Top Pick

Eco Goddess (Carbondale)

All ingredients are over 95% organic. They’ve got gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, soy-free, nut-free, and any other “free” you can think of.  Check out the juice bar drinks ~ named after Gods/Goddesses.  Recommend the “Apollo”.  Hats off to Lisa for keeping it real and healthy!



Asie’s the place to go for yummie chinese fusion. They have healthy lunch and happy hour specials that not only taste great, but are quite affordable  too considering it’s Aspen!  Try the Asie Seafood Ceviche…delicious!



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.


Kenichi Aspen

A step or two up from Takah, Kenichi just underwent a gorgeous makeover to reflect their contemporary Asian cuisine.  Sit at the sushi bar and watch the funny and talented sushi chefs work their magic.  Or for a more intimate dining experience — grab a booth. Order the Blake roll, named after a former employee who passed away.


Russets (Carbondale)

A neighborhood favorite, Russets has been delivering great service and exceptional food to residents of Carbondale and beyond for years. They have a great bar area and a nice side patio for those perfect summer evenings in Colorado.  They use only the freshest ingredients. Certified angus beef has no anti-biotics or hormones.  Gluten free options too.  Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence in 2010!  Love it.


Takah Sushi

This has been a long-time local favorite since the 80’s (different location).  If you want good sushi (caterpillar roll ~ yum!), great sake, lots of locals and fun entertainment (Guitarist Cameron Williams even plays there on occasion), go here.


Garnish Restaurant (Snowmass)

A just-opened Randy Placeras restaurant, Garnish serves up healthy meals (lunch, dinner and apres ski) in the Snowmass Timberline Condos.  Chef Clark Church adds a unique “garnish” that completes every dish and adds a little fun to the plate.
