Silver Fork soiree

Story and pictures by May Eynon

To release its latest issue, Aspen Magazine hosted a reception at the St. Regis in June. Since a major remodel was under way at the hotel, the party was held at the recently renovated Mill Street Club (formerly the site of Whiskey Rocks). Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s November 2003 Readers’ Choice Awards ranked the St. Regis, Aspen, among the top 20 hotels in North America. Now on the stands, Aspen Magazine’s Summer 2004 issue showcases its first annual Silver Fork Awards, which honor Aspen’s best restaurants, chefs, hosts, dishes and more. Many of the winners attended the event, and sauntered around the new Mill Street Club and the popular outdoor patio next to it.”The awards were given out to local restaurants and chefs and we were pleased to have those winners, along with our loyal advertisers and readers, join us in celebrating the issue and the winners,” explained Aspen Magazine marketing manager Casey Wood.Chefs Kevin Walton and Roman Kettler of the Phoenician in Arizona, another hotel in the Starwood Properties group that owns the St. Regis, prepared risotto with wild mushrooms for the reception alongside chef Phil Evans of the St. Regis.”There are copies of the current Aspen Magazine in the rooms at the St. Regis, so the first thing I did when I got here was look through it,” said Walton. “What I noticed first and liked most about it was how vibrant the pages look and how highly detailed it is. I found it very informative.”Look for the magazine’s upcoming issue on local and national newsstands starting July 13. The Midsummer issue is dedicated to culture and the arts in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley.To contact May to send info, insight or invites, e-mail:
