Special to the Daily

Vail chef Barry Robinson has cooked for Hollywood actors and rock stars, Wall Street magnates and Vegas casino owners in his time working for the private Game Creek Club on Vail Mountain. Now, as November brings the opening of ski season, Antlers at Vail announces the opportunity for hotel guests to enjoy a personal Dine Like a Celebrity experience as he creates a customized four-course private chef dinner in the comfort of their Antlers suite.

“For some time, Antlers has been providing Chef Barry’s delicious dining to guests in a variety of ways,” said Magda King, the general manager. “These new private chef dinners give us a fresh way to pamper our guests with a fun and personal dining experience. After all, at the end of a long day on the slopes, who hasn’t wanted to sip wine by the fire while a private chef begins prepping in the kitchen — or slide onto a stool at the kitchen island to watch a real chef at work while chatting about favorite foods and flavors?”

On Robinson part, he’s looking forward to the new adventure.

“I think the experience of being a private chef is just as exciting for the chef as it is for the customer enjoying the meal,” he said. “It’s rewarding to understand your diners in a more personal way that allows you to customize the menu to their taste right in the moment, coming up with beautifully designed eat-with-their-eyes dishes that will be a lasting memory for years to come.”

For the upcoming winter season’s new in-suite meals, Robinson will start guests off with a choice of appetizers such as mini filet mignon with red onion jam, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, crab cakes with tequila honey lime glaze and shots of tomato basil soup with grilled cheese on rye. A salad built to complement the entrée will follow the appetizer, and then guests will enjoy a personalized main course from their choice of beef tenderloin, salmon, chicken or vegetable gnocchi, accompanied by local and seasonal sides — all topped off with a signature chef’s dessert.
