Top PickNew York Pizza 

Got the munchies before heading home?  Hit New York Pizza on the Hyman Avenue Mall (upstairs) for a slice.  Delicious pizza, especially if you’ve been out carousing around town.  And thank heavens they’re open til 2:30!



Elevation just celebrated their 12th anniversary (12/12), and they’re still as much a favorite as when they opened.  One of the originals located on Restaurant Row, Elevation combines great service and ambiance with really delicious food and wine (over 400 choices).  And they have a late night menu that makes it worth your while for a late night visit ~ order the Thai Green Curry.


Jimmy’s Aspen

If you are running late for dinner and want a better place than pizza that’s still taking orders, try Jimmy’s.  Food is delicious and the waiters try their best to accommodate you, even if it’s later than usual.  Or, order a drink from Farrah the bartender while you wait for dinner! BTW: their Mac ‘n Cheese side dish is sinfully good!



There’s a new “pies and pints” place in town (located on Cooper Street).   Open til 2 am, Ryno’s is another option for those with the late night munchies!


Creperie du Village

If you’re looking for a hot new spot with character and to-die-for crepes, this is it.  It’s offers a full bar, patio, al fresco dining, takeout and to-go and every kind of  sweet and savory crepe imaginable (and fondue!).  As they say, “we melt for you!”  Open til 1:30 am.


Justice Snow’s

Bentley’s used to be the hot spot in the Aspen Wheeler Opera House (I’m flashing back to the ’80s now!), but now it’s the friendly and affordable Justice Snow’s.  Still a favorite local hangout, Chef Jonathan cooks up some delicious dishes: grilled Idaho red trout, ribeye, roasted acorn squash, Angus burgers, tempura asparagus and good ole 4 cheese mac & cheese.  You won’t leave hungry. (open until midnight).


Zane’s Tavern (Snowmass)

A sports bar, restaurant and most definitely locals’ favorite, Zane’s Tavern is fun every night (at least that’s always been the case for us!).  Play pool, foosball, and of course, Golden Tee…or jam out to their Internet Jukebox.  You’ll always find lots of locals hamming it up here.  Great place.
