The Little Nell's Montagna Restaurant to Get $2.5 Million Makeover

The Little Nell, Aspen

The Little Nell, AspenThe Little Nell in Aspen will soon shutter its restaurant for remodeling. After a 10-week, $2.5 million renovation, the dining room and bar will be better integrated, creating a natural flow from one space to the next. The main dining area will have improved seating with wooden tables, and high-tech lighting will create a distinct feel to each dining period.

Central to the redesign is the stunning wine wall running from the bar into the restaurant- which will store the restaurant’s 20,000 bottle collection. Sabato Sagaria, the director of food and beverage for the hotel, will no doubt be pleased as punch, considering he just received his Master Sommelier Diploma. Helming the renovation project is Bentel & Bentel Architecture, which recently garnered the 2012 James Beard Award for restaurant design for Le Bernardin in New York City. The restaurant will reopen on November 22, 2012, just in time for Thanksgiving. For more information, visit
