Jazz Aspen Snowmass is always a huge undertaking. This year Pyramid Bistro was privileged to be chosen to cater for the VIP tents. This was no small feet for us. Weeks of prepping and months of planning go into the 3 day June Festival,serving around 200 people each day. Hours of time go into planning the live cooking stations and hot line. But when the Labor Day Festival hits months of planning can never prepare you for the thousands of people Who show up hungry and ready for a great show. Pyramid Bistro did not disappoint and neither did Kid Rock!

Dr. Furhman author of Secrets Of Health Cooking, has declared Pyramid Bistro the first ever "Nutritarian Restraunt".
