Aspen Grille celebrates Native American Heritage Month with special menu

A bowl of pumpkin soup and a side of roasted pepitasStaff members of the Aspen Grille have planned a special menu to celebrate Native American Heritage Month on Thursday, October 31, and Friday, November 1. They’ve developed a three-course meal for the community to enjoy.

The meal will be $13 plus a gratuity. For the first course, guests will enjoy Pumpkin Soup with Roasted Pepitas. This will be followed by a choice of two entrees: a Braised Rabbit or an Arctic Char. Both entrees will be served with a side of Anasazi Beans and a side of Wild Rice with Cranberries. Guests will finish with Blackberry Cobbler and Sweet Corn Ice Cream.
