Search for Aspen Restaurants

We will be in Aspen for two nights soon staying near Downtown at the Limelight. Having spent our 25th anniversary there and having skied there a number of times, we are now wishing to have a fun and tasty 39th anniversary celebration there just before July 4th. Would someone recommend several nice restaurants ($100-150 range with wine), perhaps for outside evening dining??

Also, we saw a John Denver TV special which included a park-like area with his lyrics engraved on the rocks. Is that near Aspen for visitation?

Thanks for any help!

The Santuary can be found near Rio Grande Park in Aspen, Colorado. It is located near the Roaring Fork river. The address of the Sanctuary is 130 S. Galena Street.

re: eats, check out aspenchamber.org/what-to-do/… for lots to pick from. And have lunch at the newly re-opened Red Onion.

Thanks for the info, especially about the Sanctuary.

I noticed on the restaurant site that a number from "the old days" are still in operation! We'll hit the Onion, for sure!

We dined at the Wild Fig last month. It was excellent: http://www.thewildfig.com/press.php?start=6

The Red Onion has just reopened after a long long time closed down so it is really a new old place. They are still in grand opening mode with a temporary menu, special prices as they work out the bugs in the kitchen and service. We ate there last week and are encouraged by their first week effort -- definitely check it out.

We visited the Red Onion many times over the years, so it is nice to hear it is back on the radar. Thanks for the tip!

Now that looks splendid and will probably, hopefully, provide our anniversary meal! Many thanks!
