The Aspen List

FOR BREAKFAST:

  • Sant Ambroeus: Just opened this year! Always the best... 
  • Spring Cafe: Great for a healthy breakfast or lunch. 

  • Prospect at Hotel Jerome: For a seated breakfast, Jerome's restaurant is lovely. 
  • Paradise Bakery: You could smell this bakery from a mile away. Go for a coffee and pastry or an afternoon delight. 
  • Gorsuch Ski Cafe: If you're looking for an espresso before skiing, this is a great stop. 
  • Bonnies (on Aspen Mountain): Go in the morning and get their oatmeal pancakes with their homemade raspberry jam! A shot of whisky couldn't hurt either... 
  • JUS Aspen: Go for fresh juices, teas, and healthy salads.

FOR LUNCH:

  • Clark’s Oyster Bar: Lunch is always great here, go for oysters, tuna sandwiches with shoe string fries and whole roasted fish. 
  • Ajax Tavern: On a nice day, sit outside and enjoy a french onion soup or the burger and truffle fries. 
  • White House Tavern: From the Hillstone group, go for their deviled eggs and sandwiches. 
  • Meat & Cheese Farm Shop: Go for their soups and salads or if you need to pick up some cheese and charcuterie this is a great spot for that. 

 

FOR DINNER: 

  • Matsuhisa: Probably the best sushi in Aspen. Always a hit. 
  • Casa Tua: Romantic and cozy upscale Italian. Go for their mushroom pappardelle and their veal Milanese. 
  • Campo de Fiori: Laid back Italian that is always delicious. 
  • French Alpine Bistro: Also great for apres or lunch. Go for red wine, cheese fondue, onion soup and the burger. I love coming here for a cozy Euro vibe. 
  • Las Montanas: A newer spot on the list that I love. Mexican classics served in an upscale and fun setting. 
  • Cache Cache: A french Aspen classic. A little stuffy, but the food and drinks are great. 

FOR SLEEP:

  • St. Regis: A classic at the foot of the mountain. You will get everything you need here with a great spa. 
  • Hotel Jerome: A bit cooler and more edgy. Rooms are on the smaller side, but always chic and fun to stay here. Great bar downstairs with a Felix coffee shop next door. 
  • Little Nell: A ski in ski out property with an elegant and elevated feel to it.

  • Aspen Art Museum 
  • Rent bikes from Aspen Bikes (summer/spring)
