Shawn Boris from Montauk in Vail called recently to crow about the restaurant’s chef.

It seems Dimitri Souvorin, a good Southern man, came into the restaurant on Monday, his day off, to cook up a mess ‘o gumbo for a Vail Mardi Gras contest.

Souvorin’s efforts were rewarded with the title of Best Gumbo in Vail.



Nice work, chef!
