You Can Dine In An 1893 Icehouse At The Historic La Marmotte In Colorado
Telluride is a world-famous destination for shopping, winter sports, and celebrity homes, but did you know that it is also the perfect place for foodies? Not only is the fare downright stellar, but so is the history of so many of these establishments, including the 1893-icehouse-turned restaurant that is La Marmotte:
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Located in the heart of Telluride, La Marmotte is about as small and intimate as they come, as the building where it resigns is a renovated masterpiece that pays homage to the mountain town's past.
While a former icehouse may sound - well, cold and uninviting - the 30-year-old La Marmotte is anything but, thanks to its bare brick walls, eye-catching art pieces, and a picture-perfect table set atop white linen table cloths.
Though the menu changes nightly, you are guaranteed one of the best meals of your life at La Marmotte, which is owned and carefully curated by Mark Reggiannini, a world-renowned chef who specializes in exquisite French dishes.
Are you wondering what you will find at La Marmotte? You can begin with an impressive wine collection and such starters as charcuterie, caviar, and oysters.
In terms of the main course, La Marmotte serves everything from a Salade Maison to Scallops Piperade to Colorado Lamb Chops.
Psst... be sure to save room for dessert! You can thank us later.
