Traveler’s Table’s Spring Menu Inspired by Delicacies from Fave Destinations, Near and Far

MONTROSE HOT SPOT Traveler’s Table has always been about exploring the world through food and drink. And they’re ready for a new adventure with menu items that range from Hill Country and Louisiana faves to far-off delicacies of Asia and Europe.


The new starters are inspired by destinations close to home: The Hillcountry Venison Tartare has mesquite-smoked venison with fried capers and hatch-chile vinaigrette, served with potato chips. Also southern-inspired is the Louisiana BBQ shrimp, dished out with potato grits and good ol’ country bread. Both pair well with the Southern Gentleman old fashioned with charred mesquite-pecan syrup. Yeehaw!

If your palate is calling for something more European, the new Lobster Risotto should satisfy. It’s topped with a dramatic green parmesan foam and lobster oil. The savory dish pairs nicely with the fruity, springtime cocktail Wine Merchant of Venice which is Traveler’s Table’s take on an aeprol spritz. Finish it off with the perfectly fluffy Burnt Basque Cheesecake.

Or divert over to Asia and try the Korean Japchae. It’s sweet-potato glass noodles and tempeh, a meat substitute made from fermented soybeans. It might be hard to pick, but the experts, Traveler’s Table owners Matthew and Thy Mitchell, have their favorites. “If we had to make our personal picks, we'd order the Louisiana BBQ shrimp, Hill Country Venison Tartare, Roasted Artichoke Salad and Lobster Risotto.”

Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.
