Travel post: I’ve got one more post from my Colorado/Utah trip.
In the heart of downtown Aspen, sits the historic Hotel Jerome. Built in the 1880’s, this place is still the towns social hot spot. Inside this hotel is a bar called J-Bar and inside this bar is a burger called the J-Bar Burger which has become almost as iconic as the hotel.
There’s a lot going on here and you have a lot of choices. Local organic beef from the 7x ranch is juicy and flavorful and cooked to my medium preference. My choice was American cheese, delicious braised onions, tasty bacon, shredded lettuce, a slice of tomato and a couple of thin sliced pickle strips. I had their house made 1000 island sauce slathered on the top of the soft, lightly toasted brioche bun. An over easy egg was lobbed on top of everything.
Yes, it was a mouthful! A delicious mouthful. The J-Bar Burger sets the bar very high. I really liked this burger!
