Word of the delicious fare, delightful happy hours and breathtaking views at Lodge by The Blue’s Myla Rose Saloon is getting out! Most recently, Myla Rose was featured in Colorado Summit Magazine. Here are some highlights from the piece.
“People used to drive right through Blue River; now they have an appetizing, jaw-dropping reason to stop.” -Colorado Summit Magazine
“In the two years since (Tom) Lyons bought the property, he has rechristened…Lodge by the Blue and has completed a vast renovation… The crux of the work culminated last December with the opening of the Myla Rose Saloon, a restaurant and bar…that now serves as the only commercial space between Breckenridge and Alma—and has given the bedroom community of Blue River its own neighborhood hangout, as well as a novelty option for Breck residents who want to explore something different.”
“This spring…the restaurant expanded to seven days a week; and people have taken notice. The Lodge is usually booked with vacation club members, but on a warm afternoon in mid-May, the sprawling deck buzzed with as many locals as tourists, a common sight of late.”
“The must-try menu item? A plate of bison poutine—braised bison short rib with caramelized onions and cheddar cheese curds (just $5 at happy hour)—as well as beers from Breck’s Broken Compass and Boulder’s Avery… Other favorites include a mix of American and international comfort food, like the Nashville-style spicy chicken sandwich, with nightly specials ranging from vegetable farfalle and lamb meatballs in pesto cream sauce to grilled yellowfin tuna wraps.”
“The Myla Rose’s cozy bar and sun-dappled patio sit above the dining room, but each seating area features the same jaw-dropping view of Quandary and the sawtooth ridge between Fletcher and Atlantic peaks—two centennial thirteeners at the head of the valley.”
