With over 50 restaurants, bars, distilleries, and nightlife venues in the Crested Butte area, you’ll want to use this guide to know which ones are best for your palate and for your budget.  Chances are you’ll probably work up an appetite while you’re here.  The good news is this town has some serious dining chops (lamb if you prefer), especially for its size.  You’ll discover new flavors from local farms to countries around the world.

So the real question is what are you craving? If you’re into craft beer,  The Brick has 30 taps including an excellent cellar list.  In the mood for some Thai?  Ginger Cafe offers the freshest dishes featuring their spicy curry.  Maybe a quick burrito from Teocalli Tamale is your spot apres-ski.  A pre or post-dinner cocktail from The Dogwood will include drink concoctions you won’t soon forget.  You will be amazed by the culinary creations available within walking, biking, or a quick shuttle ride’s distance.

This guide is divided into different meals and drinks to help you narrow down your choices.  And one more thing; there’s no dress code anywhere in town so feel free to show up in your ski gear, pajamas, or tuxedo.
