Tantalizing Selections in the Old West
- New Sheridan Chop House, Telluride, Colorado
by Carl Burnham
The New Sheridan Chop House provides a tantalizing menu of fresh meats, seafood, and pasta to select from, right in the heart of historic Telluride. As part of the New Sheridan Hotel and Bar, the oldest building in town (which opened as a hotel back in 1895), many legends have got their start here.
The New Sheridan Chop House is under the expert management of Leslie Brown, who coordinates the yearly Telluride Wine Festival (one of many festivals here) held June 27-29 each year.

New Sheridan Hotel
Walking through the historic New Sheridan Hotel & Bar next door to the New Sheridan Chop House, one has a rich sense of the old West. Telluride was the site of Butch Cassidy and his gang’s very first bank robbery in 1889, getting away with almost $25,000 of the area miners' money. Visit the New Sheridan Bar where it is said that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid planned their bold holdup of the San Miguel Bank just down the street. The bar consists of a rich cherrywood. Locals say that a resident comes in on occasion on his horse to whet his whistle.
