We sat at the bar and ate since all the tables were reserved. Nice to be able to do that! Good food, great atmosphere, fun bartender:)

Tucked away in a converted house on a side street near the Gondola is a little jewel box of a restaurant, the eponymous 221 South Oak. The vibe is mellow and warm, the portions are large and the atmosphere is relaxed, all befittng a Frontier Town like Telluride. The little bar in a front is a good watering hole if you are looking to hideway from the hubub on Main Street and the entire dining experience here is laid back and charming. On my visits, the food has been varied, with a focus on meat dishes, and often with an unexpected NOLA slant, unexpected for Southwestern Colorado at least. But the dishes are well executed with an emphasis on spice and sauce. I suggest you save room for desert if you can, you won't be dissapointed. All in all, 221 South Oak is a "neighborhood gem" that visitors will wish was in their neighborhood and I strongly urge a visit when in town.

A very good meal. Food was rich and may have had a few too many ingredients on the plate, but we enjoyed everything. Service was very good.
