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!

“Don't eat in the bar!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We tried to get a table in the restaurant but were offered a table in the front lounge/bar. Service was dreadful, we felt like we were an inconvenience and staff were more intent on chatting to those sitting at the bar than dealing with customers at tables. Very poor!

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

One of the best for breakfast in Aspen. The french toast and omelets are excellent. I enjoy the atmosphere of this restaurant, especially in the summer on the outside patio.

“Wonderful Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Group of seven (locals and visitors) had a nice evening of good food and conversation. Menu had enough variety to please everyone. Portions were large enough to split, and some did. The restaurant decour was modern and the tables and booths were nicely spaced; a very comfortable atmospher. Service was very good and the group all agreed it was a place we would return to again.

“Dinner in Aspen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Our family of four had dinner here over winter break. Pleasantly surprised. Food was good, room was pretty, and we sat near the very large window and patio - which allowed nice view of the street stores and galleries. Service was good and overall a good experience. Would return.
