Eight K’s Tender Belly Tomahawk Pork Chop, Spaghetti Squash, Sherry Braised Sweet and Sour Cipollinis, and Madeira Pork Jus.
Viceroy Snowmass Executive Chef Will Nolan is making it extremely difficult to watch the waistline between Aspen’s many holiday happenings. A native Southerner, Nolan has been serving sophisticated low-country inspired cuisine at the Viceroy since the resort’s opening. Yet this season he’s upping the ante, as the following gives reason enough to head to the bustling Snowmass Base Village. Here's what's new:
Slopeside Hot Dogs
A new modern hot dog menu makes its Rocky Mountain debut at the Kelly Wearstler-designed NEST, featuring a slew of sausages, traditional hot dogs, and homemade buns. After earning your turns and working up an appetite with runs on The Wall, refuel with “The Leo,” a foot-long hot dog with jalapeño relish and bacon.
Low-High Country Cooking
Nolan’s low-country fare hits the high country at Viceroy’s Eight K, where the shrimp and grits have long been a must. But don’t miss some new knockouts, including the Blackened Elk Rack with braised white beans, house-made smoked elk sausage, grilled broccolini, and rosemary elk jus. Also new is the Eight-K Oyster Bar, serving the finest East and West coast bivalves either on the half shell or as tasty shooters.
Wine Dinner Series
Wine dinners are par for the course among Aspen’s elevated dining scene, but rarely is there a season lineup as wine-tastic as the following. Tickets start at $150 per person for a four-course dinner paired with wines. Cheers!
