Concierge.com's insider take:
With hot-pink walls, whimsical chandeliers, and cutesy menu items like "sushitini," Foxnut (oh, yeahand that name!) is not what you'd expect in luxurious Beaver Creek. But it's a welcome change from the usual Western-themed, "casual elegant" joints. Come straight from the slopes for happy hour, when everything from sushi to sake to Sapporo beer is half-price. Some of the rolls on the menu are suspect (the NYC Big Apple with cream cheese, apple, and eel?), but the portions are huge and the fish is delivered fresh daily from Denver. Some of the fusion offerings, such as pot stickers, moo-shu duck, and glazed pork ribs, are comfortingly familiar. The staff is friendly to a fault. This is a nice place to take off your ski boots and kick back.
