Re: “Trinity Brewing shows a mixed bag, clear priorities

I thought he was moving to Denver years ago? Shoot, your buddy Dave relocated as he cared years ago.

LODO would find u laughable.

Still, I will say I love (though years ago now) the Belgians you had on tap. I hope you still do. Nothing like a DT draught which is so yummy.

I realize you don't recall me but I found you rude even some time ago when I could walk still at some beer outing in Old Colorado. Your saison, to me, was tasty. Still I could not even find the time to offer a smile and a hello since you were so uninspired but certainly not busy.

Re: “Not quite there

I went there pre opening nite. I liked the place but their tap wine which I think was that Parducci was swill. I mean it tasted like the bottles I keep around to cook with.

Not their fault but we did not get a menu of the other wines they were offering by the glass. I would have paid more to not drink that mess. I don't think they should even serve it.

No food that night so I won't hold them on that but there are a lot of choice in Old CO. I would go for the wine as long as they have some decent ones by the glass. This review really did not dive into that.

Since it's a wine bar it would have been nice to see the reviewer discuss their wine offerings. Sort of like going to a brewpub and ordering a coke.

Re: “Halfway there

I loved Craftwood up until about 7 years ago. I believe that's when they started changing chefs.

I had 2 bad meals there after that and have never been back. Same observations- meats were dried out.

The whole point of that place are the wild meats. Too bad. Where does one go to take out of towners for a unique CO experience now?

Re: “Mexican't

No offense Christina but I spend a lot of time in ABQ and I find the food pretty weak.
Mexican in ABQ is mostly New Mexican and is very similar from place to place. I have had little luck getting high end food in ABQ/Rio Rancho area. Of course COS you really need to know where to go also.

I agree some ratings especially on the MX restaurants here are lousy. I think you have to go to a hole in the wall say off of Platte to find closer to the real thing. La Carreta usually fits that bill although they can have an off day and I have not been there i a while.

How Muldoon's is up there shows folks don't know what good food is.

I was going to open a restaurant in this town but I think it would have to be in the Broadmoor area. A lot of folks either don't want to pay for good food or don't know what it is. That includes service, too. Getting my salad with my entree makes me want to go ballistic but I guess some folks are okay with that.
