A word from Chefs Club Aspen - St. Regis Aspen
The St. Regis Aspen Resort has partnered with FOOD & WINE Magazine to debut Chefs Club, an innovative new restaurant concept that will bring the FOOD & WINE pages to life through their signature Best New Chefs Awards, which honors the country’s most promising up-and-coming chefs. Chefs Club will select a group of FOOD & WINE's Best New Chefs to curate a unique menu of seasonally-inspired, American Regional cuisine for The St. Regis Aspen Resort. George Mendes (2011) of Aldea, New York, NY, James Lewis (2011) of Bettola, Birmingham, Alabama, Alex Seidel (2010) of Fruition, Denver, Colorado and Sue Zemanick (2008) of Gautreau's, New Orleans, Louisiana, were chosen to inaugurate the menu for the summer of 2012. Our current lineup consists of Bryant Ng from the Spice Table in Los Angeles, Viet Pham from Forage in Salt Lake City, Missy Robbins from New York City, and Jason Franey from Canlis in Seattle.

    Very impressed with the concept and execution of the Chefs Club. The ambiance was great- much better than I anticipated from looking at the website. The food and service were great as well. The rabbit terrine and foie gras dish was delectable. The English Pea Agnolotti was incredible and by far the best dish. Only dish that was unsuccessful was the duck entree. It had an orange component that was too overwhelming. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We arrived late and sat at the kitchen counter. It was great watching the chefs prepare our meal. Everything we tried was amazing. Whole Branzino pan fried crispy then finished in the oven with a lemon and fennel brodo - heavenly! I ate every last bite.

    My wife and I had some excellent meals in our 5 day Aspen get away. The Chef's Club meal was the best and most serious (in a good way, presented in a sleek and sophisticated room at the St. Regis. The waiter gave us a spot on wine recommendation (unusual Rhone style red from France) and gave us a roasted corn side dish (gratis) that perfectly complemented our venison and lamb entres.. The appetizers and desserts were as we'll constructed and delicious as the main courses. Everything was prepared excellently with flavor, smells and presentations that delighted the senses. It was the perfect spot for our last meal before heading home.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/15/2012
    The best thing I can say is that the hostess that seated us was wonderful, after that it all went down hill. It took them 25 minutes to get a cocktail to the table and another 15 minutes to get the second cocktail to the table. The server told us the second one was on the house! The manager came over and said that because I requested stuffed olives for my drink it took longer! The greens salad had so much dressing on it that I almost couldn't eat it. I am not the person who orders my salad dressing on the side. I requested from our server if the Bronzino fish could be served without the head and tail, although I love fish I have a very hard time looking at a whole fish. Needless to say our dining experience was awful!

    All in all it was a lovely dining experience. We tried almost all the starters and appetizers the sturgeon, asparagus with ricotta and the duck being my personal favorites. The agnolotti was divine but I'm a big fan of Alex Seidel food from Fruition in Denver. The wine list was a little disappointing not the range and value I was expecting there are a lot of good wines out there that can be on a list from $80-120 but I was struggling to find many I liked and knew. The sommelier was lovely though and most helpful. The deserts were nice but the cheeseboard was the star for me. Nice to have a new hot spot in town.

    This was recommended to us by some local friends. The setting is beautiful however we were surprised by the sub-par service. We waited a long time until someone took our order, had to ask a couple of times to have some butter...not what we expected at a high end restaurant. Also, a friend raved about the lamb which 2 of us thought was just ok. Our dessert was fancy but not great. My husband's prime rib was very good he said. The corn side dish was recommended by our waitress and was outstanding, probably the best thing we had on the table. All in all, nice setting but not really worth the price in my opinion.

    Chefs club is a great concept and well executed. They have a row of bar stools that look right into the kitchen that made for added entertainment while we ate. I highly recommend it! With new chefs coming on each year, we willowy certainly be back next year when we are back in Aspen!

    Staff-excellent, room-loud. We sat at the Chef's Table, facing kitchen. Best part of meal was watching kitchen & how many Branzini were ordered! Menu is full of almost too-interesting of concoctions from several chefs. 1st ordered the duck confit. Very good, then "Seared Rainbow Trout-pine nut brown butter, potato-leek puree, watercress." I am not sure if the duck was too rich (1st served an amuse-bouches of creamy pate sandwiched between two sweet merengue cookies) but I was only able to eat a few bites of fish. They also substituted? 3 pcs of flat leaf parsley for the watercress. Mushroom risotto-rich & salty but good. At the Chef's Table, we were also treated to two glasses of Cristalino rose sparkling wine, by the attentive sommelier.

    The Chef’s Club raises the bar in Aspen to a level on par with NY and LA restaurants. Service is outstanding and the food is even better. We tried the three course dinner tasting menu and started with the warm green asparagus, and followed with the grilled prime bistecca fiorentina, which was perfectly prepared, and finished off with the caramelized brioche and chocolate malt semi freddo for dessert. We paired the meal with a fine (and reasonably priced) bottle of red wine that was recommended by the very knowledgeable sommelier. To get the full experience, make sure you request a seat at the Chef’s tasting table, which gives you a view in to the kitchen and you can watch and talk with the chef’s as the food is prepared.

    Food was excellent. Noise level is worst than a chain restaurant like the Olive Garden. Not compatible ambience to fine dining as customers are talking loudly because of lack of sound or noise control mechanism, We are extremely disappointed as the enjoyment of the excellent food and wine were dampened significantly.
