Summit County dining is getting good. Here are the highlights. BANGKOK HAPPY BOWL THAI BISTRO AND SUSHI BAR Restaurant veterans Kirk and Paula Coult opened their fourth Bangkok Happy Bowl in January 2017, overhauling a historic Main Street Breckenridge building and bringing fresh, authentic Thai back to town. Locals are loving the Thai Laksa Bowl noodles in red curry soup with tender chicken and fried tofu, along with the traditional Pad Thai. Choose your heat—mild, medium, hot or Thai hot—and dine before 3 p.m. to take advantage of discounted lunch and rock-n-roll sushi specials. On Sunday nights, pour some sake and belt big karaoke hits. 103 N. Main St., 970- 547-9998 CONTINENTAL DIVIDE WINERY Rounding out Main Street Station’s revamped retail and dining lineup, this mountain chic tasting room uncorks bottles from its Colorado and California collections, including bold cabs, chardonnays and an old vine zinfandel. Stop in for a tasting (flash a Park or Summit County ID for two-for-ones), join the no-fee wine club for access to exclusive winemaker dinners and release parties; or sign on for a two-hour wine blending experience and craft your own blend. Hungry? The Cheese Shop across the way delivers gourmet sandwiches and fromage and charcuterie boxes. 505 S.

Enjoy a Colorado-born beer from folks like Left Hand and Broken Compass, paired with deals on cheese curds, bison poutine and Colorado green chili cheese fries. 4192 Hwy. 9, Blue River, 970-453-9491, mylarosesaloon.com MOM’S BAKING CO. Former sous chef for the Czech Olympic Team and local catering and pastry guru Ema Landis opened her European-style cafe in November.
