The interesting part of my annual sojourns to Aspen has been tracking down the new restaurants and bars that pop up over the years. This year, I discovered BB’s Kitchen, which had only been open for a couple weeks when I got there.
I had a few great meals there and just missed the opportunity to photograph their meat operation for my butchery project. I spoke to the chef, Mark Buley about the restaurant and their plans to bring whole animal cooking to Aspen. If I’d written this post two months ago, I’d probably have a lot more details, but it’s all faded a bit, so I’ll let the food talk for itself after the jump.

For my first meal there, I had the pork chop entree. Cooked medium, it was as juicy and wonderful as it looks.

For breakfast another day, I had their take on a benedict – topped with pulled pork.

On my last day, before heading to the airport, I grabbed a meatloaf sandwich for lunch. It was very good, but paled in comparison to this amazingly delicious bit of warmed, freshly cured bacon that chef offered me a taste of.

With my Winter X Games trips coming to an end, I don’t know that I’ll have a reason to make it back to Aspen again. If I do, BB’s will be on my shortlist of places to return to again and again.
