No stranger to the Vail Valley, Cyre began his career in Vail before venturing to Manhattan to join the alumni of the French Culinary Institute where he graduated among the top of his class, achieving the Grande Diploma in culinary arts, with honorary recognition for community service. While in New York City, Cyre worked in some of New York’s top restaurants including Mario Batali’s BABBO, Dan Barber’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and Francois Payard’s Payard. He then was recruited to Los Angeles, CA, joining Joachim Splicheal at Patina Restaurant Group. Patina Restaurant Group offered Cyre the chance to open a three-star restaurant, Leatherby’s Café Rouge, as the Executive Sous Chef before being transferred back to NYC to Brasserie on Lexington. After Patina, he joined Chef Ron Shunouaski at Sfoglia as his Chef de Cuisine for a summer before settling into his first Executive Chef role in Washington D.C. with a restaurant group called Culinaire International. Recruited once again, Cyre later was appointed to the prestigious Raffles L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, a Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond property as the Chef De Cuisine.
Cyre’s approach to food is simple and deeply rooted in French, Italian and contemporary American cuisine. His background and skill set are a great fit for Toscanini’s new look and feel. Highlights of Chef Cyre’s menu include the new stone-oven baked Italian style pizzas like the smoked salmon, horseradish cream base, caviar, shallots and chive pizza or the caramelized balsamic onions, maytag and chopped rosemary option. Italian-inspired favorites return to the entrée menu with Colorado lamb spieideni and salmon al forno.
Whether you’re seeking lunch or late night, fine dine or more of a relaxed or bar atmosphere, all with family-friendliness in mind, Toscanini offers dishes to please every palette. The recent remodel includes the creation of a new entrance along with more casual seating overlooking the ice rink, which is perfect for enjoying the newantipasti offerings and their signature homemade lemoncello. Skiers and snowboarders can enjoy a sit down lunch in the village yet still have plenty of time to return to the slopes. It’s also the perfect spot to enjoy dinner or a light bite before or after a show at the Vilar Performing Arts Center.
Toscanini received a 2012 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the 14th straight year. Located in the heart of Beaver Creek Village, overlooking the outdoor ice rink, Toscanini also earned a 2012 OpenTable Diner's Choice award for being kid-friendly. They were also awarded "Best Overall Customer Service Restaurant" for 2012 by the Vail Valley Chamber’s Platinum Service Program.
