New Year’s Eve at Roaring Fork

Toast to another year with a delicious meal at Roaring Fork this New Year’s Eve, Thursday, December 31st beginning at 4:00 p.m. Executive Chef Israel Medina will be cooking up a specialty Lobster and Steak offering in addition to seasonal menu items available that evening only.

Guests are welcomed by the warm, rotisserie fire and the outdoor fireplace while indulging in signature menu items such as the Wood Grilled Premium Center Cut 8oz Filet Mignon; Sugar Cured Duck Breast; Braised Beef Short Ribs; Double-Cut Pork Chop and Cedar Planked Salmon.

Toast with the crowd favorite — a huckleberry margarita— a classic martini, Manhattan, or a glass of wine.

Roaring Fork’s Wood Fired Cooking captures the spirit of bold American cuisine, creating flavors that crackle with a rugged edge. In the Old West, the best food was prepared on a simple wood fire.

This same spirit, freshness, and flavor are at the heart of every dish served at Roaring Fork. Select from lamb, chicken, beef, pork, and fresh fish entrees all perfectly prepared by wood fire rotisserie, open flame grill, or wood oven roasting.

  • Steak & Lobster $62.00; a la carte menu items vary
