Where to Eat: Crested Butte Fine Dining

Choosing where to eat can be more challenging than skiing down that double black run. This is especially true in Crested Butte, which offers more fine dining than any other town its size in Colorado. Be sure to make reservations early (days or even weeks before), to ensure you can grab a table during the busy seasons.
