La Marmotte, Telluride

150 San Juan Avenue
Telluride , Colorado
Tel: 970 728 6232's insider take:

La Marmotte may be the most romantic place to dine in Telluride. Situated in a century-old wood-and-brick building, which originated as Telluride's icehouse, its atmosphere is warm and inviting. But you're likely to come for the eats, such as the duck breast with reduction sauce and prosciutto-wrapped scallops, followed by a molten chocolate cake and espresso ice cream for dessert. Or try the $40 three-course prix fixe menu, a favorite of the local gourmands. In August, chef Mark Reggiannini—a former sous-chef for Jean-Georges Vongerichten—picks wild morels in the morning and sautés them at night.

Open daily from 5:30 pm.
