    Bites 2013: Pad Thai Woon Sen

    Here's a superstar plate for the gluten-free crowd, still a treat to non-restricted eaters. Rather than the wide rice noodles you're used to on standard Pad Thai, the Woon Sen is built on a base of thin "bean thread" noodles. They get the same stir-fry treatment with a rich peanut flavor, and though egg adds some protein, it's well worth the upcharge for soft prawns to contrast the bean sprouts' crunch. Heat level's up to your better judgment. ($6.80/$2.50 extra for shrimp)

    Best Of 2014: Restaurant for Herbivores

    Best Of 2014: Neighborhood Restaurant: Manitou

    "The biggest thing" to hit Adam's Mountain Café over the past year, according to owner Farley McDonough, is that the restaurant has gone full-bar. After 30 years without, that is a big deal. "We're not trying to do a big bar scene," McDonough says with a laugh, "but people can come in for a killer Bloody Mary at breakfast, or a Manhattan with dinner." Of course, in keeping with the rest of Adam's style, the bar leans local and Colorado when possible. And that Bloody Mary? It's extra special — with organic ingredients and vegan, house-made Worcestershire sauce. — Kirsten Akens
