Terra Bistro, the restaurant inside Vail Mountain Resort & Spa, is celebrating its 17-year anniversary through Wednesday, December 16 with a special menu that features dishes from the past 17 years, including a "drunken" pork chop and sweet potato ravioli salad with crumbled blue cheese, walnuts, sage and thyme in a sherry vinaigrette.
The kicker is that the dishes will be flashback-priced to the menu rates in 1992, the year Terra Bistro opened. Adjusted for inflation, that means your 32-buck entrée would look something more like $21. NOTE: The actual prices aren't published on the website, however, so don't hold them to my fictional calculation.
Reservations can be made by calling 970-476-6836. If you go, let us know if they bring anything else back from 1992, besides the prices. Because if Achy Breaky Heart is playing during dinner, we all deserve fair warning.
