After a long day of skiing or trout-fishing on the rivers, you’ll want to sit down to a delicious dinner. Here are three restaurants in Crested Butte where we did just that.
“Eclectic” best describes the offerings at this cozy spot, and owner-executive chef Kate Ladoulis endeavors to give diners as much local fare as possible. The trumpet mushrooms seasoned with garlic, lemon, thyme and Maldon sea salt were a triumph, and we swooned over our entrees: cherry-braised short ribs and a wild antelope tenderloin. When it came to wine, we kept things in state by ordering an earthy blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from an “urban winery” in Denver named The Infinite Monkey Theorem.
