The Thirsty Squirrel’s food menu continues to improve each winter. Last winter food was upgraded from your classic pub fare of nachos and nachos grande to include quesadillas and warm artichoke dip, as well as potato skins and hummus.
This season, however, the Squirrel has kicked it up a notch by bringing in Hungry Tuna Sushi. Seriously, what could be better than a pitcher of beer or a glass of wine, some edamame, followed by one or two of at least a dozen roll choices? Besides having the game on (which the Squirrel has covered with large flat-screen TVs) – not much, really.
Two dedicated sushi chefs craft hand rolls on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evenings. Starting off with either warm miso soup or fresh edamame and the adult beverage of your choice, you begin to realize this is not your ordinary apres ski.
Moving on to rolls, the “Solitude,” a decadent creation of Salmon, Creme Fraiche, Lemon Zest, Avocado and Sesame Seed which your taste buds will thank you for. The Sunrise roll mixes Salmon and Tuna, along with Sprouts, Flying Fish Roe and Avocado in an Eel Sauce, which adds a ton of extra flavor.
