Concierge.com's insider take:
Set in a renovated 1908 grain-feed store (the original lift and loft remain), the Old Elevator features stained-glass windows that tint the mountain views. The vaguely French menu includes steak, chicken, seafood, and pastas—and uses the phrase "pan-seared" a lot. For an upscale restaurant, dishes are refreshingly simple. Try the New York strip loin with green peppercorn sauce, or the Pacific king salmon with lobster butter. The cozy fireside lounge is a great place to enjoy an aperitif before dinner.
