Kenichi, Aspen, CO

Kenichi Restaurant Review

: Named after co-owner Kenichi Kanada, Kenichi is a hip Aspen hangout where locals and tourists mingle at the lively bar or hide away in private tatami rooms. Fusion-inspired Japanese cuisine is its forte: imagine wild boar pot stickers, tuna sashimi with blue cheese in a truffled miso sauce or Wagyu filet with dashi au poivre. Even the sushi flaunts some twists --- think blackened yellowtail maki with pineapple and serrano chiles. Boasting an extensive saké list, Kenichi also features cocktails with an Asian flavor.
