The Bonefish Grill is NEW here and it's excellent; a chain we enjoyed greatly back in NoVA.

Note, they are a dinner house, not open for lunch except for Sunday Brunch.

It's in the University shopping area on N. Nevada where Costco is, at the sound end along Nevada.

We love it, especially an appetizer called Bang Bang Shrimp, can't describe it, but it tastes great.

Had lunch today at the Cucuru Gallery Cafe, on Colorado Avenue by the park in Old Colorado City...an authentic mom-n-pop place with great service. The Cuban sandwich (Panini) is outstanding.

Agree. Bonefish is great. Haven't been to the new one here yet. My only complaint with the one in VA (Fredericksburg) that we went to was that it was very noisy (lots of hard surfaces and nothing to mute the noise). Hope this one's different. Also agree with YoYo on Cucuru. Also had the Cubano; it was excellent. It's primarily an art gallery, with an emphasis in Cuban art. Interesting place and nice folks.

Went to McGinty's in Divide - food was good.
Also, there's a new place called Gloni's down in Southgate - kind of a weird set up but it was also very good food. Marketed as "Italian street food" - not really formal dining but sit down dining yes.

It may have been mentioned already, but there's a new Firehouse Subs, up off North Academy, East side of the street, where the Car Toys shopping center is....near Bestbuy. They have a pretty good meatball sub.

OK, it's not technically new, but Vietnam Garden restaurant has relocated from 31st Street and Colorado to the strip mall at Gold's Gym at Union and Briargate. Best Pho in town!

Don't know if this has been mentioned yet, I'm reading from the beginning, still being new to culinary exploration in the region, myself...

Altitude Sweets is closed, but they have a new business on the same street but closer to Powers, called Stephen's Bakery. I looked at the website, and they have Challah bread...I am SO EXCITED. It's been years since I've had any. I am wild about Jewish bread products, between that and bagels...mmm...

Speaking of bagels, I went to this bagel place over near the Tinseltown theater off of Lake/Venetucci and the guy told me that they were one of only TWO establishments in the Springs area that sells bagels made the proper way, with the boiling step of the process. Now, I don't think that can be right, because doesn't Panera do that with theirs? And are there not an Einstein Bagels or two around someplace? All I know is that I'm ferociously annoyed by how Lenders stopped being good years ago when they quit selling the "Big and Crusty" bagels and now all you can find in a grocery store are these mushy bagel wanna-be's. They are not real bagels at all!

They've some "best of" awards for the orange rolls and cinnamon rolls.

Oh, also...when my in-laws were visiting, my MIL insisted we go to this Airplane restaurant that she'd seen in a brochure or something. It's right next to Powers on Fountain. Just want to say, I do NOT recommend. We ate in the plane, which is a narrow tube of metal (a plane, duh) and our party had to be split up into 2 tables, of course the interior of a stripped airplane isn't decorated, it's just stark metal with little windows. The buffalo steak I got had been thin-sliced (they had only one kind on the menu which didn't describe the cut of meat) and you just don't DO that with buffalo meat. You have to keep it thick and juicy! Prices were high, and the place was empty, and I killed a couple of ants at our table while we waited (too long) for our food.

So yeah, tourists beware. The novelty aint worth it.

Agree. If people MUST go there, order the burger.

I lived in Albuquerque for 20 years and am eagerly awaiting the opening of Dions Pizza. The best pizza I've had since Godfather's Pizza! : )
