Classy Idaho Springs Restaurant, MTN Prime, Hires a New Chef and Updates Their Menu

MTN Prime (, established in 2016, has hired Chef Aaron Busch to head up changes to their kitchen and menu. The most notable change is the transformation to a scratch kitchen, meaning that all of MTN Prime’s pastas, beef stocks, and other core ingredients will be made in-house. Their philosophy has always been to use locally-sourced ingredients as much as possible, and this move to a scratch kitchen is the natural progression. They have also brought a butcher in-house to decrease the prices of many of their cuts of meat and allow them to render the whole animal.

The menu as a whole is more progressive. Busch has honed in on the offerings that fit MTN Prime while diversifying the menu through the variety that will be available as the fish and produce are switched out as a result of shifting availability. Regarding the changes that have been made to the MTN Prime menu, Busch said, “Fine dining doesn’t have to have the stigma of being expensive. This new menu is going to be taste effective and cost effective.”

Busch began his cooking career in North Carolina over a decade ago and has spent the last 8 years working in Miami at the Fontainebleau Hotel, Bird & Bone, and other restaurants. He has experience working in a variety of cuisines, including the classic French, Thai, and Korean. He pools all of his experience into the updated menu at MTN Prime.

MTN Prime’s changes primarily include:

  • Refining the lunch menu to include a wider variety of options.
  • Utilizing the new scratch kitchen processes to reduce prices.

MTN Prime has also launched a new website to increase their online presence. The website highlights their beautiful food and showcases the changes to the menu.
