Looking for me? Cool. You can find me at one of Telluride’s best restaurants Cosmopolitan. Parked in the Hotel Columbia just steps from the gondola ~ not only is Cosmo (the short name for those in the know) easy to find, but you will fall in love with the food!

I was joined by my pal Susan from Telluride Inside and Out (visit her blog for a complete review) & 2 others to enjoy this wonderful sampling of Cosmo’s menu on a chilly winter’s night. You too can join us for some bites!

Gotta love a great Cosmo Cocktail! FamilyFreshCooking.com

Y’all know I love to keep the words short & show you food through pictures.

The menu is seasonal, well thought out, beautifully styled & delicious! Above you see the Classic Cosmo.

I have yet to meet Chef/Owner Chad Scothorn..but I will let you know when I do. He gets praise everywhere & my pal Paul Ferzacca the Chef/Owner from La Tour Vail says we will hit it off fabulously!

I did however get to meet the Chef de Cuisine Chuy Aymar. A great guy who is so very talented in the kitchen!

Mmmmmm. Sushi! Cosmo Restaurant | Fine Dining in Telluride, CO | FamilyFreshCooking.com Cosmo is well known for their Aprés Ski 1/2 price sushi & $5.00 Cosmopolitans (LOVE) & $5.00 glasses of wine Monday-Sunday 5-6pm.

That’s right everyday you can get your sushi & buzz on at this elegant restaurant.

Don’t you worry, this is Telluride’s Aprés Ski scene. Which means you can wear your ski pants & plaid flannel shirts. Or your fur, diamonds & bling.

Below are a few more must try cocktails. The wine list is extensive as well. You will be very impressed by the selections.
