Bars & Cafes
This high-five of a dining spot was recently voted as the "Best Mountain Restaurant" by Denver's 5280 magazine. Located in the renovated Old Town Carbondale House, the restaurant exudes an inviting, cozy look that manages to offer fine dining in a casual setting and at amazingly reasonable prices. The menu is ambitious and the kitchen takes great pride in always updating it with new and refreshingly different items. The Alaskan Halibut and Colorado Lamb are two of the more popular dishes. The wine list is extensive and ever changing as well.
An atmosphere as lively and enthusiastic as the name ("come on, come on!" in Spanish) is to be found at Venga Venga, where the Mexican fare is delicious and the tequila just never stops flowing. The location affords spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, and the fire pits on the patio literally give you a warm welcome. Grilled quesadillas, shrimp ceviche and cantina nachos are best shared with the group, following which are many delicacies you can devour alone. Pulled chicken burritos, skirt steak fajitas, pork carnitas and chile relleno are a few of the scrumptious offerings. There are some exceptional margaritas like the Don Julio, Cabo Grand and Espolon, as also beers, wines and a few non-alcoholic drinks.
It is not hard to see why this restaurant and bar at Stonebridge Inn has been named 'Artisan'; pains are taken to ensure that every item on the menu is a work of art, a treat to the taste buds. The best produce of the season is made use of to create scrumptious dishes like rabbit risotto braised with red wine. The bar menu offers a number of light treats like the crispy Yukon Gold potato gnocchi and Chinese chicken salad. The wine menu has something to complement any meal you may be having. The bar opens at 3p daily, with Happy Hour from 3p to 5.30p.
