Upscale Dining at the Base of the Gondola
Walk across the street from the Gondola in Telluride to find one of the area’s finest dining establishments, the COSMOpolitan. Long-time chef and owner Chad Scothorn serves up American fare with choice ingredients, many of which are sourced regionally. Each experience starts with a loaf of bread made from scratch and sprinkled with sea salt. Dining options always include fish, beef pork and vegetarian dishes. Start with the chopped salad, artfully arranged in strips of arugula, avocado, house-smoked salmon, Israeli couscous, egg, corn, nut & fruit medley and four dollops of buttermilk dressing. Or choose an appetizer to share with the table. Some favorites include crispy shrimp & calamari and lobster corn dogs. COSMO also has one of the best happy hours in town. From 5 p.m.-6 p.m. daily, get half-priced sushi rolls, house wines and of course, Cosmopolitans!
