Food is more than a meal, it is an experience and one not to be missed. Telluride has a lot to offer for food, but of all there is to choose from, here is my list of Telluride’s most Romantic evenings out. Each of these fine dining experiences were chosen on their flavorful and stunning dishes, intimate spaces, and high end service.
Known as Cosmos, this restaurant is conveniently located directly across from the Gondola Station in the Town of Telluride and is fully run and owned by head chef, Chad Scothorn. A contemporary cuisine focused on using local ingredients to create seasonally creative masterpieces with elegance.
The historic building of Telluride’s former Ice House, is now the location of a fine dining experience like none other in our mountain town. A unique and intimate setting with a modern french cuisine. La Marmotte brings the influence of France to our backdoor with fine wines and ever reinvented takes on classic meals.
From the moment you walk in, find warmth in the log cabin feel and friendly welcome of General Manager Mario Patelli. From your window seat, let the setting sun of a mountain top view set the mood for a romantic evening beneath the stars. And for the menu, Chef Gorman presents stunning and classic Coloradan meals such as juicy Lamb Chops and savory Elk steak accompanied by the finest wines of your choice.
