Steakhouse No. 316R

Reservations are a must as this is one of the hottest tables in town. Owner’s Craig and Samantha Cordts-Pearce know a thing or two about the restaurant business. They own four of the top restaurants in Aspen including The Wild Fig, Brexi, and CP Burger. The steaks are delicious with the homemade Chimichurri sauce and the branding iron onion rings are worth every calorie. . Check out their menu at

Matsuhisa Aspen is heaven on earth. The charismatic Nobu and the charming Nobuko Kang created what has become an Aspen institution. True Aspen locals never look at the menu, they order treats like “New Style Salmon” and “Yellowtail Jalepeno” by rote. Reservations are a must

Casa Tua

Many know Casa Tua from Miami, but Casa Tua Aspen is an entirely unique experience. It is both a restaurant and a night club. Owner Micky Grendene spends as much time as possible in Aspen to keep everything running smoothly and to perfect his top ski racing skills. The Casa Tua Ski Team is a force to be reckoned with.  Try the Casa Tua Ravioli with Burrata, it is a trip to Italy in every bite, especially when followed by the filet with foie gras.
