Spending the celebration of love in the Rockies? Grab your significant other on Valentine’s Day and check out one of these super tasty restaurants in Breckenridge.
If you’re not sure as to what to eat on Valentine’s Day, then try something new for once… Cajun food! The Lost Cajun took a piece of New Orleans and brought it over to the west. This spicy, authentic Cajun restaurant is a perfect place for a Valentine’s Day outing! The staff is friendly and interactive, providing that positivity that would bring a young couple closer together. Even better, the restaurant environment matches that positive, Cajun energy one for one. And what is a Valentine’s Day date without ending the night with a melt-in-your-mouth dessert? The Lost Cajun might just be your only chance to ever snag a beignet (pronounced bin-yay) on this side of the country. If you’re not sure what a beignet is, just think “fluffy, French funnel cake”. Good, right? Don’t miss your chance!
Perhaps, instead, you and your +1 are seeking something more posh? A fancy dinner with blackberry elk steak? And braised buffalo ribs? Would you want to top it off by dining with a mountain view in one of Breckenridge’s most historic downtown buildings? Hearthstone Restaurant in Breckenridge provides that fancy romantic feeling that is always glorified on TV with people drinking expensive wines while having a candlelit conversation.
How about a restaurant (plus a bar) that is sort of in between the two aforementioned restaurants? Ember offers a 4-star atmosphere with a vibe that is more electric than luxurious. Ember is a chef-owned restaurant, so the entrée recipes are all self-invented by the owner/chef himself. At first glance, you may think that there are some pretty peculiar looking flavor combinations on the menu, but just look at the reviews on the web! Ember will make you wonder why there are not more chef owned restaurants out there.
