A word from bb's

The focus is on interesting, fun, and sophisticated evening dining. The small plates include a diversity of ingredients, influences, and intriguing flavors. Executive Chef Katie Lorenzen-Smith serves up dishes such as Black Truffle Risotto Cake with shaved Brussels Sprouts, Truffled Lamb Meatballs, Citrus Pork Belly, Perogies 3 Ways, and Green Papaya Salad.

Diner Reviews
  • "b.b.'s menu is primarily small plates and samplings. It's best for sharing dishes with friends. There's a good variety. We shared the roasted sardines, pierogies 3 ways, kale and sprouts salad (delicious), and shrimp toast. A great way to get a number of different tastes and cuisines at one time."

  • "The new tasting menu is refreshingly tasty, some new additions that really fill the bill. The staff is spot on wine selecting, and the waiter was helpful with how much to order. Everything was fresh and flavorful, and we did linger as long as we wanted at the table. Good place to have conversation and enjoy your food at reasonable pace."

  • "Everything is excellent from the many appetizers to desserts. This is one of the best restaurants I. Aspen. The atmosphere is cozy and very chic."

  • "We had heard that the menu had changed to tapas at BBs. We had been in the past yrs with old menu and liked it and not being a big fan of tappas we weren't sure. We had a large group of people who like to try new new food but also have favorites. Ordering was abit of a circus but our waitstaff was patient ,easy going and attentive. The food was great as usual.Nice size portions although some dishes were such favorites of the whole table we had to order seconds.When we did they came out very quickly. I'm not sure we would have enjoyed this as much if we were just a couple.Half the fun was ordering so many dishes. We will be back next year on our annual trek to Aspen"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Everything is small plates and the 6 of us shared about 15 wonderful dishes. All excellent and a great variety. We especially loved the lamb meatballs, the roasted oysters, the flatbread with chorizo , the salmon cones, and the boudin. Oh and desserts were fabulous. Service was excellent. You can't go wrong. It can get pricey, like many fine Aspen restaurants, but bb's belongs with the top restaurants on town."

  • "Went 3x last year and LOVED it. Menu changed this season and it's horrible! 7 adults and we all ordered the same thing because it was only decent item on menu. Food was still excellent but menu needs to go back to previous. Service very nice and accommodating. Did I mention how bad the new menu is!!!"

  • "Creative tapas menu. Decent wine list. Prices high by Aspen standards--not a hot spot for dinner. Almost empty on Friday night is never a good sign. But the food was fun, well prepared, creative although portions were small even by the "small plate" standards. Why the techno music was blaring was somewhat disconcerting but the service was great. We had a bottle of wine on special three plates and a desert and somehow bill was $200. We have been there for lunch in the summer and sat outside and it was great. Hope they make some price and portions adjustments and build a clientele."

  • "Attentive service with a unique menu. We met Executive Chef Katie (who was on Food Network's Iron Chef) and she sent out surprises between courses. We tried the perogies 3 ways, roasted oysters and the lamb meatballs - all were amazing! The spare ribs were too spicy for my taste, but my husband loved them. Wait staff was very good. Nice experience. We have been at Jose Andres tapas restaurant in Las Vegas a few times - and this place has better service and food!"

  • "The menu was a bit difficult to figure out. Most of the dishes are small plates meant for sharing. There is a limited amount of entrees. Entrees consist of just one item (e.g. salmon). No sides come with the entree so all sides are an extra cost. Unless you order a number of dishes, you'll probably leave a bit hungry."

  • "This is a great spot in Aspen that I recently discovered. It has more of a tapas style menu sampling several different cuisines across the country and world. Try the lamb meatballs!"

  • "Was always my favorite on Aspen. Looking forward to scallops, risotto etc. they have changed the menu. Only 5 normal entrees & lots of small plates trying to be too exotic"

  • "The new small plate menu is great for sharing and generating more conversation at the dinner table!"

  • "Sat through an 8 course meal that was delicious with every plate. Staff was extremely attentive and offered to hold our food so we could watch the fireworks from their back deck. The restaurant was on the smaller side, but accommodated at least one large group, a smaller group or two, and multiple couples that night."

  • "I think I understand what the owners/chef are trying to achieve. Problem is that the dishes are, in our opinion, poorly conceived and poorly executed. For example, they managed to ruin what might have been perfectly reasonable beef tartar with an entirely inappropriate honey mustard sauce. Huh? Another example: They managed to smoother braised short rib meat with some kind of heavy cream sauce which swamped the flavor of the beef, and then to make matters worse, overcooked the whole affair and wound up with the first dried out short ribs I've ever had."

  • "The quality of the good is not great considering the price ... Don't take the flatbread: it's terrible!"
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "and the food was hit and miss. The green Papaya salad had no green Papaya that we could detect. The staff suggested that it was green Papaya "inspired". The beet salad and kale salad were nice, but the Calamari was soggy. The service was just friendly but not overly efficient."

  • "6-course Christmas Dinner was outstanding! Deconstructed beef wellington the BEST I have ever had! Creative Executive Chef is clearly a rising star!"
