A throwback to the prohibition era during Telluride’s mining days.

A small trap door will open on the front door where the password is to be given. Once inside, up to 12 guests will be escorted through the kitchen into the quaint and hidden dining room.

Guests will be greeted with a cocktail or mock-tail followed by a tantalizing, 5-course Chef’s tasting menu paired with molecular mixed spirits, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. The prefix menu will change every couple of weeks. Look on Facebook for our weekly password. Or in The Daily Planet classified adds. Under “The Tunnel”.

Leave your knives, guns and cell phones at the door.


  • Had an amazing dining experience at The Tunnel last night! After each course was presented the chef described the dish, and the mixologist explained the drink he had prepared to accompany it. The food was fantastic with the paired beverage! Everything was cooked and served accurately- the seared scallop, empanada, and pork hatch chili were some of my favorites. It felt like we were tucked away in a hidden place for dinner. The decor and handmade details made it feel like a truly special occasion. My only regret is that I probably can’t come every two weeks to try the new menu! If you’re in town and want a memorable evening, get on the reservation list and enjoy.
