Vail's Larkspur chef, Thomas Salamunovich
, has one goal when he and his 13-year-old son, Leo, appear on "The Today Show
" tomorrow morning: teach Leo, and his two other sons, how to make farm-fresh eggs with crab-potato stuffing and caviar fondue. Salamunovich wants breakfast in bed on Father's Day.Â

, Salamunovich's founding restaurant, continually receive accolades from local and national press, but in recent years Salamunovich has opened a handful of other VailÂ restaurants, includingÂ Larkburger , a chic burger joint
that melts sharp Tillamook cheddar over its cooked-to-order Coleman natural beef patties. Check out Larkburger in more detail inÂ 5280's
Â August road-trip restaurant, or wait and visit the restaurant yourself in October, when Salamunovich and partnerÂ AdamÂ Baker
Â open a Boulder location at 28th Street and Arapahoe Avenue. Salamunovich predicts a Denver Larkburger within the next year.
