Correction: Best of Summit brings out errors in the Daily

The Summit Daily News special edition covering the Best of Summit County contained several errors.

Our news hounds got a wrong read on the name of the best hair designer. Readers’ number one pick, of the Chopping Block in Breckenridge, is Denise Queen.

Several businesses also felt readers deserved to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about their establishments:

Blue River Bistro in Breckenridge

Blue River Bistro owner Jay Beckerman has a hard time picking the best thing about his popular restaurant in Breckenridge.

It could be the award-winning menu, featuring such favorites as the linguini Leonardo, seafood primavera or shellfish cioppino, prepared by chef Eric Shiell, who’s been creating delectable meals at the bistro for two years. He’s joined by sous chef Matt Perez, who’s in charge of each night’s specials.

“They use their creativity to come up with new items to put on the menu each night,” Beckerman said. “They’re absolutely great guys.”

If it’s not the menu, it could be the atmosphere. The restaurant features an open-air feel with its vaulted ceilings. Candles on the tables add to the ambience.

And then there are the 75 martinis available – and the wines, ranging from popular to esoteric.

Or perhaps the best thing is the sound: live, late-night music on Fridays and a Denver-based Brazilian jazz trio on Saturdays grace the restaurant – providing entertainment until midnight each week.

Great place all around.

High Altitude in Breckenridge

High Altitude, with locations in Breckenridge and Frisco, has a wide variety of gifts for locals and tourists alike. High Altitude offers a large selection of merchandise, including imports from Bali, India and Nepal. The store also carries an enormous selection of incense, candles, flasks, stickers and the largest selection of tobacco pipes in the High Country.
