The Truffle Pig in Steamboat Springs Colorado was a great find.

Chef Ezra Duker has a light touch and sharp palette.

The flavors do not get lost or overpowered by each other.

This gorgeous grilled cheese with Gruyere and Cheddar Cheeses on Sourdough Bread with Tomato Bisque and Field Greens was probably the best I had ever had.

The bread was crispy and buttery and the bisque had a hint of BBQ sauce.

I had to order the Truffle Fries! Light and crispy; fried in Truffle oil with parmesan cheese. Fantastic.
