Inspirato Presents: The Meal You'll Remember
"Montagna at The Little Nell Hotel in Aspen is not only romantic but was recognized as part of the coveted Five Star and Five Diamond list of fine dining restaurants. The plush surroundings and killer wine cellar make any night a special occasion. After your spectacular dinner, snuggle up in the lounge with an after dinner drink and their doughnuts with dipping sauces." -Kristin Craig, Destination Concierge
Montagna's Executive Chef Robert McCormick concentrates his menu on European-influenced cuisine with a touch of local Colorado ingredients. Because the restaurant is located at The Little Nell Hotel & Residences, the Montagna has access to its 20,000-bottle wine cellar. The restaurant's Master Sommelier Jonathan Pullis can pair your meal with a Napa Chardonnay or a fine Bordeaux red… or virtually any wine your palate desires.
