AspenSpin.com always says, Go BIG or go home.
Nelson Ventures chose to go HUGE by openning Aspen's brand new hot spot, CRYSTAL PALACE GRILL. With longtime local Vince Lahey running the front room and head chef, Brad Smith in the back of the house, the newly re-opened CPG is destined for greatness.
Mead Metcalf loved and nurtured the original Crystal Palace for the first 50 years and created the legend. Upon Mead's retirement, Nelson Ventures stepped in to utilize "one of the best rooms in Aspen " and write its own history in the historic space .
CPG is a traditional American Steak House. The menu features steaks made from 100% KOBE BEEF along with big thick juicy American cuts of USDA Prime beef. Other highlights include grilled salmon, lamb chops, fresh cut veggies and all the sides. Already a house favorite are the famous "David's cottage fries", named in honor of the late Ambassador David Hermelin. " The fries are deeeelish", exclaimed one happy customer. CPG features an extensive wine list from the private collection of Nelson Ventures CEO, Linden Nelson and the "smartly priced" bar menu has been attracting a lot of attention from Aspen Locals.
