Alpine Tavern Introduces Thursday’s Temptations

Share Article

Today, the Alpine Tavern introduced their Thursday night special “Thursday Temptations”.

Paolo Busi, East Vail resident and Executive Chef of Alpine Tavern, has created the new European dining experiences:The Thursday Temptation for January is Lamb Shank- a moist, lean meat, immersed in a delicate, light coconut curry sauce. This is Colorado lamb, range fed, very lean, and presented in a gentle sauce hinting of Thailand’s aromatic cuisine.

Scott Kneeland, Alpine Tavern sommelier, recommends pairing the Lamb Shank with Rombauer Chardonnay. This beautiful Napa wine has a golden yellow color with a pale hue. Seductive aromas of peach, melon, and citrus are balanced with honeysuckle and vanilla. On the palate, flavors of pears, peaches and melons are backed with lively acidity. A nice touch of vanilla-scented oak provides an added flavor dimension. The creamy palate has a lingering finish of melon and citrus fruit with a satisfying buttery complexity

Alpine’s wine cellar presents wonderful choices including reasonably priced Napa, Sonoma, Italian, and other international wines perfect for special celebrations. For the connoisseur, Alpine Tavern has an excellent selection of fine French and American wines.

Alpine Tavern’s international staff delivers, in the words of their customers "awesome service". Dining is a unique experience not just a meal. Guests will be recognized at their entrance as a valued individual.
