Touting more than 80 flavors of low-calorie, flavor-packed frozen yogurt, Tutti Frutti earned a feature on CNBC and has continued to expand since opening its first shop in 2007. Inside each store, self-service yogurt machines unleash velvety-soft yogurt into accommodating cups or empty purses. Their constantly rotating flavors include royal red velvet, pomegranate, or choco-peanut-butter. Most flavors fall within the range of 20–25 calories per ounce, with dairy-free options and no-sugar-added concoctions also available. A toppings bar allows eaters to further customize yogurt creations with a spoonful of fresh fruits or a sprinkling of nuts. Their flavors contain ample amounts of probiotics, known for potential health benefits that may include strengthening immune systems and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. Organic probiotic yogurt for dogs is available in four flavors. In addition, Tutti Frutti offers a selection of soy-based yogurts as a non-dairy choice for vegans and partners with Nutrition & Education International to donate 10% of soy-product proceeds to help fight hunger in Afghanistan.
Though the interior of the Sherpa House Restaurant is fragrant with the smells of naan bread and spiced curries, this tantalizing cuisine is only part of the eatery's allure. The space itself functions something like a museum, except that visitors can actually take a seat and speak above a whisper. Built as a reproduction of a traditional Sherpa house in Nepal, the restaurant seats diners in a family room with a kitchen, in a buffet room beneath a thatched roof, or on a patio perched beneath waving flags. A shrine room, photo gallery, and museum room with traditional artifacts afford more in-depth peeks at the rich culture and history of the Sherpa people, who are widely known for their mountaineering skills.
Behind the scenes, chefs work carefully to make sure that their entrees accurately capture the seasonings and healthfulness that Nepal's cuisine is known for. Cumin, garlic, tomatoes, and ginger spice up pieces of beef, lamb, whitefish, and yak. Naan bread, which they bake in a clay oven and cool on a windowsill atop Mount Everest, soaks up savory pools of curry, stew, and daal bhat. Desserts include kheer, a Nepali rice pudding, and sweet lassi, a drink blended with yogurt, rose water, and sugar.
The inexpensive and sometimes cheesy ‘60s films made by Italian production houses in the wake of Sergio Leone’s success are often known affectionately as spaghetti Westerns. Years later, Lori Phillips’s love for these movies and her Sicilian grandmother's recipes would inspire her to open Trigger's...A Spaghetti Western, which is named for Roy Rogers's famous horse. At the restaurant, the executive chef and his staff craft sauces from those same Sicilian recipes for alfredo sauce, marinara, and shrimp scampi.
The 1890s building appears to have dropped in straight from a film lot in Los Angeles, giving one the sensation of visiting the Old West without all of the cowboy songwriters constantly asking what rhymes with tumbleweeds. Posters of Roy Rogers movies line the sunny yellow walls that surround gingham-topped tables and country-style wood chairs.
Celebrating seven years of service and flaunting freshly painted walls, Saigon Landing Restaurant reopened last year in Greenwood Village with its menu of fresh, heart-healthy Vietnamese cuisine intact. At the Greenwood Village location, an eclectic range of Eastern flavors abound, with lemongrass and curry anchoring plates piled with pork, chicken, seafood, or veggies. Outside, an American flag billows over a grassy border lined with vibrant foliage, fir trees, and a friendly giant tasked with blowing away approaching storm clouds. The Greenwood Village location is close to the United Artists/Regal movie theater off of East Arapahoe Road and I-25.
Regally appointed with Victorian-era décor and blush tones, Saint James Tea Room furnishes guests with flavorful teas and savory morsels to complement the elegant atmosphere. Settle into the sophisticated experience with unlimited tea, coffee, or lemonade and a miscellany of 12 home-crafted noshables such as a freshly plucked fruit dish and delicate cucumber sandwiches. Deviled eggs tempt taste buds, and meat pies and spinach-bacon tartlets add a dainty twist to carnivorous appetites. Reach subtly but determinedly for helpings of baked goods such as cream cheese and apricot scones, raspberry madelines, and the historic black-walnut cookies hailing from turn-of-the-century squirrel-manned tree ovens. Sweet-tooth owners will continue their foray into the dessert realm with fresh fruit tarts, chocolate rum cups, and a white chocolate cameo medallion that doubles as an edible brooch ideal for nibbling on during parlor-game night.
Boasting an extensive variety of tasty, authentic Southwestern and American cuisine, Table Mountain Grill & Cantina's menu could convince a stuffed burrito it was hungry.
