Close up of a man enjoying a meal with chopsticks in a restaurantStaff members of the Aspen Grille have planned a special menu to celebrate Asian Pacific Islander and Desi American Heritage Month on Thursday, April 11, and Friday, April 12. They’ve developed a three-course meal for the community to enjoy.

The meal will be $13. For the first course, guests will enjoy Arroz Caldo, which is a Filipino-Style ginger and garlic Rice Soup that is more commonly known as a rice “porridge.” This will be followed by a choice of two entrees: a braised Filipino Pork Belly Adobo or a stir-fried Pancit with Tofu. Guests will finish with Banana Lumpia and Salted Caramel.

Reservations recommended

The Aspen Grille is located on the top floor of the LSC, through the University Club, in room 388.

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.

Student-operated restaurant

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.
