Bryce is correct in his review. All our beef is indeed from Ranch Foods Direct.
I figured as master chef of the universe you would know that Sysco’s CAB (Certified Angus Beef) beef most likely doesn’t come from Colorado ranchers, in fact we don’t know where it comes from. Too bad there isn’t country of origin labeling required for restaurants. Also Ranch Foods Direct doesn’t give kickbacks for doing business – just good meat. And unlike Sysco and CAB, there is no Pink Slime in the burger.
Though it is Sysco, I assure you it is C.A.B. from Colorado ranches. Not everyone is on the RFD teet. Bryce.
Barry, What does that mean...before the church crowd discovers it...did you do something their presence makes you feel uncomfortable about? Do you need to go to confession and be absolved?
... and only about 3000 calories.
We had a great breakfast at Springs Orleans recently. Beignet, and Bananas Foster French Toast. Very good. Check it out before the church crowd discovers this secret.
Mollicas deli staff is the most unfriendly around. And for an Italian Deli/Restaurant, they are far from authentic. Try Gaglianos in Pueblo, Spinellis in Denver, Monteleone's in Trinidad. THOSE are authentic Italian.
Been to Mollica's, agree, it's good stuff.
Worst Brat in town were the Bison Brats we got at a small meat market on Woodmen, just off I-25, near the REI store. Fried them up, they gave off a foul-smelling yellow fat of some kind, after two bites both the wife and I stopped eating them, threw them out immediately, worst tasting thing EVER. Never went back to that place for anything else.
Second Worst Brat in town has to be over at Skysox park. Whatever it is they sell it's very bland tasting and hugely overpriced, not to mention boiling them is a sacrilege. Never again.
For the same price (or less) of any restaurant or ballpark brat we can buy a pack of 5 Johnsonville Beer Brats at Soopers and be superbly pleased with the experience. Biggest problem in this town is finding some decent hot dog rolls to put them on.
The Hungry Bear and the Pantry are both worth the drive in the summer *because* they're nice drives. Popular brunch spots for motorcyclists.
Thank you for the suggestion that we close on slow days. Every year I consider this carefully but in the end I decide that it would be very confusing to the public to know when we are open and when we are closed. But, more importantly, up to 10 good employees would lose their jobs in the middle of winter with very little prospect of finding another job until Spring.
should close on slow days!
Regarding "The Weeds" and Adam's Mountain Cafe, we are indefensible with regard to the what happened that night and were terribly remiss. This is our slowest month of the year and we run a skeleton staff through February with the exception of Valentine's Day. My husband and I took the kids skiing and the SOS texts starting coming in around 7pm. Usually we are ready to come in instantly if we get a fluke hit but we were too far away. I tried contacting 7 employees to come in and help but none responded quickly enough to make a difference. I apologize to all those who dined at Adam's that evening. We are usually very cautious and aware of events and things happening around town that might effect business on any given night. I regret any incident that erodes the trust established between Adam's and the public. We have a Front of House meeting this weekend and "The Weeds" article will be discussed in detail as we determine what choices could have been better made to prevent such a disastrous evening.

Amicas still is a part of the Il Vincino enterprise.
Actually, I went to Einsteins mainly because it was new to the heart of downtown, and just happened to get the chile-containing item. I also didn't know what beer Steve would send me until he did, so it was complete coincidence that we ended up with a chile theme this week.
Sure, had I designed the column with chiles in mind from the get go, you likely would have seen three completely different places featured. Who exactly? Good question — green chile is all over the place around here.
Anyone you would have liked to see in particular?
With all the places to go for chiles, you pick Einsteins? (I hate using this word)- REALLY!
The Chicken and Waffles from the West Lobby Bar are now on the Charles Court Breakfast Menu as well.
Never had a bad meal at Roman Villa. It's small, get there RIGHT at 5PM when they open.
Their house wine is sold by the Liter, in a carafe, not the usually overpriced 750ML bottle found in other eateries.
Ah, Manuel's relleno, so fantastic! Glad you highlighted it.
Taking Matthew's advice, I stopped by Thai-Eats and had a DELICIOUS lunch. The tamarind curry (soup) was excellent and the Panang chicken, the special of the day, was a take-out that I ate later, which was very good, although too much white rice for my taste. Also bought a jar of preserved mangoes from Thailand - and very glad I did. Do yourself a favor and stop in. The proprietess is delightful.
$17 for noodles? guess you dont read the news
