Description: Delicious fare lures locals and visitors up the stairs to this lively, sophisticated-but-casual restaurant and lounge. Chef Matt Zubrod is back in Aspen and heading the kitchen at bb's, where he creates his signature classic cuisine with a twist for lunch and dinner. Bb's dining room offers a warm, contemporary atmosphere. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the second-floor location afford beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and downtown Aspen. Lunch is back at bb's by popular demand! Patrons keep coming back for creative soups and salads, hearty sandwiches and entrees. Weekends bring the added bonus of favorite brunch items. Popular lunch items include the DLT Sandwich (duck bacon, duck confit, lettuce & tomato), Chef's Daily Inspiration Chili, MZ Burger with Onion Jam, Bacon & Gruyere, Pulled Chicken-Cherry Salad, and Kale & Quinoa Caesar. At dinner, small plates and large plates allow diners to choose not only what to eat, but how to dine - to share a variety of small plates or choose a traditional entree. Guests can also take advantage of casual dining in the lounge. Dinner guests enjoy favorites like Lobster Chowder, Tuna Tacos, Kale & Brussels Salad, Ahi Carpaccio, Broken Arrow Ranch Antelope, Brandt Beef Ribeye and Dover Sole Meuniere. Top it off with mouthwatering S'mores or the Colorado Artisan Cheese Plate for dessert. Bb's lounge offers a relaxing vibe, perfect for enjoying a hand-crafted cocktail or glass of wine by the fire. The lounge is an intimate gathering place, with windows overlooking the lights of downtown. Bb's... The place to "b" day and night!

“Best meal in Aspen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Yes, it's pricey, yes it's got attitude...duh, it's Aspen! Unusual, high-quality food served by people who care what they are doing with management present to make sure all goes well. You will spend more (something I'm not always willing to do), but it is worth it.

“Good eclectic menu. Sit outside. So nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Sitting outside under the awnings. Good menu. Good service. Lots of fun people watching. A touch on the "high tone and fancy" feel to this place but...it's Aspen. What do you expect? I love this place. So mellow.

“New Little Gem in Aspen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

BB's is a great new restaurant in Aspen. Located just off the mall on the second floor of an art gallery complex. A little jewel serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great outdoor seating, but more importantly, great food. A recent dinner great heirloom tomatos with buratta, easily as good as any I have ever eaten.Good variety of contemporary American food, something for everyone. Great bar

“Gluten free bread!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

BB's has gluten-free bread, which they make in-house, so I had the roasted vegetable panini. It was great! The outside seating area smelled bad....not sure if it was that the outdoor carpeting had gotten wet or not. Anyway, when we go back, I'll sit inside. Overall though, it was a great lunch.

“A Wonderful Restaurant in Aspen Colorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Had a fabulous Lobster dinner at BB's last night. Perfect location , correctly priced wine & cocktails, and loved the outdoor seating arrangement. The service , food and ambiance are exactly what one would want when dining in Aspen ... Try a side order of the peppers.
