Noted chef and restaurateur Nello Balan, opened Nello Alpine in December 2015 along with his daughter, partner and creative director Lucy Balan. Located adjacent to the Residences at the Little Nell in Aspen, Colorado, Nello Alpine is reminiscent of a modern European chalet, with dishes inspired by Balan's European upbringing. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, apres ski, and dinner, and brunch on the weekends, Nello Alpine's menu is Italian inspired in the dining room, while the Trails menu, offered at the bar, features signature dishes from the top mountain regions of the world, including Japan, the Rockies, Switzerland, and Peru

Throughout, Nello Alpine is an an inviting gathering point where both locals and jet-setters can revel in the amazing mountain backdrop, enjoy inventive, ultra quality cuisine, check out cutting edge art installations, and of course apr es ski and hang out into the wee hours."
