Oh the joys of off-season. No people in town and lots of discounted food and beverages at the best local restaurants. Our staff picks for three half-off deals you won’t want to miss:
Half-off any bottle from the cellar at Harvest by Kelly Liken with the purchase of an entrée
Acclaimed chef Kelly Liken has been getting rave reviews at her relatively new project, Harvest, located in the Sonnenalp Club in Singletree. With stunning views and a huge sun-splashed patio, it’s the perfect place to catch the last lingering warmth of fall. Right now, Liken’s offering half-off bottles of wine with a purchase of an entrée, a great deal considering that her dinner menu is already priced right.

Half-off entrees at Juniper
Scott Ofsanko’s inspirational cooking features seasonal creations such as roasted beet and burrata salad and herb-crusted mesquite chicken. With an open kitchen and dining room overlooking the Eagle River, the view is almost as good as his entrées, which now are half-off and pair nicely with a wine list that focuses on smaller, less glitzy wineries.

Half-off all wine or liquor bottles at the Blue Plate
This fun, affordable dinner and lunch spot in Avon is knocking half-off the price of all bottle service, from liquor to wine. With a menu that includes Colorado roast lamb pita sandwiches, a pungent fondue loaded with Emmentaler, Tilsit, and Gruyère, and the White Trash taco salad with Fritos, it’s a nice option for down-valley residents looking for a deal.
