New Italian eatery coming to Residences at Little Nell

A high-end Italian restaurant is coming to Aspen to complement the pricey Residences at Little Nell at the base of Aspen Mountain.Il Mulino, based in New York and run by restaurateur Jerry Katzoff, will bring its gourmet, traditional cuisine to the development. Aspen’s location is one of several of the brand-name restaurants starting out around the country. It is slated to open in early 2008.The dishes are based on traditional food from the northern Abruzzi region of Italy, as well as made-from-scratch pastas and sauces. Also on the menu are heartier dishes like veal chops and rack of lamb.The restaurant also features an extensive wine list with more than 200 Italian wines from the Piedmont and Tuscany regions.Katzoff said the goal for Il Mulino is to simply create traditional, tasty meals in a rustic Italian atmosphere.”We’re doing one thing, and we’re doing it right,” Katzoff said.Chefs at the various locations are trained at the original restaurant in New York.”This is service-oriented,” said Jill Jellinek Katz, who handles public relations for the restaurant. “That’s what people expect from the name.”Katzoff’s wife, Lee, said diners can expect modern decor combined with rustic Italian woodwork and atmosphere.The Residences at Little Nell is under construction at the base of Aspen Mountain. Fractional shares at the residence hotel are fetching record prices.
