Best Menu Reinvention
AL: Before this year, the fusty après-ski bar Hyde Away Inn & Restaurant was barely on my radar. But general manager Bruce Hyde Jr. and chef Ryan Mayo have remade the inn’s eatery into a localvore destination. When I visited in September, I flipped for the Parmesan-flavored risotto cakes in smoked-tomato sauce and the buttery duck Reuben. Looking at the latest menu, I know I’ll have to return for the braised-oxtail grilled cheese with marrow butter and pork-fat wings.
