Aspen-area winter dining options
What’s open in Aspen, Snowmass Village and Basalt
Restaurants in the upper Roaring Fork Valley are adjusting to pandemic-related restrictions. As of Jan. 17, Pitkin County has moved to Red Level restrictions, meaning there is no indoor dining and outdoor dining only can have members of the same household sitting together. Last call for alcohol is 9:30 p.m. and outdoor dining and restaurants must close at 10 p.m. Here’s a list submitted by operators of eateries. For more information, call ahead or check their websites. If you are a restaurateur and want to be added to our list, click here to go to the form or email reporter Austin Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Note: With the move back to the Red Level on Jan. 17, we are asking restaurants previously listed to resubmit a form with updated information to be added back to the list.
