What to Eat
Aspen, Colorado


Element 47

Relax and enjoy refined American fare with Colorado flair served in warm, elegant quarters in The Little Nell hotel. It’s been called Aspen’s “finest spot to wine, dine and unwind.” The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine —for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner, 7 days a week.


Pyramid Bistro

Pyramid Bistro is the first ‘nutritarian’ restaurant, meaning customers consume the most nutrients per calorie. Although every item on the menu can be ordered with meat prepared in a healthy way, all the recipes are originally and uniquely vegetarian. One of Aspen’s most innovative and creative places to dine, Pyramid Bistro is located right above Explore Booksellers and will leave visitors feeling refreshed, invigorated and cleansed after dinner.


HOPS Culture

When craving good old American comfort food, visit HOPS Culture, which prides itself on serving up-scale American classics from creamy mac ‘n cheese to succulent ribs. Even better is the list of over 200 beers from all over the world, 30 of which are on tap. It’s that impressive collection which marks HOPS Culture for what it is: an exciting, craft-beer focused heaven. With a brick interior, this restaurant creates a welcoming and fun atmosphere for relaxing after a day on the slopes.
