STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A new name, a new menu and the same riverside location has restaurant owner Kier Delaney excited about what he is bringing to Yampa Street.
“Our menu is certainly similar to others in town, but nobody has this location,” Delaney said. “My goal is to give people value. There is not really an affordable place on the river, so I want to put out really good food for a good value.”
Delaney has changed the name of his long-running business Sake2U, which offered sushi and Asian-inspired foods, to 609 Yampa. Delaney said he would have loved to continue to offer the menu at Sake2U, but getting and keeping a sushi chef in Steamboat Springs proved to be too much of a challenge. Making it work financially during the slower season was always hard for the 120- to 200-seat restaurant.
