Best Culinary Experiences: EMP Winter House, Aspen
When the team behind New York’s Eleven Madison Park, routinely rated one of the best restaurants in the world, decided to bring some of their Michelin-starred mastery to a mountain town for ski season, it seemed only fitting that they’d land in a little place called Aspen. From December to April, the team is moving into the St. Regis to open a winter version of the EMP Summer House pop-up that’s been wildly popular in the Hamptons the last two years. The Swiss-inspired menu is drool-worthy, full of alpine comfort foods like fondue and schnitzel, and the drinks menu is just as soothing—think thermoses full of mulled wine. And as usual with this team, the decor and details will be both refined and whimsical. One highlight: a series of private yurts where diners can summon a server by flicking on some Christmas lights. —T.S.
