Leonora: The Sebastian – Vail’s New Restaurant


The Sebastian – Vail is a luxurious place to stay as well as a unique and chic social hub in Vail for owners, hotel guests and the local community. The 100 guestrooms offer comfortable, private quarters in which to relax when not wining, dining and taking part in the excitement of one of Colorado’s most celebrated towns. Group travel planners can find 8,000-square-feet of conference and meeting facilities with expert support staff and the latest infrastructure. And now with the recent addition of the stunning new restaurant, LEONORA (just as the hotel celebrates its second anniversary), The Sebastian – Vail has just gotten even better.

Leonora, the refreshed signature restaurant concept at The Sebastian – Vail, offers some of the finest food in the Colorado Rockies. Named after Leonora Carrington, an inspiring and talented artist whose painting and sculptures greet guests at every turn throughout the property, the restaurant will feature a refreshed space introducing a wine and tapas bar, and a new menu highlighting an Alpine-inspired bistro cuisine.

Leonora’s creative and unpretentious approach to restaurant design and love of niche food styles (such as hand crafted organic, sustainable and small farm food sources), lead the transformation of The Sebastian – Vail’s signature restaurant Block 16 into an exciting social atmosphere with modern-style comfort food that is true to the region. The vision for Leonora at The Sebastian – Vail is to introduce an energetic and upscale, yet delightfully unpretentious culinary experience which will bring a bustling social atmosphere with its new bar spaces and unique culinary offerings inspired by the stunning mountain surroundings.

The Sebastian – Vail’s Executive Chef Sergio Howland will continue implementing his high standards for the property’s food and beverage programming by offering simply prepared tapas, crudo and Alpine dishes utilizing the best local and organic ingredients for a buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch and dinner, and the newly-conceptualized tapas bar. Signature dishes at Leonora will include Serrano ham and cheese Croquetas; Lava Lake Lamb loin with sweet peppers and rosemary jus; Wood-roasted mussels; and Lobster Pot Pie with heirloom vegetables.

The 1,000-bottle strong Wine Silo central to the dining room will continue to set the stage for the wine- centric experience guests can expect of the restaurant. Featuring approximately 300-500 labels and roughly 10,000 total bottles, the extensive wine list will focus heavily on varietals from California and France, with depth in White Burgundy and Bordeaux. New World wines from Spanish and Italian regions will also be featured, along with esoteric selections from South America and Colorado, largely in the form of small vineyard and vineyard designate wines.

    My wife and I only had breakfast at Leonora’s one time and it was outstanding. The level of service from everyone of the hotel staff is what blew us away. From the velets to the front desk staff and from the guy painting the walls to the cleaning staff, we were greeted and asked if we needed anything at every turn. The people at Base Camp were equally attentive. 5-Star service all around.
