There are several social events with food served during the conference, including:
The Meadows Restaurant (breakfast and lunch) invites you to dress casually and show up without reservations.
Cocktails are served in the Hefner Lounge in comfortable chairs around the fireplace.
Plato’s Restaurant (dinner only) overlooks the mountains and a wooded riverbank.
Visit the official site for details and menus.
Different restaurants in Aspen have special deals on each day. Mention “physics” to be seated together with other attendees.
The Hefner Bar at the Aspen Meadows Resort also has a very nice bar menu. Plato’s is lovely for a quiet dinner “at home.”
If a restaurant listed above cannot accomidate you, or you want to explore Aspen’s other options, look at Eat Aspen for details and off-season speacials. Also have a look at other Nearby Attractions for your dining needs.
