Telluride is a small town, but it has big-city creativity when it comes to food and drink. Each restaurant is unique and has its own special flavor and vibe. Distinctive eateries and a lively bar scene can be found along the town’s streets and in the heart of the Mountain Village. In town, the historic Chop House Restaurant at the New Sheridan serves up thick, juicy steaks and fine wines, while the cold beer and spicy BBQ at Oak is the locals’ choice for après. Two on-mountain restaurants, Allred’s and Alpino Vino (open in the winter only), are accessible by gondola or snow cat and offer one-of-a-kind, high-mountain, dining experiences.
