Top Chef Kelly Liken Dishes on Where to Eat Now in Vail

View as Map

Whether it's Kelly Liken's time on Bravo's Top Chef Season 7 or her multiple James Beard nominations for Best Chef Southwest, the young chef is a powerhouse in the Vail culinary scene. Since opening in 2004, Restaurant Kelly Liken has turned out seasonal fare inspired by local ingredients. The menu pays tribute to all things Colorado, with proteins like Colorado lamb, potato crusted trout, and 4H beef. But don't let the expertly cooked meat steer you away from dessert; Chef Kelly's Sticky Bun Sundae is legendary. Dining at Restaurant Kelly Liken all seven nights of a ski vacation might be overkill for even the most diehard fans, so Curbed Ski asked the Top Chef alum where she likes to eat. In no particular order, here are Chef Kelly Liken's top 6 picks for dining in the Vail Valley.
