We love our pizza, and let’s face it, a heaping plate of ooey-gooey nachos (with a cold beer, of course) tastes great after a long day in the backcountry. But as both locals and visitors seek out more refined meals, restaurateurs have responded. The best part? Upping the ante has not meant upping the attitude. Try these 5 favorite restaurants in Breckenridge for top meals.

ARTISAN 206

Featuring worldly inspired cuisine, Artisan 206 is one of the newest restaurants in town, but it has quickly earned a reputation as one of the best. With a wide variety of palette options, you can’t go wrong.

LEGENDS

Legends is Breckenridge’s newest fine dining restaurant featuring high-end steaks, house-made pasta and prohibition era cocktails.

Using house-made cashew cheese, plant-based meats, and fresh veggies, Chef Jason Goldstein will seduce the most skeptic of skeptics. The cozy dining room environment features vintage farm décor resulting in a wonderfully casual and inviting space.
