A recently renovated local establishment, Pinons was as much a favorite 22 years ago as it is today. Everyone’s a VIP here; you won’t leave disappointed. An extensive wine list to go with the incredible menu. And their expanded bar offers great specials.
Named for silver on the periodic table, the newly opened (November 2012) Element 47 toasts the glory of Aspen’s flavorful mining history. Super sleek design, distinctive and artistic cuisine from Chef Robert McCormick, a wine wall to die for with a team of sommeliers to pour it, Element 47 is located in the distinguished Little Nell Hotel.
This is the place to go in town if you want the best seafood. Order the Lobster Bisque and the Sea Scallops! Great martinis too. And people watching. A romantic spot as well.
This long time favorite recently changed locations to Restaurant Row, and their already incredible menu got even better. Chic ambience. Incredible wine list. This restaurant is most definitely a special treat all the way around.
The best sushi in Aspen, Matsuhisha is definitely worth a visit. The freshest sushi, a great ambiance, and wonderful sake (and martinis!). Order the black cod with miso which is to die for (same goes for the yellowtail jalapeno)! It’s always a great time here, upstairs and down.
Cache Cache always delights. Another recently transformed restaurant, this establishment serves delicious food and wine. Great for people watching too.
