Aspen, CO Dining

The restaurants in Aspen are always changing and evolving. Many members of the Hotel Lenado staff have lived in Aspen for a decade or more and are always willing to give you our dining recommendations and let you in on the local secrets.

Even the ratings websites can’t agree on the best restaurant in Aspen: Yelp, TripAdvisor, Urbanspoon and others each have nominated different choices. That’s good for you: with so much great dining in Aspen, you’ll never have trouble finding a different and top-quality restaurant to try!

Here we name just a few of the many options and varieties there are to choose from. Some of the best-rated options across the board include Matsuhisa’s Japanese and Sushi, The White House Tavern’s American sandwiches, Kenichi’s Asian cuisine and Aspen Hickory House for barbecue. Luckily for you, the first three options are within blocks of the Hotel Lenado!

Other international options include Above the Salt for Italian selections and the amazing variety of French wines and dishes at Brexi Brasserie.

If you find you’re on the go or in the mood for something a bit more casual, Aspen’s selection of restaurants also has you covered. For a big menu of gourmet wraps, tacos and salads, try The Big Wrap on Durant Avenue, just six blocks from the Hotel Lenado. Pyramid Bistro’s vegetarian menu provides a super-healthy lunch or snack, while its location above Explore Booksellers alone makes it worth a visit.
