Chef C. Barclay Dodge has spent the last thirty years traveling to exotic places from North Africa, Spain, South East Asia, Central America, Australia and all over Sub-Sahara Africa. The flavors & cultures of his travels have always intrigued him and he finds himself heavily delving into the markets and restaurants (white tablecloth and street food) wherever he may be. Working in Michelin starred restaurants in Spain and New York are also where he draws immense inspiration.
Since opening Bosq in Spring of 2016, Chef Dodge has truly honed his style, pulling from his relationships with local biodynamic farms and from his love of foraging deep in the valley forest. Together with his team of extremely driven chefs, the cuisine of Bosq is just that…Bosq Cuisine. It is our belief that collaborating with these farmers and the wild products, we grasp flavor at its highest level, one that is symbiotic with our environment. Cooking with what lives and grows in our backyard is what drives Bosq. We strive to always create an experience that will leave you craving the bold flavors of Aspen.
Originally from Aspen, Chef Dodge developed a great reputation and clientele and the community is always curious as to what is next for the talented chef.

His love for the mountains and outdoor recreation brought him to Aspen. He loves pairing interesting and complex wines with the internationally influenced dishes of BOSQ. He is excited to introduce guests to unknown, underrated, and affordable wines to give them a holistic dining experience. When you come into BOSQ be sure to ask him what he's currently excited about.
Christopher came to Aspen in 2002 and has been living back and forth between Aspen and California until recently when he decided to stay put in the mountains.
