Vail Valley business briefs, Dec. 19
Atwater, the new restaurant at the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa, is set to open Dec. 22. The restaurant, which replaces Chaps Grill Chophouse, is the final phase of the propertys $30 million renovation project. The new restaurant will feature contemporary American cuisine prepared by Chef Anthony Mazza. Taking part in creating a new dining experience at Vail Cascade has been extraordinary, Mazza said. Weve been able to take a four-star experience and give it a homespun, interactive approach. The result is two-thirds tavern and one third fine dining and that translates to a perfectly approachable option for both local residents and guests to the resort.Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Atwater will serve farm-fresh foods and organic products when available from regional farms including Meadow Mountains and Haystack. Mazza has worked with renowned Vail Valley chefs including Kelly Liken, Daniel Joly and Thomas Salamunovich.For more information or to reserve a table at Atwater (beginning Jan. 1), call 970-479-7014.
