Restaurants Guide

One might not assume that Aspen and Snowmass Village has a restaurant scene as dynamic and vaunted as a coastal city, but thanks to the voracious appetites of our guests—and the curious-by-nature tastes of locals—we do.

While everyone’s definition of “dining out” has changed dramatically in the last year, our definition of what nourishes the soul has not. Order takeout or dine al fresco when allowed. Just know that you are helping to preserve one of the top small-town dining scenes in America just by being here. Thank you, and bon appetit!

Calling All Foodies

Aspen and Snowmass Village have burnished an international reputation for excellent restaurants. Much of this stems from the towns' residents and visitors, who bring their global tastes to the table in a pursuit for new and innovative tastes. And local chefs are happy to oblige. Adding to the area's culinary cred is the Aspen Food & Wine Classic — which has been rescheduled for September 2021 — which is attended by celebrated chefs and A-listers alike. Without a doubt, the event is a progressive incubator of culinary ideas, which has a major impact on the local dining scene.
