French Alpine Bistro
Aspen’s Only Award-Winning Fondue Restaurant & French Cuisine
Proudly featured in publications such as Vogue, The New York Times, Lifestyle, and more, the French Alpine Bistro is a must in the City of Aspen. The service, which is just as memorable as the decadent food, as said by Fodor’s, is just part of what makes the romantic restaurant an experience that must not be missed.
“I could wax lyrical all day about the sexy candlelit French ambiance, superior staff and service level, the cuisine, the sensitive and intuitive way the event management team accommodated my eccentricities, and so much more.”
“Love is in the air at this snug little restaurant, which has won awards for its distinctly romantic atmosphere. Sure, it’s French, and effortlessly bohemian by extension, but the amour in question also comes by way of its charming mountain-resort setting.”
“The ambiance and menu are unrivaled at La Creperie du Village, a French bistro whose ever-evolving selection of culinary highlights is as savory as its eclectic-chalet décor is inviting.”
What do you consider your style to be? Gemütlich. The word refers to a feeling of warmth, friendliness, and a sense of belonging, which guests experience in this charming candle-lit hideaway. The owners, who designed the restaurant themselves, furnished their award-winning establishment with rustic wood panels and precious antiques from the old world. The French Alpine Bistro features dining spaces that transport guests to the back streets of Paris and into the Alpine mountain chalet at the same time.
Where do you find your design inspiration? Family heirlooms adorn the walls, while soft sheepskins dress the comfy chairs. A heated patio and a street-level lounge invite guests to relax with a glass of wine while taking in the spectacular mountain views and watch the world go by. According to co-owner Karin Derly, “We envisioned this as a place for people to create happy, lasting memories.” Many satisfied customers from around the world agree that French Alpine Bistro – Crêperie du Village is unquestionably the most adorable and celebrated restaurant in town, not to be missed when visiting Aspen.
