Frisco Prime; a new restaurant in Frisco, Colorado

by Meredith Adams

The sign has gone up but the doors are still closed.  I haven't heard when the new restaurant will be open for business but I will be keeping an eye on it!

According to some history on OpenTable and the Summit Daily, the back bar of the Blue Spruce building was built in Brunswick, New York, around 1860 before being transported to Denver.  It was taken by wagon to Black Hawk where it was part of the Royal Flush Saloon.  At some point, it was dismantled, brought to Summit County and re-assembled.  The Blue Spruce Inn opened in 1940 near Farmer's Corner.  It moved to it's present location in 1974.  2017 brings yet another chapter to this decades long story when the Blue Spruce closed.  We are anticipating the opening of Frisco Prime in 2018.

Frisco Prime is rumored to have the same owner's as Vinny's, an Italian restaurant just down the street.  I don't know if that rumor is true but the V on the Frisco Prime sign makes me think it could be accurate.

The ever changing landscape of restaurants in Frisco

by The Mountain Living Team

The Blue Spruce Inn has served its last meal in Frisco.  A local establishment since the 1940’s, The Blue Spruce Inn is out.  The rumor mill has suggested Vinny’s, an Italian Restaurant currently near 4th & Main, will be moving into the Blue Spruce building.  Vinny’s is a great restaurant that currently has a much too tiny space.  If the rumors are true, and they can capitalize on the space without losing anything, it will be a fantastic change for Frisco.  The current Vinny’s location will be the home of a new restaurant endeavor.

Meanwhile, The Boatyard has completed their addition and interior renovation and recently re-opened as Uptown on Main.  They still have the same great patio out back but have moved the front bar into the new addition and modernized everything.  It’s fresh and I guess, “uptown.”  Our first visit to the new restaurant was a happy hour gathering with friends.  We left feeling like we didn’t quite get our money’s worth.  It was pretty good but a little pricey.  We’ll certainly give them another try after they have been up and running a while before we make a final judgment.

Other changes that happened this year in Frisco include Gonzo’s coffee that took up residence in the old Starbuck’s location off Summit Blvd. Starbucks moved into a brand new development just down the street.  It’s where the old Christmas tree lot used to be every year.  It’s now a Natural Grocer, Which Wich & Starbucks.  Smiling Moose has moved out, both the Frisco and Dillon locations.  I’m not sure the circumstances behind that but it was a quick getaway, leaving everything behind.  I haven’t heard about what may replace them yet.

It's always nice to get some fresh, new restaurants in Frisco.  Unfortunately, it sometimes comes at the expense of some old standbys that we loved.
