Oak Barrel of Eagle restaurant mostly gets it right

This upscale restaurant and lounge recently opened in the former Windingcreek Grill spot near Downtown Eagle. The seasonal menu, like the wine list, bounces around the globe for inspiration. Appetizers are meant for sharing. Try the tapas platter, packed with Serrano ham-wrapped asparagus, nutty manchego cheese, green olives, dried chorizo and chilled slices of egg-and-potato tortilla. Noteworthy entrée picks include the Basque-marinated flat iron steak and vegetarian Napoleon. Make sure to have the glazed donut bread pudding for dessert.

The Counter offers an upscale burger experience

The Counter, which opened two years ago at The Village at Meridian, is a California-based chain that specializes in gourmet burgers and fun twists on traditional side dishes. Try a Muffuletta burger, a hand-formed, all-natural beef patty piled high on a crusty ciabatta roll with shaved ham, gooey provolone, roasted red pepper and briny olive salad. The gluten-free crowd will find plenty to eat here as well thanks to a large selection of “Burgers in a Bowl.”
