Harvest-Inspired Approach

This time of year, fall activities are on everyone’s minds, and the culinary team is no different. As he maps out his menu for the season, Chef Cory draws on memories of harvest time as a child. From fall markets to canning and preservations to prepare for winter, autumn marks the gathering of families returning indoors to warm their bodies – and hearts. Cory’s menu is equally heart-warming (and filling)! In addition to featuring seasonal favorites, the team will also be welcoming back slow-cooked food. Not only does this method of cooking enhance each ingredient’s unique flavors, but it creates fall-off-the-bone tenderness.

Prepare For Fall Flavors  

In the fall, guests can enjoy horseback riding to see postcard-worthy views of Colorado’s famous golden aspens, hike through miles of crunchy leaves, or snuggle up around the fire to reminisce about the day’s activities. And at C Lazy U, the magic doesn’t stop at mealtime. Chef Cory and his team are building fall’s menu based on the starlets of the season – including apples, winter squash, venison, duck, and elk. More interested in sweet than savory? Don’t worry! Cory’s team works side-by-side with the pastry team to ensure your dish is seasonal perfection from start to finish.

From the Horse's Mouth

The beautiful bar and the friendliness (and amazing memory) of the primary bartender, Trent, made the experience like having an evening drink with your family. When you can walk into a bar, just chatting with a new friend for a few minutes, and the bartender walks over and doesn't say "What'll ya have?" but instead smiles like he means it, then calls you by name as he hands you your drink – that's special. It makes you feel like you're part of the C Lazy U family.
