Cuvée World Bistro was created by Mitch and Krystal Levy
in 2003 in Tucson Arizona.
The philosophy was to create a restaurant that showcased the relationship between food and wine. Chef Mitch Levy has been pairing the two together at his signature wine dinners at other restaurants like Sage at the Snowmass Club in Snowmass Village Colorado, just outside of Aspen. The theory of the restaurant has always been to show that you can have fantastic food and amazing wine together without being overpriced. Cuvée has always been a place that locals could visit many times per week because of the reasonable prices and the casual service. “We built the restaurant on personal relationships from the employees to the guests” Krystal says. “We feel that our first responsibility is to our friends and family, our employees and guests are both to us” Mitch Adds. The desire of Cuvée has always been to create an atmosphere where locals felt welcome all the time, where the guests felt like family and came back time and again to share time, stories, memories and to create more of each.
Mitch and Krystal started Cuvée in Basalt, just outside of Aspen, in July of 2007 and split time between the two locations. After traveling back and forth between the two locations, Mitch and Krystal decided to sell the Tucson location so they could concentrate on their Colorado store, getting Krystal back to the town in which she was born and both of them back to more of their family. They sold the Tucson location in November of 2007.
Cuvée World Bistro will continue to provide the service that Mitch and Krystal have become famous for. The food at Cuvée will always keep the entire dining experience and the relationship between food and wine at the forefront whenever Chef Mitch is developing the seasonally changing menus. Monthly wine dinners have started and the private dining room with seating up to 40 will take care of anyone having rehearsal dinners, business meetings, cocktail receptions, holiday parties and anything you can think of gathering for.
“Please let our family take care of yours, you won’t be disappointed!”
