It's been called Aspen's "finest spot to wine, dine and unwind." The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine -for breakfast, lunch, apres and dinner, 7 days a week. Our team of culinary and wine professionals is one very good reason we have enjoyed the rare 5-Star, 5-Diamond ranking for so long. Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you'll be greeted with warmth, not formality. You'll find the ambience - ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Cameron Martin, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, Jose Lerma - as fine as the dining.

I reviewed our stay at the Little Nell from last weekend. It was amazing. Somehow when my review was published it was a low rating. It should have been excellent!

We had dinner outside and the courtyard is very nice. The flowers are bueatiful. The service was excellent and the wine list and sommelier was very good. I would use his talents. The food was excellent . We had the grilled octopus and tuna tartar as appetizers and both were excellent.the octopus was very tender.mwe both had different fish dishes... More

The bar apre ski rocks. Great ever changing crowd. Anchored by the daily'Board Meeting' in the small bar. Aspen veterans swap ski lore all night long. In the Pit there is live music and crowds of the rich, the young and not so young beautiful people. It's a tradition..it's a gas.every day!

With the best wine list in the state, it's no surprise that our wine accounted for two-thirds the cost of dinner. All in all, it was memorable. Sea bass, chocolate pairing, sorbets. All was beautiful. In fact, we returned to the bar the next night for the calvados flight!

This is, by far, my dad's favorite place. We never miss a chance to enjoy an evening here when I'm visiting. The kids didn't enjoy it as much as the rest of us, so we may opt out on bringing them next time. Hope to be here again very soon! Tim A.

I eat lunch in the private room here every year, and it never disappoints. Great food and service and a very extensive wine list.

As anyone with experience traveling to Aspen/Snowmass in ski season can tell you, it is dicey. The airport has a challenging landing and requires greater-than-usual visual clearance. Our February 2015 travel to Aspen was brutal, starting with our United flight from Houston being diverted to Denver. We were assured that a bus awaited for the trek over Vail pass. It... More

Dear Gator_Bill_R, I apologize for the delays experienced on your journey here, but I’m glad you arrived in Aspen safely. Thank you for choosing to dine with us. I’m happy our culinary offerings exceeded expectations and helped you to forget (if only slightly) the arrival delays. Last, but not least, thank you for your rave review. I hope you will... More
