Friends and I had brunch on the patio. Nice atmosphere, good service. They brought us a platter with bagels, cream cheese, salmon, etc. Very good salmon! We also had mimosas and pancakes with lemon and raspberries. All good.

Had dinner there last night and everything was great. Wine list was extensive and we had two separate bottles. Food was superb. I had the Buffalo tenderloin and it was better than most filets I've eaten. Buddy has the wild boar and said it was fantastic. Wait staff great and mananger stopped by twice to make sure everything was great.... More

You wouldn't think it would be difficult to find a restaurant that served 'game meats' in Colorado, but it can be. While looking for a place to have cocktails and dinner in Aspen, I caught sight of antelope on bb's menu...I was sold! bb's is a nicely lit, cozy space with tasty cocktails (I went with the bb's smash) and...

bb's is upstairs so some people may miss it. Seek it out!! The food was absolutely incredible with fish and wild game selections. Best wild boar pasta I've ever had. Wine list was truly excellent and reasonably priced. Tables outside under umbrellas and heat lamps were very comfortable, next to overflowing flower boxes. Hummingbirds visiting the flowers came so close... More

BB's is an Aspen restaurant frequented by locals because it is a good value in a town where restaurants are generally overpriced and the food is almost entirely locally sourced. The kale and Brussels spouts salad was a big hit, as was the mushroom soup. For an entree, I had the buffalo tenderloin, which was excellent.

The food is excellent and John, tending bar, seems to know everyone in the room. A great place to eat, drink, and meet new people.

And the food is very good too! BB's is pricey and kind of quiet or it would be more crowded. Only the outdoor seating was bet used. The food was great!! And I'm a tough critic. For apps we got the Foie Gras (big portion) and Wedge Salad. Entrees were the Lobster Pasta (sauce too tart and sour, only complaint... More

We live in the Aspen area, and when we can 't get into one of the hot-hot-hot places, and want a reasonably priced outdoor meal, we head here. The second-floor terrace is spacious, with big umbrellas to shield us from the sun and heaters to warm us on chilly nights---all with a view of Aspen mountain. The service is good... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal on the patio of bb's one sunny day in Aspen. We shared some delicious poblano peppers and then I had the steamed pork buns. Each was delicious and flavorful. The service was great and attentive.

Relaxed atmosphere with friendly service but the attraction is the open roof top terrace for drinks in the sun in the heart of the town. Would recommend Irish Mule

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!
