The whole family will love enjoying a takeout meal from this gourmet Italian spot. Known for their gourmet pizzas, pasta, and salads, Brunelleschi’s serves up incredible lunch and dinner dishes that even the pickiest eaters will fall in love with!
During normal operations, you’ll want to stop by the restaurant in person so your kids can participate in the fun Make Your Own Pizza event. But for now, you’ll love curling up by the fire and enjoying classic Italian starters like calamari and shrimp scampi or the decadent portabella salad, which is topped with roasted red peppers and goat cheese and comes on a bed of mixed greens drizzled with a balsamic reduction.
For your main course, dine on a deliciously warm panini; the restaurant is known for its iconic Brunelleschi’s Italian beef baguette, which is chock-full of shaved seasoned Italian beef, sweet and hot peppers, and caramelized onions. There’s also the unique ahi tuna panino, which tops the delicious seared ahi tuna with avocado, Swiss cheese, field greens, and a tasty wasabi mayo.
Of course, pizza is Brunelleschi’s main event. The 10” pizzas can be customized with a variety of additional toppings, including olives, mushrooms, roasted red pepper, pineapple, capers, roasted eggplant, or tomatoes of the sun-dried, sliced, and cherry variety. Add-ons include decadent choices like chorizo, pine nuts, arugula, or various cheeses, from shaved parmesan to goat cheese to ricotta.
Partnered with the iconic New York City bar, Dante prides itself on being one of Aspen’s premier apres-ski destinations. The cozy restaurant is located at the foot of Ajax Mountain, featuring COVID-friendly protocols like socially distanced tables and temperature checks. Fortunately, you’ll be able to easily enjoy the restaurant’s delicious fare from home; through their app, Dante continues to offer their full menu for both delivery and carry-out.
Dante provides tasty breakfast treats like avocado toast, prepared with delicious grilled halloumi and soft boiled eggs, and housemade banana bread, which is served toasted with ricotta and honey. Diners also love the cheese plate filled with local artisan cheeses and crackers, the crispy calamari, and the freshly shucked oysters with mignonette and lemon.
But where the menu truly shines is its main course offerings. Enjoy a caprese flatbread with pomodoro mozzarella, basil, and chili, or the verde flatbread, which comes with spicy lamb sausage, mozzarella, and arugula. Of course, Dante is also known for its fabulous pasta. From the pappardelle al ragu featuring wild boar to the spaghetti alle vongole with manila clams, garlic, chili, white wine, and parsley, there’s something here to delight every Italian food lover. Finish off your meal with the sweet tiramisu or the strawberry and balsamic panna cotta.
