Classic Dining Experiences

Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro

A ski patrol shack-turned-après epicenter, where champagne is sprayed as often as it is sipped, Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro is perfect for your party even if you’re not partying. Standouts for sharing include the Raclette—which you cook for yourself on tabletop grills—and the decadent Gruyere Fondue.

Ajax Tavern

Home to a rocking après scene and the original truffle fries (which are too good not to share at the table), Ajax Tavern is your first stop after a ski day on Aspen, especially since it sits directly at the base of the mountain. Order the Ajax double cheeseburger, an elevated ode to the Double Double Animal Style from In and Out that features local wagyu beef. To warm your bones on a chilly day, try the tomato soup, which comes with a melty grilled cheese on the side.

For a DIY mountain lunch check out the Mongolian Grill at The Cliffhouse on Buttermilk. After selecting from a number of fresh proteins, vegetables, and sauces, pass your custom order to the chefs and watch them sizzle your selections on a huge flat-top grill. Dramatic views of Pyramid Peak and the Maroon Creek Valley are an added bonus.

Pancakes make people happy and Bonnie's has been putting smiles on skiers’ faces with their dinner plate-sized, oatmeal-based flapjacks for decades. The Strudel at this mid-mountain Aspen institution is epic too—and never say no to a healthy dollop of homemade whipped cream.

Going Gourmet

Element 47

The Little Nell’s fine dining option pairs mountain-inspired cuisine with a stellar wine program. The menu features locally sourced, seasonal ingredients in an elegant, art-filled setting. For a unique and educational experience, ask about the private wine tastings in the cellar, where many notable names are scrawled along the floor-to-ceiling wine racks.
