IN the spotlight
Even in a town known for cool, Bosq (bosqaspen.com; 312 South Mill St.; 970-710-7299) stands out with its sleek interior featuring whitewashed gray walls made from regional beetle-kill pine and its world-traveling chef with the very Aspen name of C. Barclay Dodge. He reigns over a small (40-seat) dining room and a menu heavily reflective of his favorite overseas haunts — “I don’t cook food from somewhere I haven’t been,” he says — and his perfectionism.
Where to Eat:
Chef C. Barclay Dodge’s Bosq offers a globally inspired menu with a focus on local ingredients—the Peking duck is a must-order.
More recently, we’ve also heard good things about Bosq, helmed by Chef Barclay Dodge, who has brought his love of travel back to Aspen. A decidedly globally influenced menu features everything from sweet and sour crispy eggplant and gremolata string fries to creamless cream corn and peking duck.
