Park & Main:
Breck’s newest restaurant offers top-notch ingredients in a menu of sandwiches, snacks, salads and more. In addition to more traditional fare like the BLT and the Italian Grinder, Park & Main also offers up a wide variety of mouthwatering international options, including a Vietnamese Banh Mi, a Gyro, and a Chicken Shawarma.
Open for lunch and dinner, the Quandary Grille offers soups, salads, sandwiches, steaks, and assorted entrees. The casual atmosphere, proximity to the slopes, and great happy hour make it the perfect place to refuel or enjoy a beverage after a day of skiing. On warm, March days, their large patio offers a chance to soak in the spring sunshine.
The words “late-night Mexican food” may bring to mind images of greasy, cheesy deep-fried junk food, but Lucha is exactly the opposite. With fresh, healthy ingredients prepared to order, and mouth-watering homemade salsas, you’ll find yourself coming in for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And since they are open daily until 2am or later, you can stop in for a late night snack without feeling guilty. Burritos, tacos, and quesadillas are just a few of options available, and their made-to-order breakfast burritos are downright addictive.
Blue River Bistro:
Located on the northern end of Main Street, the Blue River Bistro combines a casual atmosphere and great, live jazz with world-class Italian-American cuisine. Fresh, quality ingredients form the base for the variety of gourmet salads, sandwiches, pastas and entrees. Open for lunch and dinner, the best time to visit is happy hour, where you’ll enjoy 2-for-1 appetizers and martinis.
