You’ll love the castle-like setting and intimate dining spaces here. The Briarhurst Manor was built by Dr. William A. Bell in 1874 as a summer home. When it burned in 1886, he rebuilt it of stone. It passed through several owners until it was turned into a restaurant in 1974, setting a new standard for fine dining in Manitou Springs. It specializes in well-prepared continental and American cuisine, with unique treatments of everything from beef Wellington to elk tournedos. Meals come with breads an amuse bouche, salad, and an intermezzo, and each entrée has a carefully chosen side accompaniment. It’s a particularly popular restaurant for groups and weddings because of its huge indoor and outdoor meeting spaces. Reservations are recommended.
