The Village Table

Tapas at Village Table Telluride

Casual Mediterranean Eatery in Mountain Village 

The Village Table is a terrific place that many times flies under the Telluride restaurant radar. Situated near the climbing rock and the duck pond in Mountain Village, it is easily accessible. Bring the family or a date to eat delicious tapas, paella, and other specialties like quail, duck and steak frites.

 

Graze on house-marinated olives, marcona almonds, salt cod croquetas, and grilled artichoke hearts before diving into a warm goat cheese salad and one of the three paellas served. Choose from the traditional seafood paella with saffron rice, mussels, shrimp, cod, and clams, or the chicken and chorizo version. The third version doesn't feature meat but is packed full of veggies.  

 

The Village Table is one of the few restaurants in the area that has a printed kids menu. All the typical choices are there, including buttered noodles with parmigiana, pasta with marinara and meatballs, and PB&J. For kids ready for something a bit more exotic there is jasmine rice and shrimp.
