Happy Easter and Closing Day in Telluride

Happy Easter from sunny Telluride, Colorado.  Today is closing day and the end of a fine year of skiing and snowboarding.  Although we may have wished for more snow (when do we not?) it was a good year with plenty of sunshine and good days.

Even Stickers the porcupine was enjoying Milk Run yesterday afternoon for some slushy skiing!


Now we get to look forward to golf in the region, the opening of the refurbished and expanded Clarks market and the Summer Festival season.

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.
