FOR DATE NIGHT
Aurum food + wine
One of the newer restaurants in town is my personal favorite for date night. Aurum Food + Wine serves up outstanding dishes and cocktails with a modern, yet cozy, romantic and bustling atmosphere. Highly recommend.
If you want a meal unique to Breck, you have to dine at the Breckenridge Distillery Restaurant. Chef David Burke brings seasonal, bold, unique flavors and great company together in a relaxed, rustic mountain setting. And the craft cocktails are incredible. While you’re there, take a distillery tour!
Enjoy fine dining in a Breckenridge victorian period style, romantic home at The Hearthstone. Take in stunning views of town, Breckenridge Ski Resort and the majestic Ten Mile Range. This restaurant features naturally raised beef & game, sustainably caught seafood, and our great, seasonal Colorado produce. If you want a special night out, this is the place.
