Bistro de Pinto downtown is very nice. It's not cheap, but quality and presentation are both very well-done in a tasteful, intimate space.

Coozan's was here for a while and closed a few years ago. There's a place up in Briargate that's not bad, Culpepper's Louisiana Kitchen. Should be room in town for another. My late father was from Baton Rouge so I grew up on gumbo, etouffe, blackeyed peas, pork chops & turnips, etc. Just made a pot of gumbo last Sunday! Dad, brother and nephew all LSU alums. Geaux Tigers!

Probably not this Friday. #1 versus non-ranked. I'll still watch, though. Enjoy the boot.

Default Casa Diego in Monument

Hey gang, here's one we found last night. Not sure how new it is, but we thought the food was really good.

Casa Diego is in Monument. Take I-25 north, exit at Hwy 105, then go right - away from Monument. Go past first light at Jackson Creek, then turn right at second right which is Knollwood, you'll see Casa Diego on the right in a tiny strip mall. Most Saturdays they have a 2-piece combo playing from 6 to 9, nothing loud or brassy, not mariachi music. The other couple we were with know the guitar player, seems he's from Cuba, he came over to our table and sang a melodious ballad for our lady friend.

Food was excellent and very affordable, a really neat place. I loved the Chili Relleno plate, better than any I've had in years, bright flavors. Friendly staff that you can kid around with, a really good time. Big roomy booths seat six full sized adults without crowding. Not a single disappointment the whole time we were there. Right now they've a 12-foot xmas tree in the lobby, topped with a sombrero and a full sized Santa that awed the kids who came in. The place has a large menu of dishes, and numerous margarita choices.

Anyone else been there?

s/Mike

Having been to COS just once I don't know how new it is but I was impressed by Gertrude's on W Colorado Ave. Great food, good service and a cosy, comfortable atmosphere.

Default Spicy Pickle

Just opened, in the King Soopers center at Union and Briargate, across from the new Memorial Hospital North.

Went today for the first time. LIKED IT! Will return.

Panini sandwiches, soups, salads, subs. Custom made sandwiches.

Far nicer than Subway or Quizno's. Not at all fancy like Panera. No bakery or pastry counter or gourmet coffee. Starbucks is two doors down. Mr. Smoothie is next door.

No selfish ninnies taking up a whole table for 4 at lunchtime, by themselves, to use their silly laptop. I hate that at Panera.

The bread on our Panini was marvelous, light but firmly textured without being tough like the stuff at Panera. Great flavor. The corn and green chili soup had a perfect zing to it.

No doubt a chain, but darned good stuff. Eat in or carry out.

s/Mike

BTW, I forgot to say congrats postal. LSU was celebrating too early after their last score in regulation. I think that really motivated the hogs.
