You have arrived for your fabulous ski vacation in Steamboat Springs and you want to kick the weekend off right with a great dinner. Aurum Food & Wine offers fantastic drinks and a sophisticated take on standard bar food. They also have full meals and desserts for those seeking a little more substance. The upscale establishment sits right on the riverfront, and if the weather is nice, you can sit outside and watch the sunset over the beautiful Rocky Mountains. The restaurant is open for happy hour and dinner and is popular with those who frequent this ski resort town. There can be a bit of a wait for a table here, so you may as well start studying the menu.
Happy Hour at Aurum Food and Wine
The happy hour goes from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm every day and offers an eclectic choice of bar snacks at fifty percent off. The menu has some great choices.
You would never guess that the addictingly flavorful, crispy Brussels sprouts are loaded with vitamins, but they are. If “healthy appetizer” is too much of an oxymoron for you, you may want to try the wonderfully greasy and salty parmesan fries. If you are sharing, the large Aurum Nachos are a great choice, as they are loaded with white cheddar, black beans, crema, and jalapenos.
If you feel like splurging, the regular menu offers some innovative small plates, such as crab cakes with red pepper rouille and a sesame tuna crudo which contains raw tuna prepared with clementine red onion confit.
You can start off your meal at Aurum Food and Wine Steamboat with any one of the restaurant’s imaginative salads. The highlights include a whole leaf Caesar salad with the most flavorful croutons you’ve ever eaten or a simple green salad with shaved apples.
Dinner options offer some inventive pairings, such as a pan seared Scottish salmon that comes with a side of quinoa or a crab crusted halibut with wilted spinach. Vegetarians will love options such as the squash and roasted vegetable entrée.
Whatever you do, don’t skip dessert. Aurum Food and Wine Steamboat offers some delectable treats, such as the strawberry mousse tartlets and the salted caramel pudding with berries and shaved chocolate.
