For the second half of our trip, Matt and I ventured over to Aspen. The drive over was beautiful and Matt booked us in an awesome hotel, The Limelight. After checking in and showering off our failure from the 14er, we took to the town.
Aspen has a very different feel than Telluride. Gone were the small coffee shops and in were the high-end designer stores and trendy restaurants. While in Telluride, we fit in with our jeans and fleeces, in Aspen, we stood out. And not for the right reason.
This relatively new restaurants combines different meats and sauces into unique and delicious meatballs. We went with the classic beef with marinara sauce and the chicken with buffalo sauce. While both were delicious, I have a special place in my tummy for buffalo.
I wasn’t planning on ordering desert until I saw the menu.
Design your own cookie? Yes, please! Matt and I went with the original cookie dough with health bar and salted caramel topping.
Oh yeah, and with a scoop of homemade ice cream on top. It was heavenly. And gone in about 2 seconds.
How didn’t I think of this idea? Maybe I can create the NYC version.
