Ajax Tavern Restaurant Review:

A ritzy resort is home to one of Aspen’s liveliest watering holes. With a cozy, softly lit dining room and a spacious patio that overlooks Gondola Plaza --- aka the best people-watching site in town --- to the mountains beyond, Ajax Tavern has become the place to see and be seen over the past couple of decades. We actually like waiting for a table at the small bar over seasonal cocktails and a sizable list of wines by the glass. But we enjoy even more surveying the spirited scene while nibbling on brasserie-inspired seafood platters or steak frites, followed by a salted caramel root beer float just for fun. What we don’t enjoy so much are the tabs: an order of the famed truffle fries, for instance, is $17, but that view almost justifies the price tag.
