Siam's Talay Grille

Telluride’s Thai favorite
Siam Telluride has been a favorite of both visitors and locals alike for more than a decade, so people were thrilled when its owner, longtime local Jeff Badger, opened offshoot Siam’s Talay Grille at The Inn at Lost Creek in 2013. The fusion Thai restaurant has since become one of Telluride Mountain Village’s go-to places for drinks and apps, après-ski and fine dining.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Chef Adam Pace knows his way around an Asian kitchen, and he’s adept at everything from striking the right combination of flavors and textures to presenting every course in an artistic manner.

• Talay’s tea selection, which features Asian brews such as Bombay chai and gunpowder, dazzles as well. (Many of the teas are also for sale here, so tea lovers take notice.)

• Wood floors, dimmed lighting and a sophisticated assembly of Buddhas, five-foot-tall Oriental vases and hanging rice lamps create a warm and inviting mood in this Asian-style restaurant.

• Expansive windows, however, provide the best views in the house: those of the mountains. Year-round, it’s fun to watch the gondola whiz by outside of the glass panes.

• Live music is a regular part of Siam’s Talay Grille winter and summer, both during happy hour and at dinner inside and out, depending on the weather. Thankfully Talay has crafted a terrific cocktail menu that pairs well with the tunes.
Things to Know
• The Sunset Concert Series in Telluride Mountain Village showcases some of the best moments of the summer in this beautiful mountain destination, and Siam’s Talay Grille is a great place to take in the music.

• The Telluride eatery serves a hearty mountain breakfast daily for both hotel guests and visitors alike from 7:30 to 10 a.m.

• Head to Siam’s for a light après ski nosh from 3 to 5 p.m. daily and then stop by for dinner complete with mountain views from 5 to 9 p.m.

• A mountain casual dress code invites you to bundle up in your coziest sweater and even jeans when dining at the Inn at Lost Creek’s signature restaurant. Just leave the shorts and flip flops at home come summertime. 
The Food
• Starters present layers of Asian flavor, such the tempura shrimp hand rolls, crispy duck spring rolls and Bangkok chowder chock-full of bacon lardon, Gulf shrimp, tilapia and Thai basil.

• Savory main dishes such as chicken green curry, tofu drunken noodles and kabocha squash ravioli are presented along with more inventive entrées, such as Thai shepherd’s pie — layers of panang-braised short ribs, sweet corn and red curry mashed potatoes.

• Top your meal off with a tempura banana dressed with chopped peanuts, chocolate sauce and whipped cream, and you’ll be glad you’re in the mountains where outdoor activities reign supreme and you can work off the dessert.
