Elway announced Monday another of his namesake restaurants will open at The Lodge at Vail for the 2011-2012 ski season.
The Elway's in Vail will be the first of the former Denver Broncos quarterback's restaurants to be built outside of Denver.
"In our opinion, The Lodge at Vail is the best restaurant location in Vail, and we're excited about aligning our strong Elway's brand with the powerful brands of Vail and Vail Resorts. We look forward to serving Vail visitors from all over the world and seeing so many of our Denver guests who ski and vacation in Vail. The Elway's Cherry Creek team can't wait to bring Denver's best steakhouse to town," Elway said in a news release.
Construction on the new restaurant will begin on Aug. 1 and will be about 5,500 square feet, enough to seat around 260 guests, when it is finished. The menu will boast hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood and shellfish, Colorado lamb, and Elway's Smash Burger.
