Telluride’s Restaurants Featured by Forbes

Forbes Life just published a story on how Telluride is a secret foodie town.  Recently I dined at the 2 spot, Allred’s at the top of the Telluride Gondola, and dinner was fantastic while General Manager Mario Petillo was welcoming from the start.  The potato croquet appetizer, was outstanding, basically an upscale tater tot. My wife Sutton and I split the miso marinated Alaskan black cod and the Veal Scallopine.  Bothe were excellent, cooked perfectly, a tender fall apart fish, and lemon-garlic sweet veal.  My only complaint would have been that the portions be a little bigger for the prices.


The number 6 entry, Brown Dog, features a great Detroit Style Pizza, the 313, and that is the best pie in town, high praise from an ex New Yorker.  I am off to the #10 spot tomorrow, 221 South Oak.

Telluride’s Talay Grille is Delicious

On Saturday Night, I had a delicious dinner at the Talay Grille  beneath the Inn at Lost Creek in Mountain Village before the Telluride AIDS Benefit Fashion Show. The appetizers were so good that it only left room for Drunken Noodles!   The Crispy Duck steamed buns and Tempura Shrimp Hand wraps were my favorite.  Great job by Telluride Ski Resort, the owner, in conjunction with Siam in Telluride!
