Seating is very limited, please inquire about reservation at Elevation 970-544-5166

Yet 2011 was possibly the most exciting year yet for Hakan Thornstrom as he was awarded “Chef of the Year” and “Restaurateur of the Year” in Sweden and was also awarded a star in the Michelin Guide

With the recent wide spread interest in Scandinavian cuisine ( Noma voted no1 restaurant in the world 2011  – Noma means Nordisk mat = Nordic cuisine) we are very pleased to offer a unique experience at Elevation restaurant.

Since no great meal is perfect without the pairing of great wine, we are pleased and honored to present our friend and world-renowned sommelier, Jay Fletcher, as guest sommelier for the evening.
