New, 4 comments

COLORADO — Eater National is covering the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen all weekend. Today, Andrew Zimmern, Jim Meehan, Paul Kahan, and Dana Cowin all stopped by the lounge. Here's Andrew Zimmern on the restaurant reservation wars: "I do want every advantage to be given to people, but I think we also have to remember it's the hospitality business, and the moment you lose sight of that, I believe you lose customers."
