Christmas Lunch or Dinner 2013

Hi,

Heading to Telluride for Christmas this year.

Can anyone suggest a nice restaurant for a family of 10 for Christmas Day.

Lunch or Dinner, not sure which one. Opinions here welcome also.

Looking for something in the mid price range, traditional fare.

Thanks

What does "mid price range" mean to you? Can you give a $ amount per person? Last year we went to the Sheridan Chop House on Christmas Eve, but stayed home Christmas Day. At that time they were serving a limited menu ~ choice of 3 or 4 entrees only and I did not feel that service and food prep was up to their usual standard.

"Nice" restaurants are 221 South Oak, Sheridan Chop House, Allred's, Cosmopolitan and La Marmotte. You may want to check their websites to see if the menu appeals to you and find out if they will be serving on Christmas. The next tier down is going to be places that serve sandwiches, pizza, sushi, ethnic foods, etc. There are several good ones, but that may not be what you had in mind for Christmas dinner.

Mid-range eating is obtainable, but you will be at Brown Dog, Smuggler's or The Corner House. All either a pizza joint, brewery and burger joint. I love La Marmotte, my wife and I always go there when we feel like spoiling ourselves. The Chop House is also another favorite, and 221 has great food. I would plan ahead, if you don't you won't get a table. There are not a whole lot of nice dining restaurants, and they fill up very fast. I also really enjoy the Bistro, they have a small little dining room, with great Italian food. Their Lasagna is amazing!!! Enjoy, think snow!!!!

I love Telluride Bistro! Forgot about that one. You will definitely need reservations, especially for a group that large. I would suggest making them a couple of months in advance. Many people visit over the holidays with the same idea in mind.

Thanks everyone for your advice.

I was thinking of spending around $50 a head on food, and then wine on top of that.
