There are many ways to experience one of the preeminent cities in the world, Denver, Colorado. A young, active, and diverse community has built a culture like no other, and the payoffs come in many different forms. If you’re like me, one of your favorite new aspects of living in Denver is the world-class food. While not historically known as a culinary mecca, Denver is showing that an old city can learn new tricks! Actually, in 2017, Zagat rated Denver the 4th most exciting food city in the Nation! That said, what better way to see the city then by a food tour? Enter Savor Denver Food Tours;... Read More

Find Home at Lucile’s Creole Café -A little café, with a big heart

May 1st, 2018

  With all of the new restaurants popping up in Fort Collins, especially in the Old Town area, sometimes it is nice to return to an old favorite. Lucile’s Creole Café has held its popularity as a breakfast and lunch spot in Fort Collins and other Northern Colorado locations. Passing by, you may mistake it for a small house. It has a bright yellow exterior, a fenced in yard, and a homey feel. With the restaurant being both small and busy, a wait is always to be expected on the weekends. An average wait time at Lucile’s, that I have grown to accept, is around 30-45 minutes. The food is... Read More

Brunch Never Tasted So Good     

March 7th, 2018

Finding a delicious southern style brunch spot can be tricky in Denver, unless you know where to look. Right off of South University Blvd next to the DU campus sits the gem called Four Friends Kitchen. Started by (you guessed it) four friends, this family friendly neighborhood spot has mouth watering breakfast options you need to try before you die. From grits that are cooked all night, to hot and fresh beignets, you can tell that this restaurant knows what it’s doing when it comes to southern comfort food. As I walked into the restaurant, I was immediately drawn to the beautifully decorated... Read More

Start Your Morning by Hitting Snooze

February 28th, 2018

So, you’re on your way to catch a train, and absolutely starving. You’re not fond of the slap-dash bagel places or the egg sandwiches you can buy at the kiosk in the train stations, so you don’t know what to do. You turn around and there it is, staring you in the face. Snooze the restaurant. You walk up to it and are immediately energized from the atmosphere. You sit down in the packed breakfast eatery, stare at the mouth, watering menu, and live happily ever after. Although Snooze has multiple locations throughout Colorado, California, Arizona, and Texas, I happened upon their... Read More

Pizza Lovers Unite

February 21st, 2018

Pizza; a food that generates lots of discussion on how it’s best made, but nonetheless, loved by everyone. The New Yorkers claim their pizza is the best, while the Chicagoans claim that deep dish is the only way to go. The debate of whether pineapple belongs on pizza or not is still on-going. Some say less toppings is more, and others say the more the merrier. All in all, people are very passionate about their pizza choices, which they should be. Even though it’s hard to satisfy everyone, Lucky Pie does a great job of creating mouth-watering, home-made, fresh ingredient, Neapolitan... Read More

Greatness Has Been Found

February 14th, 2018

A couple of key things separate “good” bakeries from “great” bakeries. The pastry dough (although obvious), is a key factor. If you don’t have crumbs all over your plate, your table, and yourself, while eating a croissant, you know the dough is lacking. A great bakery must also have a selection of fresh breads for sandwich purposes, or for just eating all at once. And last but not least, there should always be desserts, because let’s be honest, you can’t eat a French pastry without a French dessert to go with it. It just so happens that La Fillete (French for little girl),... Read More

Deliciously Good With a Twist

February 7th, 2018

Calling all humans who eat food! To the meat eaters, plant eaters, fruit eaters, and everyone in between, this next restaurant is for you. Watercourse Foods has your back, because with this extensive menu ranging from tacos, to mac n cheese, to wings, you’ll be coming back for more before you even leave the restaurant. My journey began once again with a nice sunny day on E. 17th St., but this time at the corner of N. Emerson St. I walked up to Watercourse Foods where there was an outdoor seating area that looked like it had garage style windows that come up when it’s warm enough. As... Read More

There’s No Place Like Steuben’s

January 31st, 2018

Click your ruby red slippers together three times, and I’m sure you’ll end up at Steuben’s. There’s something for everyone here, as this restaurant prides itself on a modern touch of the classic American style dishes you’d find at your favorite local food spot. While “American” to some might only mean one style of food, at Steuben’s they see America as the great melting pot of culture, which is showcased through their variety of foods. They wanted to evoke memories, to make you feel as though you were right back in your own neighborhood ordering the falafel... Read More

Home-Made Style Quick Eats

January 24th, 2018

Gone are the days when quick dining meant a burger with questionable meat, soggy fries, and “chicken” nuggets. We now live in a time when we can actually get a quick and healthy bite to eat while we’re on the go. However, despite the shift in healthy food choices, there are still places that lack the quality you’d hope to have. Wilted salads, bland sandwiches, and a lack of options can turn the “healthy” choice into “just another fast food place”. I’m a big believer in actually enjoying and appreciating the food that you eat, so it’s nice when you can tell the... Read More
