The Artisan is a great local hangout for Snowmass residents and guests. The wine list is great - even better at the end of the season half price bottle of wine nights! The food is consistently good with many local farm and ranch products on the menu. The menu is a bit higher class than some of the restaurants in Snowmass. It is a great place for dinner for a date or birthday. If you are just going for a cocktail after skiing, my favorites besides their red wine list are their expresso martinis or their homemade ginger flavored vodka!
