Piñons has been in downtown Aspen for almost thirty years (and it’s a favorite among the town’s old guard), but you wouldn’t know it from the interior, which always feels fresh thanks to frequent renovations and well-tended upkeep. While nothing is ever excessively fancy in a town that favors cowboy boots over stilettos, Piñons definitely a more upscale choice: Expect white tablecloths, impeccable service, and the price tag to match. As for the menu, it’s all western classics, done in a comforting traditional style—we recommend sticking to Colorado meats and fish, food-wise, with dishes like the trout, lamb, or buffalo tenderloin.
