    Ute City Bar and Grill: Ute City Bar and Grill

    by goingsolo Updated Jan 15, 2005

    Ute City Bar and Grill is casual and laid back and the service is friendly. It is a popular lunch spot and, once you've tasted the sandwiches, its easy to see why. The panninis are recommended, but I went with the crabmelt on sun-dried tomato foccacia and it was excellent. It was served with fresh fruit and pasta salad in an apparent attempt to cater to the health conscious clientele that reside in Aspen.

    Favorite Dish: Its all about the sandwiches here.

    Ajax Tavern: Ajax Tavern

    by goingsolo Written May 8, 2004

    Another place I didn't get to visit because it was closed for the off season, but I heard good things and decided to pass along the info. Ajax is a good place to go and hang out with the ski crowd at the end of the day. And the food is supposed to be pretty good as well.

    Zele's Cafe: A Great Place For Coffee, Salad or a Sandwich!

    by tetonski1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This place is where I spent the most time off the hill. Whether stopping in for breakfast coffee and pastry, or for lunch at their outdoor tables facing the mountain; you must visit Zele's.

    Zele's has two locations in Aspen. One is called Zele's Cafe which serves meals and has outside tables . The other location called Zele's New Music Cafe, is smaller and doesn't serve any meals. It's more of a music store with coffee on the side. There is a live music, as well as a D.J. who blends smooth New Age tunes through the speakers.

    A great side benefit of both Zele locations is that they offer free wireless for your computer.

    Favorite Dish: Their organic coffees are wonderful. They are grown without synthetic herbicides, insecticides, or fertilizers.

    They also have lots of yummy sandwiches, soups and salads.

  • Some great restaurants to...

    by Large_Bob Written Aug 26, 2002

    Some great restaurants to visit! I have to split my vote for my favorite between Matsuhisa and Pinons.
    Little Nell and Ajax Tavern are also great. Prepare to spend.
