Rotisserie Menu and A La Carte Breakfast Menu Are What’s New at The Artisan
Executive Chef Steven Sterritt puts his own touch on an already thriving Snowmass establishment
SNOWMASS VILLAGE, CO – May 16, 2016 – When The Artisan opens for the summer season on June 1, diners will be delighted with two major changes coming from the kitchen. Executive Chef Steven Sterritt, who came to The Artisan in November 2015, will be unveiling a new summer dinner menu that includes rotisserie, as well as a revitalized breakfast menu that features mainly a la carte options.
The rotisserie entrée is half of a Boulder Natural Chicken with herb marinated veggies, served with a signature Artisan sauce and side – perfect for both in-house dining or for picnic dinners to go. Dishes such as the Colorado Lamb Lettuce Wraps, the Haystack Mountain Goat Cheese Ravioli, and the Compressed Peach & Baby Heirloom Tomato Salad are locally-sourced and seasonally-inspired, and to those who have spent a lifetime living and playing in the Colorado Rockies, they will be all at once familiar and innovative.
The option for gourmet picnic dinners will please locals and visitors alike heading to events like the free summer concert series. Picnickers can call ahead or order in person, and The Artisan kitchen will pack up a gourmet rotisserie chicken dinner with all the fixings. BYOB – bring your own blanket!
The summer dinner menu, which is entirely new and has been designed in whole by Executive Chef Steven Sterritt, reflects his love of the mountains, their culture and cuisine, and ultimately, the cooking methods that most deeply resonate with people who come to the mountains. The Artisan’s extensive wine list, selection of Colorado craft beers, and artisanal cocktails will complement the dinner menu, making summer dining in Snowmass, Colorado an experience worthy of the area’s culinary reputation.
A new a la carte breakfast menu will establish The Artisan as “the spot” for breakfast in Snowmass Village. Menu items such as the Bananas Foster French Toast and the Sweet Potato Pancakes will quickly become brunch favorites, while the already-beloved house made granola, omelets, and benedicts will fuel up guests headed out for a day on the trails. The traditional buffet will be replaced by a Market Table, whose offerings will change with the seasons and will be lighter overall.
Happy Hour will continue to be a gathering point for friends and family after a day spent exploring the Aspen Snowmass area, and the new Peel n’ Eat Shrimp appetizer with a draught beer or glass of select wine for $9 will be a perfect segue to the evening.
