Concierge.com's insider take:
Allred's has no street addressit isn't anywhere near a street. Rather, it's inside the San Sophia gondola station at 10,550 feet. With that on-high view of town, no other restaurant comes close in the scenery department. Then again, you can get the same view just by riding the gondola, so Allred's better deliver the epicurean goods, and it does: Delectables include seasonal dishes like poached apricotvanilla Maine lobster tail, or the freerange Canadian veal chop with potato-chanterelle hash. Alone up there on an alpine ridge, Allred's has plenty of space, so the chairs are cushier and the tables more private than in town.
Open daily 3 to 10 pm.
