Hi Folks, Chad here with a Cosmo update:
I have been listening to requests and the “family style” food is what people wanted the most. We have rolled out 8 proteins that are enough food for 2 people and you can add to these to make them feed 3, 4, 5, etc. These proteins do not include sides, so you can build your own dinner with a selection of sides, salads, and desserts.
We have added 4 fire pits outside for people “jonesing” for a little sense of normality…you can have cocktails, sushi, etc. with full table service. Please dress warm or just come wearing what you skied in.
Additionally, Maury and Val are working on a “Liquor store pricing” list of wines by the bottle. These are seriously discounted and have pricing similar to the local liquor stores. “One stop shop” and you don’t even have to get out of your car.
On my next entry here, I am attempting to video (with the help of Jacob, our in-house photographer) how we make our bread…coming soon.
That’s it for now, the video should be funny.
Be safe, wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands, be nice, and drink wine!
Your digitally enhanced chef,
Set in a former grand saloon, the restaurant is run by James Beard House invitee Chad Scothorn, whose knack for grafting Asian culinary traditions over American fine-dining fare suggests the work of Citizen Public House maestro Bernie Kantak. Paired with a no-nonsense Old Fashioned, my Wagyu rib-eye – sourced from 7X Beef in Hotchkiss, Colo. – is the marvel of marbling you might expect, with a hypnotically buttery mouthfeel and just the right coppery zing of quality organic beef.

4. Telluride, Colo.
This former gold rush town is now known for its picturesque snow covered peaks and year-round recreation. Travelers recommend the scenic Telluride/Mountain Village Gondola, which offers a “distractingly beautiful view” and Cosmopolitan Telluride, which has the “best happy hour in town,” according to a TripAdvisor reviewer.

To find one of the best meals in Colorado, you’ll need to drive to Telluride—and it’s totally worth it. Just across the street from the gondola sits Cosmopolitan of Telluride, chef-owner Chad Scothorn’s homage to fusion and (whenever possible) locally sourced ingredients. Fusion cuisine often gets a bad rap but the meal we enjoyed was an exciting mash-up of Asian, French, and American dishes.
We began with a snappy and fresh spider roll (sushi roll appetizers are half-price during happy hour) and complemented that with a plate of succulent lobster corn dogs. For one entrée, we chose the subtly seasoned chicken rillettes with a tender lemon risotto, along with garden-fresh snap peas and wild mushrooms. Read more
The best thing about the chef taking time off — from his customer’s point of view, at least — is that we get to taste what he learned while he was gone.
At Cosmopolitan in Telluride, this summer that means Baby Grilled Octopus served with a potato and egg salad, duck bacon and roasted red pepper oil. Yes, Cosmo chef-proprietor Chad Scothorn is recently back from Catalonia and you can bet that the new octopus starter at Cosmo is just the first evidence of it that we will see.
Octopus has been popular for the last several years in big cities, but this is the first time I’ve seen it in the region. It’s popular because it is so versatile, so tender, so much fun to eat and it’s sustainably harvested, too, in most of the places where it’s fished.
