In the winter, Aspen can be described as the little town you’d find in a snowglobe. That’s pretty romantic already. But if you’re really looking to impress here are some dining options that will do the job.
1 Pine Creek Cookhouse
If a horse-drawn sleigh-ride into a snowy alpine retreat for delicious food doesn't sound romantic, then Cupid doesn't like Valentine's Day either. Pine Creek offers an experience, complete with bundling up for a sleigh ride or cross-country ski into the wilderness for a gourmet meal that starts with a glass of champagne and ends with tiramisu.
2 Cache Cache
3 Brexi Brasserie
Come for the decadent French food, but linger for the checkered black-and-white floors, richly textured fabrics and French singer softly cooing from the speakers. The warm chocolate truffle cake is a tasty finish to boeuf bourguignon and lobster carbonara, and a delicious way into your dining partner's heart.
4 Lynn Britt Cabin
If date night falls on a weekday, head up on Tuesday or Thursday to the snowcat-only accessed restaurant Lynn Britt on Snowmass Mountain. The meal includes a choice of grilled buffalo sirloin, pan-roasted pheasant breast or Chilean sea bass for entrée course, paired with a charcuterie plate, soup course, family-style salad course and banana-Nutella bread pudding to finish. With the live acoustic music and the awesome food, you'll forget you're miles from home.
For 25 years, Pinons has been one of the town's favorite dining locales. Striking views of Aspen Mountain, consistently stellar food and coveted reservations put a smile on any date's face. The award-winning cuisine and excellent service mean that even just a night out feels like a special experience.
