Jimmy’s is an Aspen institution at this point—one of those places where the ambience and the company are really more important than the food itself. That said, the place is hardly short on great meals: Locals love the crabcakes, the Mad Dog ranch salad, and the shareable mac ‘n cheese. Plus, the margaritas are great (Jimmy also has a tequila spot in town). As for the ambience, you’ll find everyone from art collectors to ancient ski instructors bellied up to the bar, plus signatures on the walls from other Jimmy’s who have come for dinner over the years. Also good to know: The vibe here is exceptionally friendly to the kiddos.
