dinner in Telluride
Need some suggestions for fresh food, innovative flavors or just an amazing meal in Telluride - there on a wed & thurs night if that makes a difference- lover of great beer & great wines as well... not a formal feel.. any help is appreciated!
What time of year?
There are many really great restaurants to pick from; what cuisine interests you the most?
Most places aren't formal, it is the mountains but at certain times of the year, the clientele will be a bit more formal than others.
There are no microbreweries in town.
Are you looking for a burger kind of place or a place that will set you back
some serious $$ ?
I'll check back for replies and give you this locals point of view.
Cosmopolitan in the Hotel Columbia -- Very good food, good wine list too.
221 South Oak - Charming, also very good food.
Honga's Lotus Petal - Very fine Asian fare; don't know/can't remember whether she serves wine.
Top of the gondola:
Allred's - Go for a drink, a nibble and the view, even if a full meal is beyond your budget.
The Capella Hotel was under construction when I was there in December, but I sampled some of the chef's creations at a special event.
9580 or similar number in the Inn at Lost Creek
