E3 Chophouse is a from range to restaurant, the all-natural beef served that comes straight from the family-owned E3 Ranch, located in Fort Scott, Kansas. The ranch is owned by the LaRoche family (professional baseball brother-owners Jeff, Adam, and Andy LaRoche – Jason Aldean, Willie Robertson, and award-winning country singer Luke Bryan), they pride themselves on raising hormone, steroid and antibiotic-free E3 Black Angus cattle and is excited to bring its healthy beef to the locals and visitors of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
I was eager to check out E3 Chophouse, opened in January, after hearing so many great things about it from my local friends. Located along the Yampa River, E3 is hands down the best outdoor restaurant space on the Yampa, in Steamboat. E3's has a great space, with garage door style windows that open up to a beautiful river and mountain view. The dining room is flooded with natural light and therefore the space connects beautifully with the rocky mountains.
And in case you are curious about the origin of the E3 name, you are in good company. Adam, a major league first baseman for the past ten years, developed the logo in homage to his baseball history. In baseball, positions are numbered, with the first base designated the “3,” and even though he has won a gold glove for his great defensive skills, he humbly added the “E” (meaning “Error”) to the ranch name.
