Element 47 in Aspen most definitely has seasonal dishes, as ingredients may vary seasonally, weekly or even daily, depending on what executive chef Robert McCormick finds at the produce market at the time. Generally, the menu offers heartier items featuring root vegetables and hearty greens in the winter months, with lighter entrées, summer-fresh produce like artichokes, peaches, and corn in the warm-weather months. Dinner entrées focus on Colorado-raised meat, fowl and game, but the presentation of the beef, duck, pork or lamb will likely vary depending on whether it’s the spring, summer, autumn or winter season. The same holds true for seafood dishes and dessert items at the main restaurant in The Little Nell.
