#1 Rated Restaurant in Telluride 

Chef Chad Scothorn is the mastermind behind the continuous success of Cosmopolitan Restaurant. His unique interpretation of classic dishes combined with his ability to incorporate locally sourced ingredients means he delivers an inspired menu that delights and is incomparable in the region. Start out with the infamous crispy shrimp & calamari served with a sweet & spicy sauce. These gems are mouthwatering with a perfect, light crunch. Mains rotate depending on the season but you can be assured of steak, lamb, pork and of course a vegetarian option. The Kurabota Pork Two Ways dish comes with a succulently braised pork shoulder and a meatier grilled pork tenderloin, accompanied with sugar snap peas and macaroni & cheese. Don’t leave before dessert or you will miss the opportunity for coffee & donuts! The donuts are actually beignets and are made fresh so allow 15 minutes for these bites of heaven. 

Cosmopolitan is a seasonal restaurant which closes during the shoulder seasons (closed April through late May & mid-October through Thanksgiving). 

Local Note –  Happy hour special here is fantastic! $5 signature Cosmpolitans and 1/2 priced sushi from 5pm-6pm served in the bar and lobby areas.
