Food for thought

Dear Editor:As we enter another off-season in the continuing Great Recession of 2011 there are some bright spots still shining …We are fortunate to have some of the finest dining establishments available anywhere, in our own backyard. But don’t take it for granted … the Aspen area has attracted some of the most talented restaurateurs in the country. These hardworking local families who run these great restaurants have cut prices to survive, yet maintain an extremely high quality cuisine, and rely largely on the local population (you and I) to keep operating. Just two of many worthy examples of this are the Pitkin County Steakhouse and Tavern (carrying on the Aspen tradition of the longtime locals’ favorite Steak Pit with fresh, creative food offerings) and the Downvalley Tavern in El Jebel, which has an incomparable Italian menu.So don’t wait too long; stop in soon and support our friends and neighbors in the restaurant business, and treat yourself to some incredible food at very reasonable prices .Scott SmithCarbondaleI
