You might need to save up a month’s salary to afford a dinner for two at the new Element 47 in Aspen, Colorado, but the food, scenery, celebrity sightings, and vast wine list make the experience worth the price. Element, the signature restaurant in Aspen’s poshest hotel, opened in November after a multi-million-dollar dining room renovation. Sit at the bar and munch on burgers slopped with local cheddar and a side of duck fat fries.
