Sitting 10,551 feet above sea level overlooking the town of Telluride, Allred’s is Telluride’s flagship restaurant at the top of the Gondola. Easily accessed from Mountain Village or the Town of Telluride, the restaurant and bar feature one of the most extensive wine lists in the world alongside innovative culinary selections.
Following Allred’s 2014 designation in Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” category, Allred’s was recognized as one of this year’s “100 Best Wine Restaurants in America” by Wine Enthusiast . Allred’s was included in the Central Region, a class comprised of 20 other states and only 13 other restaurants.
Allred’s wine list features over 1,000 bottles in the superior cellar with a variety of verticals, regional breadth and vintage depth. With this comprehensive coverage of the world of wine, Allred’s stands among the top local establishments when it comes to wine selection and culinary diversity. This range and diversity can be attributed to the resort’s Wine Director and expert sommelier, Andrew Shaffner, a nominee for Wine Enthusiast’s Sommelier and Wine Director of the Year Award this year.
General Manager Mario Petillo has been perfecting premiere service, a sustainbly sourced menu, and luxiourious experience for years. In addition to the distinguished wine selection at the top of the gondola, Allred’s features stellar cuisine for guests while overlooking stunning views of Telluride during sunset and throughout the evening. The bar at Allred’s opens at 3 pm for a perfect aprés ski or while you’re waiting for dinner to begin at 5:30 pm sharp. The versatile menu f eatures town favorites such as hand cut truffle fries, Colorado braised beef short rib, and bourbon marinated elk strip loin while also accomodating guests with restricted diets.
"Envision sustainably sourced elk on your plate, presented by servers who've achieved at least Level One certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers," said Wine Enthusiast.
