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!

“The hostess needs a raise!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

So... It was Labor Day weekend. Sunday brunch was slammed. The other customers were so rude- I have no idea how the sweet hostess kept it together. Couldn't believe what I witnessed with the attitudes and pushiness. Bless that girl!
We waited for a very long time, our order got screwed up and the food was bland. Sounded and looked great but just fell flat. It's pricey too- so overall our experience was miserable but because of the hostesses friendly disposition we would give it another try when it's not so busy.

“Expected more...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

First time in aspen and I was told that BB's was the place to have brunch. We got there and they told us that we could be immediately seated, and then they said 15-30 mins, and then said they'd seat us but we couldn't order food for a while cause the kitchen was backed up. Apparently they had a huge private party come in that was overwhelming them, which is fine and understandable. We got seated and order our coffees until we were told that we could order food. The coffees were good but they came out in soup bowls... The cardboard soup bowls. I was sure at first if that was the norm, but looking around proved thAt it wasn't... If I'm paying $6 for a cup of coffee at a brunch I expect it in some type of coffee cup. That was the only major downfall to the meal.. I was expecting more from what I was told. The food was good. I had the Irving omelet and I'd highly recommend it. The waiter was good as well and once we ordered the food came out within 20 min of ordering.

“Avoid.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

BB's has always been one of my favorite spots. New dining room with great views and great and reasonable food. Last two meals there and this one is permanently off the list. Took friends for a 'thank you' dinner last night and was embarrassed I had recommended the restaurant. Food was inedible. New menu specials, " warm oysters" 'soup dumplings" and "tandoori lamb' were awful. Prices for mains have increased from mid $20's to mid $30's.
$300 dinner for 4 (didn't even attempt dessert). We left hungry and shaking our heads.
