THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Restaurant at the Little Nell Restaurant Review

: This restaurant has simple but elegant style and service. The décor is comfortable and unostentatious, with well-upholstered, comfortable chairs at the tables. The staff is fine-tuned to anticipate guests' whims, yet they remain relaxed and retain their individual personalities---a trait you'll find throughout this small, superb hotel. Chef Bryan Moscatello creates his trademark Alpine American cuisine. During high-profile weeks in season, the power lunch scene resembles that at the Four Seasons Grill Room in New York; local movers and shakers are regulars the rest of the year. Dinner is all candlelight and civility, and it draws a chic crowd of jet-set hotel guests and Aspen social types. We often opt for the grilled elk strip loin accompanied by toasted couscous, grilled peaches, roasted onions and Colorado cherry sauce; or the roast Colorado rack of lamp with spaghetti squash-stuffed zucchini tart, crispy tomato-basil salad and charred onion jus. The braised veal tortellini with crab ravioli in a Madeira-parsnip froth is pretty good too. Sommelier and maître d'hôte Bobby Stuckey oversees the 1,000+ bottle wine list.
