Our current plan is to reopen for dinner service on Friday June 12.  We’ll keep you posted if there is a change of plans.

Born on the 4th of July 1986 and nestled between the Hermosa Cliffs and the Twilight Peaks, the Sow’s Ear is intimate yet airy and well appointed.  With four massive windows overlooking the wilderness, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Come join us at the Sow’s Ear Restaurant for dinner and libations and a most pleasant dining experience in the heart of the Rockies.
