Viceroy adding hot-dog, oyster options to dining

Viceroy Snowmass is launching a slopeside hot-dog bar, an oyster bar and a series of wine dinners this ski season.

The hot-dog bar, which will be at the Nest restaurant, was inspired by Louisiana’s hot-dog carts and stands that executive chef Will Nolan saw while traveling home earlier this summer, according to a statement. It will offer sausages, hot dogs and toppings served on home-baked buns.

Nolan also is launching the oyster bar in the Viceroy’s Eight K restaurant, which will serve the East Coast and West Coast oysters on the half shell or shooter-style.

Eight K also will host some of the leading winemakers from California’s Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley in a series of wine dinners. Menus for a given dinner will be released a few weeks prior to the event, and tickets typically will start at $150 per person for four courses including wine pairings. The following wineries will be featured:

Dec. 11: Salvestrin Winery, St. Helena, Napa Valley.

Jan. 15: Trefethen Family Vineyards, Napa Valley.

Jan. 22: Benovia Wines, Russian River Valley, Sonoma.

Feb. 4: Sky Saddle Cellars, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma.

Feb. 25: Rudd Wines, Oakville, Napa Valley.

March 2: Spire Collection Wines from Napa Valley.

March 13: Opus One, Napa Valley (its first-ever winter wine dinner in Aspen/Snowmass).
