Staff members of the Aspen Grille have planned a special menu to celebrate Black History Month on Thursday, Feb. 20, and Friday, Feb. 21. They’ve developed a three-course meal for the community to enjoy.
The meal will be $13 plus a gratuity. A non-alcoholic beverage is included. For the first course, guests will enjoy corn bread with honey butter. This will be followed by a choice of two entrees: a jerk chicken with jollof rice and plantains; or a fried, cornmeal crusted catfish with black-eyed peas and yams. Guests will finish with rum cake.
The Aspen Grille is located on the top floor of the LSC, through the University Club, in room 388. Seating is limited, so making a reservation is recommended, especially when Aspen Grille is serving a special. For same-day reservations, call the Aspen Grille from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at (970) 491-7006. Walk-ins are also welcome.
Open every week Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., diners are encouraged to take a peek at their menu for this semester and join the Aspen Grille staff at this upscale, high-quality restaurant with reasonable prices.
The Aspen Grille serves as a hands-on student laboratory for the Hospitality Management program in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, while providing an exceptional dining option to the campus and community. Students who work in the Aspen Grille are usually part of the HM program, although the class is open to any major. The program provides students with experience in food and lodging operations.
