There will finally be a place to grab drinks in the Aspen Airport Business Center. Roxy’s Market is a popular upvalley stop for to-go food, locally sourced groceries and a fine selection of food products. Now, the owners are taking it one step further and hoping customers will linger with the build-out of a restaurant in the adjacent space, which will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serve wine, beer and spirits, the Aspen Daily News reported.
The upscale grocery store opened in 2009. Since then, it’s gained a steady stream of clientele, from local residents in the nearby North 40 neighboorhood to travelers getting ready to board planes across the street at the Pitkin County Airport. The owners are in the middle of reconstructing a 3,000-foot space, which used to be home to the Blue Sky Cafe. They plan to serve wood-fired pizzas and capitalize on an outdoor patio space during warmer months. The restaurant is set to open in February.
