An undisclosed downtown Aspen location will be home to The Nice Guy restaurant later this year.

That’s according to a public relations firm representing The h.wood Group, a Los Angeles-based operator of upscale restaurants and lounges including Bootsy Bellows Aspen.

The new Aspen restaurant’s offerings will mirror the original Nice Guy establishment in Los Angeles.

“The eatery will function like their Los Angeles flagship, as a reservations-only, and will serve their signature menu of modern Italian-American cuisine and specialty libations, and the interiors will match as if one is dining at the original Nice Guy in Los Angeles,” a spokeswoman for EMC|Bowery, a West Hollywood, California-based PR firm, wrote in an email to The Aspen Times.

The Nice Guy in Los Angeles has generated buzz in the celebrity-laden city by attracting the Kardashians, Justin Beiber and John Legend, among others.

The website la.racked.com gushed “the space became an instant safe place for stars, thanks to its no-photos policy and notoriously strict door.”

John Terzian and Brian Toll own The h.wood Group.

Design and construction will be done by John Sofio of Built Inc. of Los Angeles.
