  1. someone has to know some good info about the aspen restaurants. i am in need of a few tips for the food and wine classic. pls pls!!

    1. Many of the chefs and other VIPs attend private catered parties. Other than that, downtown Aspen restaurants -- the ones closest to the park, the St. Regis, etc. -- are the easiest to get to from Food & Wine.

      1. all of the restaurants will be packed! i really reccommend cache cache, sizigy, and matsuhisa (for sushi). Elevation is another fun spot for dinner.
