After the Ride: Local Favorites

Lynn Britt Cabin Best food on the mountain
Hiking Trail, Aspen CO — (970) 923-8715
Venga Venga Cantina & Tequila Bar The $6 draft beer doesn't even come in a glass. That's weak.

The Butcher's Block Awesome traditional deli and butcher shop. Great sandwiches made fresh. No room to eat in. A few tables outdoors.
Pyramid Bistro The best vegan meal we've had in CO. So perfectly done, from apps to dessert. Romantic and quiet, tucked above a bookstore. Loved it all.
