TripAdvisor Rating: 4.0
Address: 240 Chapel Pl, Avon, Beaver Creek
Nozawa is located in a strip mall in Beaver Creek. While this place doesn’t put on the airs of a 5-star sushi palace, it’s definitely worth checking out. The aesthetics of the restaurant are quite basic, almost generic. But the dull feel to the restaurant is made up for by the fact that they have some of the best sushi to be found in the Beaver Creek area. The seafood is all fresh and prepared to order.
The service is attentive, and you don’t usually need a reservation. Because of the location in a strip mall this is not usually one of the high volume restaurants in the area. This makes for a great lunch stop–especially during peak season when they run a lunch special. The restaurant has managed to grow a small following and has now opened up a second location in Dillon.
What They’re Known for: Nozawa is known for having delicious, fresh sushi. Good sushi is hard to come by in landlocked Colorado, but Nozawa doesn’t let that geographic obstacles stand in the way of quality sushi.
What to Watch for: Beyond the sushi, some of their other dishes do not standout as much, especially for the price. If you’re a sushi fan, you’re in luck, but those who are not a fan may struggle to find a good alternative at this spot.
