  • Le Soupcon: world class dining in a small town!

    by mollynsteve Written Jun 19, 2006

    We have enjoyed outstanding dinners here over the years. It has now changed hands, with a new chef, but the tradition remains the same. For such a small resort village Crested Butte has some great restaurants, and this is among its best.
    Quite small, perfect for that romantic fine dinner. The menu is a mix of American/French/Continental and is well matched by an extensive wine list. Service was excellent.

    Favorite Dish: We enjoyed mussels, a huge crabcake of lump crabmeat, rabbit with sausage, and a great halibut preparation. It was hard to pass up their rack of lamb, but as I seldom see rabbit on a menu I had to try it and was not disappointed.

  • Harry's Fine Dining: classy small restaurant!

    by mollynsteve Updated Jun 19, 2006

    This restaurant now has a new name - about half a dozen tables plus a small bar area. A great new chef preparing French continental cuisine pared with a small but good wine list. Attentive service in a romantic setting. Another great restaurant option in the small town of Crested Butte.

    Favorite Dish: Elk rack, smoked lamb, veal sweetbreads, the list goes on - hard to choose among so many tempting selections, and I'm sure all would have been great.

    Crested Butte Bakery and Cafe: Crested Butte Bakery and Cafe

    The Crested Butte Bakery and Cafe is located just off the main town road, past the town's only stop sign. This is a great place to make a quick stop for croissants, muffins or bagels in the morning and to pick up a fresh sandwich for afternoon adventures. I did both and was pleased. The bread was fresh and the sandwich was delicious.

    Powerhouse Bar and Grill: Powerhouse Bar and Grill

    by goingsolo Written Jan 15, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aside from the few fine dining restaurants which cater to the adjacent Mount Crested Butte crowd, most Crested Butte restaurants contain the phrase "bar and grill" attached to their names. This one is no exception, but this is the Mexican version of Crested Butte's bar and grill scene. As you'd expect, tequila and margaritas are served here, along with some pretty good and unusual Mexican fare.

    The pork tenderloin with sweet and spicy sauce was very good. I didn't much care for the sour cream that came with it, but, casting that aside, it was a good meal.

    The Wooden Nickel: The wooden Nickel

    by goingsolo Updated Jan 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Wooden Nickel is a popular bar and restaurant, perhaps more so the former than the latter. It is supposed to be a great place for steak, especially prime rib.

    Unfortunately, the restaurant ran out of prime rib when I was there, so I can't back up that statement. But the buffalo burger with melted cheese and a towering side of onion rings was pretty satisfying after a long day of hiking.

    As you might expect, the place is come-as-you-are-casual. Shorts, baseball caps and several days' growth of beard are the norm here.

    Favorite Dish: Prime rib is the specialty. I guess you have to come early for that one.
