Hungry? bb’s has your culinary cravings covered. Come in for an intimate dinner in a stylish, inviting setting or a casual lunch with dazzling town and mountain views. Enjoy craft cocktails and a satisfying bite in our oh-so-social lounge. Savor our irresistible weekend brunch with friends.<br /><br />Apart from our upscale, heart-of-downtown location, bb’s uniquely-welcoming vibe and convivial atmosphere keeps locals and visitors alike returning time and time again. That said, the food is nothing short of fabulous.<br /><br />With Chef Jeff Casagrande at the helm in the kitchen, each dish is prepared with the finest ingredients possible, sourced from local artisans, farmers and purveyors. Flavors are celebrated, with culinary influences taken from a variety of cultures and cuisines. Thoughtful presentation is as pleasing to the eye as to the palate.<br />

"We chose bb's specifically because there was antelope on the menu. Otherwise, the menu is pretty standard stuff and not unlike a lot of other restaurants in Aspen. Unfortunately, there was no antelope available the night we dined. The food we did order was decent but not particularly special.
As with a lot of restaurants in Aspen, the price was much higher than it needed to be but seemed overall in line with other restaurants in the area."

It’s been called Aspen’s “finest spot to wine, dine and unwind.” The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine —for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner, 7 days a week. Our team of culinary and wine professionals is one very good reason our hotel has enjoyed the rare 5-Star, 5-Diamond ranking for so long. In 2015, element 47 received its first 5-Star Restaurant Award. Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you’ll be greeted with warmth, not formality. There is no dress code -- "Aspen casual" is ideal attire. We are pleased to accommodate diners with any food allergies, intolerances and dietary restrictions. You’ll find the ambience – ceiling-height glass cases with some of our rarest wines, art by Michelle Grabner, Cameron Martin, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, José Lerma – as fine as the dining.

"In Aspen, we were looking for a place with game options on the menu. We very much enjoyed the deliciously prepared saddle of venison. The appetizers were also quite good. The dessert was middling.
As with just about everything in Aspen, the price is higher than it needs to be but not particularly moreso than other restaurants in the area."

"We very much enjoyed the charcuterie and cheeses we ordered although the number of meats and cheeses ordered has to be a certain number rather than just what you want which was a bit off-putting. Also, despite ordering according to the menu's regimen, we did not receive one of our cheeses. Regardless, the food was quite good.
The service was not great but not terrible. The space is somewhat small and feels cramped but is decently appointed."
