The Silver Aspen Bistro & Barista, located inside Platte Valley Medical Center, will change your perception of hospital food; this is not your parents’ hospital fare.
Adjacent to the main hospital lobby awaits the Bistro’s expansive gourmet salad bar that includes a dual selection of daily homemade soups, a wood-fired oven that yields flavorful pizzas and calzones, casseroles, and hot desserts; a made-to-order sandwich deli that creates a variety of favorites; and a grill where fanciful wonders such as goat cheese and red pepper sandwiches and breakfast omelets are brought forth next to garden burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches and old fashioned hamburgers! The Barista carries Starbucks coffee and other familiar drinks, like lattes, mochas, coffees, chai teas and iced frappuccino drinks.
The creative mind behind the ovens is Chef Mike Anderson. He has been cooking for over 30 years and loves every minute of it. “I love the ability to try new dishes and share my passion for food,” exclaims Chef Mike. “Years ago, I graduated from college with a degree in Geology, but had difficultly finding my place in the field. I had always enjoyed cooking and decided to find a new career path. Cooking seemed a natural fit for me.” Thirty years later, after learning from the best in the business at premier hotels and five-star restaurants, he exclaims that he’s “happy to be here (at PVMC), working with a wonderful staff.”
Included among Chef Mike’s culinary specials are London Broil, Jambalaya, Blackened Salmon, and Anaheim Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta. Menu items rotate over a four-week cycle so there’s always something new to try. The best time to experience the Silver Aspen Bistro is during the breakfast and lunch, when there’s a full compliment of culinary choices.
