Sushi in Buena Vista??? Indeed!!

Postby audiotom » Thu Jul 11, 2013 9:19 am

My son and I were up last week and looking for a meal in Buena Vista
We had dined at one steak place a few years ago
Having eaten more than our fair share of steakhouse and Mexican fare on this trip in Silverton, Salida, Lake City, Moab etc - we were ready for something else

The owner of the Trailhead outdoor camping/hiking/biking store suggested Sushi

sushi in BV?

Asian Palate
On Main Street - go east from the BV red light 2 blocks on the left

We were shocked

here was a contemporary sushi/thai restaurant with fresh fish - upscale and reasonably priced

I live in New Orleans where we have 20+ good sushi places and it was a real nice treat to get a great meal in the mountains

that night we camped west of St Elmo - with a content palate and a sky full of stars

Wow,

Impressive that someone opened a sushi restaurant in Buena Vista, I'll make a point to patronize the place next time I drive through. Entrepreneur = opening a sushi restaurant in Beuna Vista.

I would call it asian fusion that happens to have sushi as well. In any case, it's quite good. Last time I tried to go, however, there was a 45 minute wait, so the word seems to be out that it's a place worth going to.

This is what will happen if you eat *raw* fish in Buena Vista : :barf off:

If the seafood is raw; I'm thinking you want to be as close as possible to the sea.

Buena Vista should have a steak tartare place.

I was at the BV Eddyline restaurant (river one) July 4 and asked them where their fish came from? They said none from Colorado but flown in. I was hoping for something fresh from the Arkansas River just a feet away :(

I didn't try the sushi because my ski descent of Mt. Columbia seemed like enough boldness for one day, but the green curry dish was awesome. And they have a nice, romantic atmosphere. There was even live piano music. MonGoose let me buy him dinner.

I had chinese in BV a few years ago... it definitely was the mountain version of a typically mediocre chinese place.

Since 2006 I've spent 4-5 months each year in BV and only eaten once at the Pizza place - ok but undercooked, K's a dry hamburger, Eddy line a tasteless grain fed beef burger.

I like BV very much - good for coffee, beer and baked goods at the oldest bake shop.

In Salida I had a good steak in Currents. One day I'll try Quincy.

BV recently had a company come in to research how plan for the future.

Over the years I've noticed an improvement.

It really is a great location.

Oh don't get me wrong, I like it a lot. Just not that particular place. But it wasn't much different from the crappy food you would find at any other restaurant in a stripmall in Denver.

A couple of years ago I googled "Fine dining, Buena Vista".

The search engine is still running.
