It will be a popular spot after skiing with excellent views, according to the owner.

Avanti Food & Beverage is bringing its third food hall to Vail Mountain skiers and snowboarders.

The Denver-based business and Vail Mountain announced on Tuesday that they are jointly investing $4 million to construct an Avanti food hall next year in place of Larkspur Restaurant, which has been at the Golden Peak base area for the past 25 years.

Avanti Vail, like its counterparts in Denver and Boulder, will be a place for chefs to test out a brick-and-mortar concept in a smaller food stall. It will offer a variety of gourmet dishes at reasonable prices. Housing and transportation will also be provided for Avanti staff members, according to the press release.

“Vail has become an international destination with a thriving culinary scene, and we are thrilled to expand to Vail and be a part of the action,” said Avanti co-owner Rob Hahn. “I have lived in the Vail Valley for many years, and I think there is a great opportunity for local chefs to succeed in a food hall here. Our aim is to offer affordable, yet delicious dining options on the mountain where guests can come with groups and don’t need reservations. Our patio is going to be a popular spot after skiing, with great views of the mountain and a new outdoor bar.”

Hahn and business partner Patrick O’Neill opened the first Avanti location in Denver’s LoHi neighborhood in 2015, featuring seven vendors, many of which have since opened their own brick-and-mortar space. like MAKfam. The duo added a second on Boulder’s Pearl Street in 2020.
