The Blonde Bear Tavern and Café Naranaja better than ever!
Jon Mudder, spending his second season in Taos Ski Valley, building on the menu introduced last year with more locally sourced ingredients and tapping into some of the area's fresh local game dishes. Jon hails from the critically acclaimed BELLAVITAE in New York's Greenwich Village, where he was Executive Chef and owner. Also returning this year are a top notch crew of servers including locally famed Wine Manager and Mixologist Rushan Perera.
"Skiing originated in Europe and was refined in world-famous resorts throughout the Alps," says Jon. "Our menu gives you a taste of classic dishes from those regions interpreted through the casual laid-back attitude for which Taos Ski Valley is known."
"We call it 'Alpine Comfort Food,'" he adds. "The flavors are very familiar to the American palate, but the origins - like those of Taos Ski Valley - are European. We add some American classic dishes too. When designing the menu, I asked myself, 'After skiing one of the world's famously challenging mountains, what would I want to eat?'"
The restaurant's from-scratch menu uses ingredients sourced locally in New Mexico whenever possible, with an emphasis on organic producers.
The Tavern's wine list was carefully crafted to pair well with the new menu, featuring wines from France, Italy, Austria, and the United States.
