General Manager Kristina Goode on being approachable, late nights, and why size does matter in Aspen. “It’s the perfect time to open David Burke Kitchen in Aspen.
Kitchen pays homage to the craft of cooking and sharing hearty, rustic American food. Its artisan menu items are inspired by morning visits to the green market and what is freshest in the region, prepared with creativity and refined technique. The result is a dining experience that is truly of the moment, authentic, and regional. We celebrate the integrity of ingredients at their peak, prepared with a deft hand and served alongside the finest wines and spirits.
There are not a lot of chef- driven restaurants in this town, so between focusing on the seasonality of the food, the presentation, and the service, and Chef O’Neill’s background, we have the ingredients that really set us apart and make
us attractive to a local scene. This will also be the largest restaurant in town, as we can accommodate 350 guests. The dining room seats 133 and will double in size in the summer, when the patio is open. The patio is perfect for aprés-ski drinks and snacks during the winter and fall. The flooring is heated and so along with heat lamps, it’s the perfect place to relax or party after a long day on the slopes. Plus the views are pretty incredible. Our subterranean lounge can seat 77 and will offer food options until midnight daily, which is also something that isn’t very common in Aspen.”
