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!

“Fun food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant really focuses on small plates that are easy to share. We ordered a few to start and then kept adding as the meal went on (there were 6 of us). The beef on skewers was by far the best. Tho I'm Gluten Free so didn't taste all of them. Our waiter was terrific and took pictures for us at the end. I think we closed down the place. I didn't really look closely at the bill and still wonder if they added a service charge in and then I put a tip on that!

“Unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

This restaurant is small plates and as someone who is lactose intolerant and doesn't eat meat, I thought I was going to have a problem finding something to eat. Not the case at all. They were very accommodating to leave certain ingredients out as well as guiding me to those dishes that would fit my dietary constraints. The food was delicious, staff friendly. An overall very pleasant experience!

“Not really tapas ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The food was ok, service and atmosphere were poor.

The food .... It's too big to be tapas and too small to not share.

Decide what you are please !
