Beaver Creek, CO
Why you’ll want to go:
Talons is as true a slope-side restaurant as you'll encounter, well, on the slopes; it's actually at the intersection of Larkspur Bowl with Grouse Mountain and Birds of Prey trails. Replacing the wildly popular Red Tail Camp, the huge new spot's more than double the size (17,000sqft) and boasts 500 seats inside and 250 out. Sink your
talons into lamb burgers, artisan pizzas, and shaved smoked pork loin w/ 'kraut and baked apples.
