About

Located at the base of Aspen Mountain, offering French-American Tavern Cuisine, featuring farm to table cooking with local ingredients. This “Aspen casual” restaurant is the type of place where you can come as you are and expect fun food with fresh ingredients, such as Colorado Lamb Bolognese, Classic French Onion Soup and signature selections such as the Ajax Double Cheeseburger and Truffle Fries. The Little Nell is proud to name Matt O’Neill as the new executive chef at Ajax Tavern, the casual dining spot known for its lively patio and distinctive bistro fare. Prior to moving to Aspen, Matt gained notoriety from the Boston Globe and the New York Times for his work as executive chef at PB Boulangerie-Bistro in Wellfleet, MA. Other highlights of Matt’s career include two years at the three Michelin starred Restaurant Daniel in New York and the grand opening of Bar Boulud in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

The Tavern has been our go to spot for a reasonably priced casual night out when in town. The burger and truffle fries rank as the best in Aspen.

Really drafty and cold if you are seated near the windows. We had our jackets on for the entire time.

A nice dinner out, not outstanding, but still fun! Expensive wine by the glass, but great location.

Apres Ski bar that is quite lively, would recommend you wait till 7 for dinner so that crowd leaves and it quiets down some. Food was excellent. Authentic European food, veal schnitzel is wonderful. Onion Soup was fantastic. Plat du Jours available as well. Servers are top notch, friendly and fun group. Great place, I can highly recommend it.

Booked a table for 6 . Arrived 5 minutes early and table not ready . Put on a round table meant for 4 . Tables that would have been able to be put together to accommodate 6 properly were taken as the staff had not blocked the tables to make it ready for us . Very poor show and no real help provided .As we had to provide a credit card and would have been charged for not appearing not impressed at all . Food etc OK but we should have just walked out as the cramped conditions made enjoying the meal difficult . Surprised as we expected a much slicker operation as Ajax part of Little Nell . Compares poorly with all the other places at which we dined in Aspen.

WELL KNOWN FOR THE APRES SKI TERRACE, THIS RESTAURANT IS ALSO WONDERFUL FOR THE DINNER.
IT'S A KIND OF BRASSERIE STYLE RESTAURANT WITH A DIVERSIFIED SIMPLE MENU: TRUFFLE FRIES, BURGERS, TERRIFIC SALADS, STEAK, MUSSELS...
THE SERVICE IS AWESOME AND THE DECO IS NICE: A GOOD SPOT AFTER A FULL DAY OF SKI!

Ajax was quant and the service was exceptional. The food was mostly very good; however, the COD was overcooked, under seasoned and tasted previously-frozen. The vanilla ice cream dessert was a bit of a disappointment as well as it was three very small (think melon-ball) scoops. The lemon tart was very good however.
