ASPEN’S MOST CELEBRATED LUNCH AND DINING ESTABLISHMENT
36 HOURS IN ASPEN – “FANTASTIC DINING OPTION”
“La Creperie du Village is a cozy bistro that opened in 2011. Here you will find a French alpine bistro known for its fondue, crepes and raclette, a dish of melted cheese, boiled potatoes, cornichons and cured meat. The dish is served with a tabletop grill and is the main draw, along with the fondue, which comes in a cheese and beef variation.”
THE HOME OF AWESOME
Aspen is a foodie’s paradise. La Crêperie du Village serves food to beam you straight over to the Alps, including raclette, the Swiss wet dream of cheese, air-cured meat, onions,cornichons and sliced potatoes.
“This cozy bistro offers French cuisine served in a chalet-inspired setting, and the beef fondue for two is perfect for sharing with a date. A tender cut of top sirloin steak is thinly sliced, then served with three dipping sauces: green peppercorn glaze, saffron aioli and romesco.”
“On the bustling corner of East Hopkins Avenue and Mill Street, brings one range of mountains to another. The Alps-inspired sublevel restaurant has fast become a favorite haunt for authentic food and wine from the European high country [including] a slew of elegant dishes that evoke the specialties of the finest bistros in Paris and Lyon.”
Aspen in the Summer
“At this French-style bistro […] you can’t go wrong.”
“Cozy and romantic, it is one of my favorite places in town. Try the foie gras marinated in sauternes to start and share a truffle-cheese fondue. The Pure Love Crepe, with butter, lemon and sugar, is simple and classic, the perfect way to end a meal.”
“Culinary SOS: Creperie du Village’s Soupe aux Haricot Blanc. The hearty ham and bean soup at the Aspen, Co, restaurant doesn’t disappoint in the slightest.”
“Walking into Creperie feels a bit like tucking into a cozy West Village cafe; it’s primarily candle-lit, with rustic barn wood tables and white, blue-striped napkins. The menu here is all about fondues, both of the meat and cheese variety. If you can carve out some space in your stomach after the appetizers, order a bottle of Grüner and a dramatically presented raclette for the full experience.

The rich, beefy broth topped by mantle of crusty, molten Gruyère is positively seductive: don’t forget to order a bottle of red.”

“Crêperie du Village is a French bistro and Aspen’s only fondue restaurant, a charmingchalet-like atmosphere that is the ideal setting for a casual or business lunch, après-ski, romantic candle-lit dinners, or special celebrations.”
Love is in the air at this snug little restaurant, which has won awards for itsdistinctly romantic atmosphere. Sure, it’s French, and effortlessly bohemian by extension, but the amour in question also comes by way of its charming mountain-resort setting. Take your significant other after a day on the slopes and share a fondue (go deluxe, with vacherin and beaufort). Cheesy in the literal sense only.
