Though Asie touts itself as Asian fusion, the specialties here fall in the line of Chinese food. Its Dim Sum menu is the most thorough in town, and includes lobster, shrimp and spinach variations. Everyone knows the the restaurants Happy Hour is one of the best in town, where Dim Sum is just $5 and Tsing Tao is $3.
2 Little Ollie's
For more than 18 years, Little Ollie's has been Aspen's "casual Chinese" restaurant. It's the sister outpost to Asie, so diners can expect the same tasty food and service in a more laid-back atmosphere. Small plates like traditional spring rolls and crab rangoon are a great way to start a meal, and everyone loves a fortune cookie to finish it.
3 Zheng's Bistro
Zheng's is so popular in the Roaring Fork Valley that it has two locations: one in Basalt and another in Glenwood Springs. Chef Ming "Henry" Zheng and his dedication to the ancient art of "Wok Hay" inspire everything on the menus, from potstickers and lettuce wraps to fish ceviche.
