Where to Eat in Telluride

Telluride's unique mountain town flavor, combined with its fresh and flavorful cuisine, makes it a must-visit destination for foodies. From farm-to-table to upscale dining experiences, Telluride has something for everyone — making it the perfect place to experience some of the best food in Colorado!

Start the day with a pastry and a “Day Maker” sandwich (eggs, white cheddar, breakfast sausage, pepper jam, and arugula on an English muffin) from The Butcher & The Baker. For lunch, you can’t beat the tacos at Gnar, like the Korean barbecue or the braised pork belly (it’s best to go early in the day, too, since this place usually has a line out the door come dinner time).

Indulge in a luxurious dinner beneath the stars on 221 South Oak's picturesque patio. With a vast selection of vegetarian dishes like homemade potato gnocchi with hazelnut chili oil and grilled maitake with goji berry and walnut jam, you won't regret it! Plus, if you recognize owner/chef Eliza Gavin from her appearances on "Top Chef" and "Beat Bobby Flay," why wouldn't you want to stop by?

Step into Telluride's historic New Sheridan Hotel and head to the rooftop bar for a refreshing cocktail. As an extra precaution, many restaurants and bars offer outdoor al fresco dining options on patios, sidewalks or parklets this year - ideal for soaking in the breathtaking beauty of Telluride! For something truly extraordinary, visit one of the dozen restaurants at Telluride Ski Resort then walk over to The Cabins at Mountain Village where you can dine with your friends inside a repurposed ski gondola - what could be more fun?

To make your Colorado trip truly memorable, be sure to stop off at either Stronghouse Brew Pub or Smuggler Union Restaurant and Brewery for a sampling of the area's delicious craft beers. Stronghouse opened its doors last year within an iconic stone building, while Smuggler Union is home to their award-winning blonde ale which earned them a bronze medal from the Great American Beer Festival!
