Fueling Up in Aspen

by Kasey Caminiti | January 31, 2019 2:30 pm

Nestled at the base of Aspen Mountain, St. Regis Aspen[1] recently underwent some renovations, including the debut of a sleek new restaurant for this ski season: Velvet Buck (named after the velvet fur that grows on the antlers of a male deer). Exposed brick and mounted antlers fuel a traditional ski-town vibe in the dining room, while the menu offers a “modern mountain cuisine” deemed perfect for the après-ski set who’ve worked up an appetite after a day of carving down the slopes. The caramelized pork belly and braised short ribs, washed down with a signature Vesper Martini, is the perfect ending to that perfect day of powder.
