Re: “A Woodland Nightmare

Wow! This reporter is a dick! He had a brand new waitress as his server, of course she doesn't know everything. The waitress immediately asked the chef, after being questioned about the sausage, where it is from. As for the Tiramisu, Mangia has remarkable Tiramisu, home made daily, that gets nothing but positive feedback. I feel like Matthew, the reporter, went out of his way to rip Mangia a new one. Ramsey may not have given Mangia the kind of improvement a small town restaurant needs, but the owner, Julie Watson is doing a damn fine job getting it back on track!

Re: “With a playful spirit, Lucha Cantina finds fun in a familiar framework

Went there for lunch with a couple of co-workers and was very disappointed. We were told there is a charge for chips and salsa, strike one. The reason why we are told "the chips and salsa are made fresh daily." So what, we all have eaten at restaurants where the chips and salsa are made fresh and there wasn't a charge. They do not serve carne asada, they serve shredded beef, strike two in my book. I guess Texmex style Mexican restaurants don't serve carne asada. I decided to keep it simple and ordered off of the lunch menu 2 tacos which come with rice and beans. The beans appear to be a mixture of pinto and black beans and were seasoned and very flavorable. The rice however was very salty and wasn't cooked all the way, not even close to being al dente. The tacos were so-so and very poorly filled the taco. Would I ever go back definitely not the lack of parking was strike three, so no there are out of there.

Re: “With a playful spirit, Lucha Cantina finds fun in a familiar framework

We go to the Georgetown location quite often, the rellenos are a absolute work of art and so delicious, really glad to have them closer to home, the dedication to their product is very obvious from the taste of freshness and quality I find in everything I have ever had from them. Thanks for opening up and my family and I will see you soon and often! :)

Re: “Invest-aurant: Bourbon Brothers needs to focus on the fare

I ate there once and probably never again. Had the chicken fried steak which was as tough as eating a shoe sole dipped and fried. The steak came stacked right on top of the dirty gray mashed potatoes and some steamed veggies, lets just say the veggies were the best part of the meal.

Re: “Uncle Buck's Fishbowl & Grill ranks as spectacle worth seeing, not eating in

John, you're kind of right, in that there's something about my lifestyle that keeps me from fully appreciating the subtleties involved in turning a grizzly bear into decoration. And I must have missed the aisle for people hunting cattle.

Your disdain for Bass Pro is more than obvious. I'm sure as you sit at your desk in the city and munch on your organic tofu salad, you have no way to identify with the American hunter and fisherman. Although you may eat grass fed organic beef (I actually prefer it myself) you do so with never having to kill your own meat, it comes conveniently packaged for you at Whole Foods.
I'm sure the aura of conservative America might have been a bit much in that environ, and the "evil" of capitalism was just too much to take. But really, have you led that sheltered of life?
Non the less. Love your paper!

Re: “Wild Goose Meeting House lays a golden egg downtown

I enjoyed it last weekend but they need to work on the acoustics. The music was too loud for the space. It would also be nice if they toned down the lights. It would make a cozier, softer atmosphere in the evening. I will go again.

If it is Portland-esque, it has to be good!

Re: “Despite a few flaws, the Pepper Tree does wonderful things to a steak

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you call the power plant a blight... I call it a delight... virtually pollution free and keeping Colorado Springs Utility costs down....the clouds of steam that fill the sky provide a variety of shapes for those with imagination.... hurrah to the plant and BOO to those who consider it a blight... and this comment from an artist who realizes that there is more to beauty than what is on the surface.

Re: “Bayou meets Rockrimmon at Momma Pearl's Cajun Kitchen

As someone from Southern Louisiana, I am ashamed to to call this place a "Cajun" restaurant. They can't even spell "Laissez les bon temps roulez" correctly on their wall! The shrimp is NOT gulf shrimp, but a frozen product. "It's not legal to ship Gulf Shrimp out of Louisiana," the owner told us on our September visit. This is complete bull. I order Gulf shrimp from cajungrocer all the time. Secondly, the staff was terrible! They were more concerned about the guest ordering drinks and appetizers through the window to the bar next door, than they were in taking our orders and getting our drink refills. Furthermore, they knew NOTHING about the menu. "Chef"Brunet stood outside the door smoking and talking to someone, who I can only assume was a buddy, for the entire 45 minutes we were at the restaurant.

I order the gumbo, a pathetic soup of chewy shrimp, beef broth, and maybe a 1/4 cup of rice. My husband had the roast beef po-boy made on a hoagie roll that was so stale you couldn't bite into it, and beef so cheap and poorly seasoned it wouldn't even qualify for a fast-food restaurant. The accompanying "au jus" was tin-tasting canned beef broth. The menu also include a jambalya that boasted a tomato based sauce. Not self-respected Cajun would advertise tomato based sauces as Cajun cuisine. This is creole cuisine from the New Orleans area.

After our hopeful attempt to find a restaurant that could serve our beloved south-west Louisiana favorites, we left with, appropriately, a retracted bill and some free beignets for our trouble. They should have kept there flat, chewy treats for some other gullible customer.
