Good point. Since I had heard someone was proposing this some time ago, I knew were they were at. But you are right...if you are trying find their location with their website, you have to dig for it.

I know there was talk of some sort of city market or farmer's market in the downtown area; one area being considered was one of the old warehouse buildings along Sierra Madre St. IIRC there also was talk of using the former Gazette office building over near Memorial Park, but I've been gone 1.5 years now and no longer paying much attention to local matters. When I think of city markets I think of Pike Place Market in Seattle (the place where they throw fish from vendor to vendor) or Reading Market in Philadelphia, or "world famous" Lexington Market in my home town, where you CAN get the world's best crabcakes at Faidley's. I've eaten great food at all of these places.

If COLO SGPS had a place like one of these it would energize the whole city.

The description sure sounds good: The House Pastrami – USDA Prime beef brisket brined for days then smoked for hours. Served on our signature rye bread from the Boulangerie then lathered with Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

If anyone tries it, or has tried it ... report back here!
A George Costanza favorite. He actually mixed Pastrami with watching TV and other guilty pleasures.

Savelli's Pizza- love that place!!!!!

Unfortunately, we don't have anything quite like those that is workable/available.

The ATSF Railroad Depot would have been good, but it has developed a new life as the Catalyst Campus. The DRGW Depot may have worked but the owners weren't agreeable to any terms for it. The Midland RR Roundhouse would have been great for this, but it was built out into numerous successful places quite a few years ago. We simply lack the significant historical structures to create as neat a place as any of those you listed. The place this has landed is a decent compromise as its art deco facade was put together in the 1920s and it does have a fair amount of open, rambling space for some growth along with some adjoining buildings that may become available. Its also near a couple of mid rise places under construction and not far from one that had a recent major renovation.

Fingers crossed that is can grow and thrive.

Not sure if I posted this here before, but if anyone out there is craving New Mexican food (not the wimpy regular Mexican sauces), Arlene's Beans in Monument is very good. I love their red sauce - actually has some heat. The green is pretty mild if you are not into hot sauces.

Also, I discovered recently that Red Robin has started serving Donato's pizza. I grew up with this style of pizza in central Ohio, and although Donato's was not my favorite, I am glad to be able to get it here.

Maybe I already mentioned this...Smorbrod is really tasty. Scandinavian open style sandwiches. In the Lincoln Center off Cascade. The Nightingale bakery there has some yummy stuff too.

When I bought bread at Nightingale Bakery, I got two loaves. I paid, walked out, and looked to my daughter, asking her "Did I really just spend $16 on TWO LOAVES OF BREAD?!"

I hear their baguettes are cheaper and amazing, though.
