Out West Wednesday : a review of Sweet Basil

I had such fun writing my review of the Vintage I thought I'd continue to share my reviews of places to eat in Vail. 

One of the most recommended restaurants in Vail is Sweet Basil, and after one trip it's easy to see why. I got to dine at Sweet Basil a couple of times during the off season when they were running special pricing, and I was more than impressed.

We started with a salmon dish with flash fried avocado that was simply delicious. I would never normally order fish, but I'm so glad the friends I went with choose it because it was the perfect light start to our meal.

Next came the Colorado Burger featuring Fat Tire Beer queso. I can't even begin to describe how delicious this burger is; it was so good the first time I ordered it the next time I visited as well! It came with the most delicious bread and butter pickles and perfectly crisp french fries. My mouth is literally watering just thinking about it now.

And to finish it I ordered the Strawberry Tart, because I'm a sucker for anything pink. The cake part was a little harder than I would have made it, but was the perfect accompaniment to the delicious strawberries and ice-cream. After so much food it was the perfect not too sweet, almost savory end to a meal.

I would recommend Sweet Basil for any special occasion in Vail. The staff was attentive and friendly with a great knowledge of the menu. I can't wait to go again in the fall when they hopefully have another specially priced menu that better fits into my budget.
