Steamboat Dining: In with the new…and the old.

September 17th, 2014

steamboatdining-cafedivaThere are perks to living in a world class ski town, and the dining is definitely one of them.  Nearly any cuisine - done well - you can find in Steamboat Springs, and many of Steamboat’s finer establishments have been here for decades. But we’ve had a few new editions that are worth a mention, too. Read below for our top three “oldies” and top three “newbies” to the Steamboat dining scene.

Oldies

Café Diva
Led  by Chef Kate Van Rensselaer Rench, Café Diva remains a locals’ and visitors’ fine dining favorite, bar none.  Chef Kate features seasonally fresh French-Asian Cuisines and an excellent wine list (the restaurant did have its beginnings as a wine bar).

Mazzola's in downtown Steamboat

A cozy Italian restaurant in downtown Steamboat, Mazzola’s offers unique Italian fare in a family-friendly environment.  A great choice for groups with children, as the menu is varied enough to accommodate younger and older taste preferences. (Plus, they offer dough for the kiddos to shape into their own bread and then baked.”

Mahogany Ridge
A local brewery that’s equally known for its food, from upscale happy hour appetizers to (such as Roasted Serrano & Cilantro Hummus) to unique pub menu (Mahi Mahi Fish & Chips), this is truly a downtown favorite. We recommend: go for happy hour, then stay for dinner!
