In our world, there is no better way to spend time with your loved one than to ski all day, check out the Snowmass après scene and top it off with a romantic dinner. Here, we’ll take you through some of our favorite romantic dining options, just in time for the heart-shaped holiday:
Across Latin America, enjoying food together is more than a meal — it’s a celebration, says chef Richard Sandoval — and a romantic dinner at Sandoval’s new Toro Kitchen and Lounge is the epitome of that philosophy. Specializing in shared plates, Toro offers a sophisticated yet approachable Pan-Latin menu that, along with its specialty cocktails in an elegant hacienda setting, is sure to keep couples coming back for date night.
Few dining experiences are more romantic than sharing an authentic cheese fondue with your love at 8,000 feet — except perhaps indulging together in white chocolate fondue for dessert. You’ll find both of these delectable dishes at The Edge Restaurant and Bar, along with a broad selection of German, Swiss and French alpine-inspired menu items — perfect for kindling the flame on a chilly winter evening.
For a cosmopolitan date night, head over to Saké, a pan-Asian eatery with a sushi bar and an extensive sake menu to rival that of any big city’s. Here you can share a carafe of sake while nuzzling over noodle bowls — or take a gastronomic journey through Southeast Asia and Japan with a new friend at the hip but cozy bar.
Ask for a corner table in the romantically lit dining room and watch the snow fall outside the window as you share an intimate Italian meal at this tucked-away locals’ favorite. You’ll want to linger over every course — don’t miss the veal, asparagus and truffle butter gnocchi — and let the sommelier help you choose the perfect pairings from Il Poggio’s notable wine list.
