park & Main’s fluffy eggs mixed with prosciutto cotto and fontina should have you jumping out of bed. Planners take note: Grab the pecan wood–smoked BLT with chipotle mayo for a portable (and affordable) lunch on the mountain. 500 S. Main St., 970-453-9493, parkandmainfood.com

Aprés-Ski Mi Casa

Few things taste sweeter than a cold one after a day of moguls. Sip a Left Hand Milk Stout or a margarita made with one of 120 tequilas and order Mi Casa’s dollar tacos—beef, chicken, or black bean—during happy hour (3 to 6 p.m.). Bonus: The eats come with chips and three fresh salsas. 600 South Park Ave., 970-453-2071, micasamexicanrestaurant.com

Dinner Twist

Ditch the gear and freshen up for a night out at Twist. Order a beer from the extensive Colorado craft brew list and share the Buffalo-style roast quail (a spin on classic Buffalo wings) with Maytag blue cheese and bacon. Follow up with the chicken-fried steak doused in rabbit-rattlesnake sausage gravy. 200 S. Ridge St., 970-547-7100, twistbreck.com

Late-Night Eats Modis

At Modis, happy hour isn’t just for the before-dinner crowd. From 9 to 11 p.m., find deals on Great Divide Titan IPA, one of more than 30 wines by the glass, and Prohibition-era nightcaps. Pair your drink(s) with the spicy J.Z.’s steak-and-cheese eggrolls or dip into the hand-cut truffle fries. 113 S. Main St., 970-453-4330, modisbreck.com
