We love it when something continues to improve after being around for 45 years—we’re looking at you, George Clooney, and at you, Sweet Basil. This place has been open since 1977 and it’s still a total Vail Village legend, thanks to excellent dishes like yellowtail sashimi, Colorado lamb T-bones, and lobster raviolo doppio. Try and make a reservation in the recently renovated (and brighter) dining room, but know you might be able to slide into some first-come, first-serve bar seats if you’re solo or a party of two, and you show up around 5pm. Or, as we like to call it, that liminal space between après-ski and the dinner rush.
