Aspen Dining – “5 Top Stops”

1. The restaurant at the St Regis – formerly known as ‘Olives’ – The dining facility at the St Regis has fantastic food. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet. It is world class. It definitely has ambiance and top flite service, but for the most part lacks the “scene” of some of the other picks as well as others that did not make the top 5. Generally the dining room is not crowded. Stands at the top for the extremely high quality of the food with pleasing service as well. Serving breakfast from 7 to 11, lunch from 11:30 to 2, and dinner from 6 to 10. If you go for lunch try the burger.

2. Brexi – This hot spot has the ambiance, food as well as the ‘scene’. The filet mignon is absolutely to die for, the best I have ever had. Salads are wonderful for those seeking lighter fare. Attractive wait staff and attention to detail with presentation bring this eatery to #2 on my Aspen Dining “5 Top Stops”

3. L’Hostoria – Owners Titizano and Enrica Gortan serve up authentic Italian cuisine with side of hospitality in this old time Aspen favorite. With every ingredient hand made on site it is no wonder that they just celebrated their 15 anniversary in a town where restaurants come and go with the snow!

4. Jimmy’s – Another old time favorite. Jimmy’s has somewhat of a casual atmosphere and the bar can get somewhat rowdy especially late. The food is good and the menu tends to be more conservative / “fierce American” than the other selections on the list. If you are looking for a good time, a great steak and a Manhattan to top it off Jimmy’s is just the ticket.

5. Boogies – This is another Aspen Institution. Boogie Wineglass has done much for both local and national charities. The ambiance is Americana Diner ala 1950. It definitely is in a different class than the 4 above mentioned stops, however if you come to Aspen you need to eat here.

Honorable mention – The Hickory House AKA “The Hick” – best BBQ west of the Mississippi – combined with a decided lack of ambiance! Worth a stop however. The Ajax Tavern – slope side fine dining what more can you ask for, people watching at the base of the Gondola for Apres Ski. The Cantina – good Mexican food and bar with reasonable prices in the core.

You may agree or disagree – let me know feel free to leave a comment!

Generally speaking the older you are and the worse heath you are in the higher your premiums will be.  If you smoke your premiums will be anywhere from double to triple than for non smokers.
