I've been to Joey's; it's good and worth patronizing.
Crowne Plaza wasn't much; nouveau riche Texans now give it a gag-worthy name. Ella-gon-tay. Pretentious to the max. I'll never go, not with a 10 commandments plaque in the lobby; monied Texans are the acme of greed and hypocrisy. They need to choose, are they a hotel or a church; make up your mind. Better yet, go back to Texas.
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.
thanks for the reminder about the pepper tree, I always forget about this place.
We go to sushi ring and sushi ring II at least once a month and have developed a real love for both restaurants and it's people. Best sushi in town, bar none.
An excellent book on this issue is Wheat Belly: http://tinyurl.com/o3wne7d
Where or why did Fine Asian Cuisine Close or move? I need their Vietnamese egg rolls.
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.
China Town's hairgel hot and sour soup is perfect! I have always loved the thicker consistency. China Town please never change your hot n sour soup!
Folks are missing a GREAT pizza if they haven't tried Marco's "Pepperoni Magnifico"
What, no green chiles?
I don't believe that much is organic. On their website, click on the "keeping it natural" tab under "about us." (http://larkburger.com/about-us/keeping-it-…) One of our grievances when we reviewed them last may (http://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/high…) was that they served commercial meat, which felt a bit like greenwashing considering the other care for sustainability.
Everything at Lark Burger is organic plus they compost and recycle.
But is the kale organic? Otherwise it's not so healthy for you.
Yup, we have to go to Denver for the good stuff. :)
Don't use SoDo. We aren't Denver.
Suzies homemade food is incomparable with Denny's " old crank" it's not Starbucks so no fancy coffee blends but for the average person it's good coffee with darn good food and service for a great price. Worth trying for yourself
Whatever, dude. Just as a New Yorker I find it amazing. Thanks for sharing your awesome experience of NOT eating an authentic Reuben sandwich in the Big Apple. LMAO!
As long as we are on the topic, there are two types of knish: potato and kasha (buckwheat). The kasha knish is baked but the potato knish can be baked, grilled, or deep fried. A potato knish should taste like thick, peppery mashed potatoes. The outside should be flaky if it is baked or chewy if it is fried, but never doughy. I think Mr. Schniper's knish was underdone.
Most New Yorkers, I believe, eat them plain, but I like to dip them in ketchup.
