Okay, enough about the town. Another aspect that makes the town what it is, is the people, and their personalities, of course – but it is also the food they make. What can I say that won't sound like hyperbole here? Seriously, the Rustico in Telluride, Colorado is a sterling gem.
The menu is ranged and dynamic, and the wine menu is a thick book of rare and well-traveled vino. And while the quality of the food and the experience is well worth the cost, it can be a bit of a pricy event. So, if you're planning your next anniversary or special event, definitely check out the Rustico, and Telluride itself for one of their many weekend festivals. But know, accommodations and restaurant reservations need to be booked in advance for some of the festivities.
