...and that goes for the good vibes of There in Telluride. We have really enjoyed this funky little joint for the past couple of years but our visit last week left much to be desired. The flash-fried brussell sprouts were as good as ever, and turned out to be the highlight of the evening. They were out of their red pepper jam used to make their signature drinks and the draft beer listed on the menu was non-existent. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive but the owner was a real jerk. Without asking, he snatched away one of our dishes before we were even finished with the food, then rudely grabbed the menus from our table (dropping a napkin in my plate) even tho we were still in the process of ordering different dishes. When I asked him if we were bothering him he made some remark about menus on the table bothering him (made no sense to me). He was really just downright rude. We just tried to overlook the issue and have a good time. My wife ordered another drink, which the waiter completely forgot. Somebody must have realized what was going on because the waiter brought us a complimentary dessert board, which was nice. The bill, as usual, was settled via an iPad, which has choices for the tip of 17%, 21%, 25%, etc. Unfortunately, they don't disclose that the tip is based on the food, drink AND TAX. So our easy check-the-box 21% tip was in reality 24%. I've always recommended this place to anyone visiting Telluride. That won't be the case anymore.
