Chad Scothorn brought his culinary vision to Telluride, Colorado, in 1996 after 22 years in restaurants from Oklahoma to Argentina. The Cosmopolitan, a fine-dining, 80-seat restaurant that serves contemporary cuisine, is in the Hotel Columbia, just steps from the gondola in downtown Telluride. Scothorn also operates a private dining room, the Tasting Cellar, on the same premises. The Cosmopolitan has been featured in Wine Spectator as “one of the prime movers of the local dining scene,” listed in the Zagat guide, and has earned the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator every consecutive year since 1998.
