Why go? Located at the base of Ajax and above The Little Nell resort, this is an Aspen classic for casual fine dining in an unbeatable atmosphere. Arrive and let the people-watching begin; there’s no better seat in town.
What to order? Try their tomato or french onion soup, both delicious and warming after a day on the slopes. Looking for something heartier? Get the signature lamb bolognese or beloved Ajax Wagyu double cheeseburger. If you are feeling fancy, order the oysters and truffle fries.
Pipsqueak tip The kids menu is wonderful. It has all the usual suspects (pasta with marinara sauce), but also includes some more sophisticated options (salmon, petite steak) for children with a more adventurous appetite.
