This venue is closed. Aspen owner Greg Brier has apparently swapped his position by the après-ski fire for one on the metaphorical couch. He's opened Amalia, named after Sigmund Freud's mother and located adjacent to the Dream Hotel. But there was nothing subconscious in his choice of a chef: The coastal Mediterranean menu was concocted by Ivy Stark, a veteran of both Dos Caminos and Rosa Mexicano. Her new culinary direction has yielded dishes like warm duck-confit-stuffed dates with dried-fig mostarda and serrano ham, and her American Sommelier Association certification has enabled her to assemble an eclectic, whimsically categorized list of food-friendly wines ("tantalizing" and "agile" reds, "elegant" and "lively" whites). The design, which incorporates leather-clad, barrel-vaulted ceilings and a black Murano-glass chandelier, might come off as a bit brooding—but there's no need to overanalyze it.
