Aspen Snowmass introduces a new Italian restaurant located at 10,620 ft. at the top of Sam’s Knob on Snowmass. The new restaurant features a modern Italian concept that offers diners sweeping views of the Elk Mountains and a sophisticated but lively food experience. The $2.5 million remodel features an open bar area, live-action kitchen, fireplace with relaxed seating and a stylish deck. An added slipper room greets diners with the option to remove ski boots and slip into a pair of comfy slippers. The sit-down lunch service will emphasize a shared dining experience that begins with antipasti platters such as prosciutto di parma and burrata with Sicilian caponata followed by pastas and entrees such as rigatoni bolognese and the can’t miss rotating traditional grandma-style pizza. Pasta will be made in-house daily as is the restaurant’s artisanal bread, while a flywheel prosciutto slicer will perfectly cut the restaurant’s cured meats. Sam’s will feature a curated wine list and signature cocktails such as the Negroni Spritz. Quick-serve and grab-and-go breakfast options are available daily beginning at 9:00 a.m. from the Italian style coffee bar. The new restaurant debuts in November 2019.
