Spago , Beaver Creek, Colorado

Every winter, the beau monde of the ski set settle into the rustic luxe Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. This year, they have more cause to work up an appetite on the slopes: the arrival of Wolfgang Puck's Spago. Happily, this outpost lacks the pretension of its sister restaurants. New York designer Tony Chi's soaring space has communal oak tables, brown-and-white-hide upholstery, and oversized black-and-white murals of the Rocky Mountains by Denver photographer John Fielder. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the stunning mountainscape. The food is everything you'd expect from the celebrity chef (including sky-high prices): Signature dishes like steamed Hong Kong–style bass with baby bok choy and jasmine rice, and spicy tuna tartare served in sesame-miso tuile cones, don't disappoint. Save room for the sinful 12-layer flourless chocolate cake—after a hard day on the mountain, you've likely earned it (entrées, $40–$95).
