Inspired Colorado cuisine in a luxury mountain retreat

A tribute to the Rocky Mountains shines through at WYLD, the signature restaurant inside Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. From its premier slopeside location to the spirit of the land that inspired the menu, WYLD is authentic and bold in its refined presentation of Colorado cuisine.

Walk through the living-room-style lounge and bar area of the resort to the dining room, where the warmth of a fire and the views of an open kitchen illuminate the talents of executive chef Joseph Tiano and his team.

Local flavors shine through any time of day, from an impressive rendition of huevos rancheros and the WYLD breakfast sandwich with elk sausage in the morning toa grass-fed bison ribeye with housemade steak sauce and a wild boar pasta at night.
