Had a delishous dinner at the sushi bar. The servers were friendly the food came up fast. Everything was tasty except the dessert, kind of a strange consistency.

We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu and were not disappointed. The restaurant was busy and noisy and fun and casual. The food is relatively expensive (Hello, Sushi+Aspen=$$), but worth it.

Kenichi is definitely the best sushi in Aspen. The service is prompt and excellent. They have regular edamame and spicy edamame. Try the latter. It's very good. All the sushi rolls we had were excellent. We are definitely going back. What a fun place.
