...Another drum roll please....
for my favorite restaurant in Telluride, Colorado!
A bar & grill is correct everybody. A bar & grill with a view is about right everybody. A bar & grill with a view and the most delicious spicy shrimp bacon lemon olive banana pepper Bloody Mary is pretty damn accurate everybody. A bar & grill with a view, damn good Bloody Mary, and magical cocoa with alcohol that you can't even taste is HELLA PERFECT everybody!
We ate here every single day for lunch (I'm not kidding though). Tomboy Tavern is located perfectly at the bottom of the mountain in Mountain Village. It's easy to get to and has an amazing menu of food & cocktails. Bars & table seating are located both inside and outside. Don't worry if the line is long (because it probably will be), tables turn pretty quickly. And once again, there are multiple bars to hang out (drink) at until your table is ready. When it's a beautiful sunny day, I highly suggest sitting outside on the patio (definitely great for people watching if that's your thing). Oh, and to all you sports fans who need the TVs... they got lots inside for ya.
One of the most beautiful things I've ever tasted. That magical cocoa with alcohol that you can't even taste that I was talking about? Well here you go, folks. This is called Cassidy's Cocoa.
Cassidy, you are a freaking GENIUS.
So if you visit Tomboy Tavern after reading this blog post and don't order a Cassidy's Cocoa, I am judging you.
That Bloody Mary makes my mouth water just looking at it. Like I said earlier, you got the spice, the lemon, the olives, the bacon, the banana pepper, the shrimp, the celery... I highly recommend.
If you want to pull a me, Mackenzie Nunn, then you start off with a Bloody Mary (or two) and then end it with a Cassidy's Cocoa.
Or you can just be the cool kid (lame) and order a glass of white wine like my brother...
Food recommendations you ask?
I ordered the same thing every single day, although, it wasn't the same thing every single day. Meaning, I ordered the Soup of the Day!
Yes, delicious, every single day.
The chili is also my go-to menu item behind the soup... so so good!
Do y'all want to hear a crazy story?
Ok don't mind this terrible picture of all of us, but I needed proof.
So last year on Christmas Eve our family, once again, showed up at Tomboy Tavern for lunch. Guess who we ran into... Chloe Grace Moretz and her family. We thought that was pretty cool (for those movie buffs out there) right? Well this year, we decided to show up at Tomboy Tavern for lunch again on Christmas Eve. Guess who we ran into? Yup. Chloe Grace Moretz and her family. Of course my family was super excited to see her in person again on the same day one year later.
We finally get seated at our table, and guess who we are next to. Your damn right. Freaking Chloe Grace Moretz and her family, that's who! We obviously couldn't be those fan girls to ask for a picture, so we decided to get creative with it... "Let's pretend we're taking a picture together with Chloe behind us." Worked like a charm (except we got the back of her head).
See you next year, Chloe!
(Maybe by then I will have the balls to take a picture with you...)
I definitely recommend Tomboy Tavern to everyone! The best time to go is during lunch when you need a break from the mountain.
PERFECT SPOT FOR FAMILY & FRIENDS.
