“Good, overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

This restaurant is mostly about the atmosphere. It is chic/trendy. The best aspect - service was excellent. The food was good. My wife had a greens salad which she enjoyed, I had the onion soup. It was very good, but was a nouveau interpretation of French Onion Soup. It was lightly sauteed sweet onion on toasted bread with very little broth. For our entrees we both selected an appetizer recommended by one of the hotel staff - New Orleans style shrimp and grits. We have had this dish at Old Ebbitt's Grille in Washington DC and LOVED it, Eight K's version was also very good.

The bad - most entrees were in the $30 - $55 price range but by their description did not seem to justify the price. Steaks were over $50. Having had excellent steaks at many other steak houses in large cities (Philadelphia, Palm Springs, LA, Atlanta, Kansas City, etc.) for less money, I could not justify a + $50 steak in Snowmass! Yes this is the Aspen area, but still....
