After a day on the slopes, enjoying a massage, or strolling though Aspen’s shops, finding just that right place for a bite, beverage, or gourmet meal is both a desire & a necessity.

To assist, we’ve compiled a list of Aspen’s restaurants – from cozy bistros to fine dining to pizza – and categorized them by the time of day they offer their delicacies:

  • Breakfast: Open in the morning with options ranging from pastries to full breakfasts to get your day started
  • Lunch: Open mid-day, serving light fare to grab and go, all the way to lunches meant to linger and savor
  • Après: Known as happy hour in non-ski season. Listings have a bar, probably some appetizers, preferably some good specials and are open in late afternoon and early evening
  • Dinner: Serving their offerings in the evening to about 10ish
  • Late: A good place to grab a beer, an after-dinner drink or a late night bite

Eat like a local – go for the bar specials

Here’s our short list of our favorite Aspen restaurants. One common thing you’ll note – bar specials. Go early, grab a drink & enjoy some great food at big savings.

  • Aspen Over Easy. If we eat breakfast out in Aspen, we eat it here.
  • Red Onion. Aspen’s oldest restaurant with a great bar and great happy hour beer prices.
  • J-Bar.  Always a fun crowd with a healthy number of locals.
  • Matsuhisa. Best sushi in town and good bar specials.
  • Ajax Tavern. Best location (base of the gondola) for people watching.
  • Brexi. Good bar menu deals.
  • Cache Cache. Prettiest bar in Aspen. Again, good bar menu specials.
  • Mezzaluna. Guess what – great après menu! Our go-to-spot for pizza.

Bon Appétit!
