It is finally snowing and White Bison, located in the heart of Vail Village, is back in the dining game with a new food menu and beverage program. The restaurant, focused on new American comfort cuisine, is led by local culinary talent Jake Burkhart, formerly chef at Colorado’s Aspen Kitchen.
The chef features Colorado products in the newly launched menu. There is bison in signature dishes like the tartare topped with quail egg and served with crispy mushroom chips, fresh watercress, pickled pearl onions and a side of asiago toasted sourdough. Highlights of the menu include the roasted apple and parsnip soup with spicy pumpkin seeds, sage brown butter, pomegranate, chestnuts and the bourbon-brined pork chop with shelling bean, cassoulet, herb bread crumbs and apple slaw. The bison burger is a major crowd favorite.
White Bison is located at 223 Gore Creek Drive in Vail and will be open for dinner starting this week. Lunch, après ski and dinner will be served Wednesday through Sunday starting on December 22.
