Today we went to a new place called OVER EASY and loved it. They do breakfast and lunch only and you can get breakfast all day. Some might find it a bit pricey but the servings are large, the food was excellent and we'll be going back.

We went to the one at University Village on N. Nevada; it's very near to Hacienda Colorado. There is a downtown location that also has meeting rooms.

Place was packed on a Monday at lunch, not that huge, could've been larger and a bit loud as it has no sound deadening.

Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and some smoothies with an optional shot of vodka.

I tried it for breakfast about a month ago, with high expectations and I was really really disappointed. Cold food, well it was slightly warm. And it took a long time to come out. I just wasn't impressed with the meals we ordered. When I complained, I got an "I'm sorry" but that was it! We may give it another try but not if I have to wait.

I ate there and aside from the very noisy, crowded atmosphere, our food was quite good.

Try the original Over Easy downtown location (the old Slayton's). Much less noisy and less crowded now that they've recently started using the restaurant next door, Sonterra, which is under the same ownership, for overflow. The UV location has been packed since the day they opened and I think the kitchen is still a bit overwhelmed, at least that was our impression when we ate there a few weeks ago.

While it is not new, it is relatively new to its location downtown. I took my mom to Coquette's Bistro and Bakery and really loved the food. It was so delicious to enjoy fried chicken and calamari and some delicious bacon and artichoke dip with gluten free pita bread. For dessert I had a delicious eclair. So delicious and I honestly can't remember the last time I had an eclair. So delicious. Even if you aren't gluten free this is a great little spot. They have patio/sidewalk seating. To drink I had lemonade with crushed strawberries, my mom had lemonade with crushed mint. So so so good. Enjoy fellow city data peeps.

Well, on the other side of this coin, the TFI Friday's on Woodmen at I-25 recently closed.

There may be a replacement eatery called the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, a sports bar, that takes over the space.

I wonder if all the new eateries in the University Village area cut into Friday's sales to the extent the parent company pulled the plug.

There's a lot of similarity between the menus of Fridays and the Tilted Kilt....

Allow me to barf. But hey, if taking your family to this wholesome restaurant is your kind of family values and keeps you away from respectable places, than knock yourself out. Keeps me from being seated next to a table full of Tap Out and Affliction clad bros.

Seriously, it's disgusting. I have more respect for someone who goes to a strip club.

On the opposite side of the coin from Tilted Kilt.......

The Broadmoor recently opened up Restaurante Del Lago at Broadmoor West. Tuscan-style Italian. It's pricey (it's the Broadmoor), but it made for a very nice dinner. The front part of the restaurant has tabletop-to-ceiling windows, that can be fully opened up and pulled back, so it's almost like eating outside alongside the lake. It's a nice addition to the already-impressive dining options at the Broadmoor.

I'm with you on that. I went to a Hooter's once in the mid 1980s to see what it was all about, haven't been to one since. Ironically there's a Hooter's next to the location that Friday's just vacated. It would suit me fine if both places went away and we got something really neat in there like La Madeleine or Au Bon Pain.

Lol I just clicked on the link for the Tilted Kilt...

I was thinking it was going to be some soul less take on an Irish pub for those that don't like to stray from the plastic chain restaurant experience. Well I guess it is a chain experience just a little more silicon than plastic...
