Deer Valley will donate a portion of the proceeds they receive from their crowd favorite Seafood Buffet to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The plan to donate 1% from the Tuesday night offering for the duration of the 2011 winter season.
Deer Valley’s Seafood Buffet is located at the Snow Park Lodge at the Resort base, from 6 – 9 p.m. It is closed Sundays and Wednesdays. A wide variety of fresh seafood, including sushi, chilled shellfish, hot seafood appetizers and entrées as well as roasted duck, pasta and prime rib and a baker’s dozen of fabulous housemade desserts from Deer Valley Bakery are included in the price. Fine wines and cocktails are available as well.
“We are very particular about the types of seafood we serve at Seafood Buffet,” explains Julie Wilson, the Resort’s Director of Food and Beverage, “and we wanted to give back to ocean life. Not only are we members of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but we use their excellent resources on an almost daily basis,” she explains. “The Monterey Bay Aquarium maintains the best and most up-to-date list of sustainable seafood in the country. The list lets us know what we should and should not be serving in our Deer Valley restaurants and we monitor it vigilantly, only serving the most sustainable seafood possible at Seafood Buffet and our other restaurants.”
