If only one thing could set Mountain Standard apart from the myriad of amazing restaurants in Vail Village, it would be the wood. Mountain Standard is known, above all, for its wood-fired kitchen, where smoky flavors arise to tantalize the taste buds. Subtle and overt flavors that come out of this restaurant's wood stoves are memorable and characteristic of menu items extending from the savory olives in one of its starters to beloved seafood and steak entrees. Mountain Standard's menu is full of fresh takes on modern American cuisine, and its creekside location in Vail Village makes it a happening place to have an apres-ski cocktail or a lunch in the summer, when open patio doors make the Mountain Standard experience all the more inviting.
