EAT & DRINK

DINING

The New Sheridan Chophouse (http://www.newsheridan.com/restaurants/1)
is the best option for an upscale, in-town steak. The red-velvet banquets and period fixtures evoke the town’s mining history. A bison rib-eye, truffle fries and creamed spinach offer the perfect finish to a day on the slopes or trails. The Hotel was first built in 1891, re-built after a hire in 1895 and still feels like a miner’s paradise.

If you are thinking of trying another nicer restaurant, try the Cosmopolitan (http://www.cosmotelluride.com/) or, better yet, eat at the New Sheridan again.

The Butcher and Baker (201 E. Colorado -  http://www.butcherandbakercafe.com/ ) is a great spot for breakfast - egg sandwiches, burritos and fresh baked goods. Recently established in their new location, they now offer a full lunch and dinner menu AND A WIDE RANGE OF BEERS ON TAP!

La Cocina De Luz (123 E. Colorado) is a friendly Mexican option popular with locals. Unlimited chips and salsa and a nice terrace in the back.

Siam Telluride (200 S. Davis) - A longstanding Telluride favorite - now complete with a full range of Telluride Brewing Co. beers on tap. Be sure to book as it is always full.

ON THE MOUNTAIN

Giuseppe's - (Top of Chair 9) - Best place on the mountain for an informal lunch. Everything is good - pulled pork sandwich, bean plate, chili, pasta etc. Spectacular views of the resort, Mt. Wilson and on to Utah.

Bon Vivant (Top of Chair 5) - If you are in the mood for upscale, on-the-mountain dining or apres-ski drink, this is the place. Worth it, at least once. Sunny, incredible views and delicious mushroom soup. There may even be somekind of beer special starting at around 2pm. Try the Estrella Damm Inedit beer, (designed by Ferran Adria!) Try another.

BARS

The Sheridan Bar (http://www.newsheridan.com/restaurants/2,)
Telluride’s classic saloon, is a popular spot for après-ski, pre-dinner drinks, after dinner drinks or a private poker game on the mezzanine.

The Last Dollar Saloon is a slightly grungier, slightly more local, slightly livelier version of the Sheridan. Feed the jukebox and saddle up to the bar. Its proximity to the Livery makes it an ideal first or last stop. Try your hand at "Elk Hunter."

GROCERIES, BEER & WINE

Over the Moon (200 W. Colorado/ Behing the Patagonia store) - A charming place to find cheese, artisanal Italian products, meat (BACON) and other gourmet specialities.  They will happily help you put together the makings for a mountain Fondu.

Telluride BottleWorks (129 West San Juan.) - The best beer/ wine shop in town by far. And... on the way home from the lifts!
