A Mediterranean dalliance at Zoe’s Kitchen

Prior to this visit, I did limited research on Zoe’s Kitchen. My plan was to go in blind to see what my experience would be without outside influences.  I reached out to their Facebook page to lock down a reservation.  They were swift in their reply and relayed to me that they don’t take reservations,…

Ahoy Cap’tain at Bonny & Read

Many people will roll their eyes at you in Colorado when you say you can’t find decent seafood. Often, I hear, “Seriously, we’re in a land-locked state, go to Seattle if you want good sea bass!”.  I get it folks, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t intrigued when I read about the opening of Bonny…

A Trip Down The Rabbit Hole

Unbeknownst to me when I set up my visit to The Rabbit Hole that I was venturing down the stairs to what used to be the city morgue.  I was mid-gulp of my Rosé when this revelation was revealed, and yes, the hairs on my neck stood up.  Our table of eleven nervous brave patrons…

Eat with the Kings | NaRai Siam Cuisine

I don’t typically head to a restaurant to satisfy my desire for Thai food.  My Friday night consists of pajamas, Parks and Recreation on Netflix, and a delivery of Pad Thai around 9:30pm.  I’m serious.  Well, folks, things are a-changin’ in 2017.  I selected a sensible outfit for my trip off the couch, and headed…

Wrangled up at Cowboy Star

For several months, I have had Cowboy Star on my culinary radar, browsing their menu weekly with the anticipation of a young child on their way to Disney World.  I reviewed the dinner menu and felt that it was a bit pricey for my very small dainty wallet.  However, the lunch menu had some of…

Visiting La Cava

It’s been several weeks since I experienced this very upscale and unique setting – but it is still very fresh in my mind.  This southwest Colorado Springs restaurant is situated on 8th street in a maze of office buildings.  At night, it was a little difficult to find, but once I walked up it was…

Luck It’s Food Art

It has taken me a couple of weeks to articulate this experience upon seeing a childhood food favorite, Pork Rinds(Skins), on the menu.  This sent me into a culinary tailspin! Brother Luck Street Eats is by first glance a quaint, bustling restaurant on the edge of the historic Old Colorado neighborhood.  But, as you walk…

Lets “Play” at The Broadmoor

This isn’t your typical bowling experience.  Strolling through the many corridors to get to the actual bowling alley leaves you a bit starry-eyed and breathless, and I think that is their intention at The Broadmoor.  I visited here on a chilly Fall night just before dusk and it was a sight to see.  Parking was…

Touchdown at Panino’s

When I was growing up, Italian food was always my absolute favorite! I remember a time when I thought Olive Garden was the best restaurant ever. It made me feel adult and sophisticated at the tender age of 14, but now that my palate has matured with age and exposure I’ve discovered a new love…

Molto Delizioso!

  Interestingly enough, I was up in Evergreen, CO, a few weeks ago and was in desperate need of some new reading material.  I walked around the cabin I was staying in and glanced down at a somewhat concealed bookshelf next to the bed.  I reached down and grabbed this book; dusted it off and…

Wobble over to the Wobbly Olive

When I first heard we were visiting the Wobbly Olive, my thoughts centered on their rumored grandiose drink selection.  The word on the street is that these drinks are, well, art!  There are meticulous recipes that are followed to produce these cocktails and I was excited to venture up to the North side of Colorado…

I like my eggs…Over Easy!

Ever since I was a girl, breakfast has been my thing. For me, there’s nothing like waking up to a streaming plate of pancakes with bacon and eggs. Or a breakfast burrito loaded down with chorizo, eggs, potatoes, and sausage. In our family, a hot breakfast signaled the beginning of a great weekend! As we began…
