When visiting Flights Wine and Coffee's Morrison location, guests might feel as though they've been invited over to a friend's house for an evening soiree. Housed inside an 1870s cottage, the tasting room invites visitors to settle into cushy leather furniture surrounded by pastoral wall hangings and a crackling fireplace. On the garden patio, guests gather around wrought iron tables and warm their hands by the fire pit.
The two locations are connected by more than decor. Each hosts a lengthy list of wines by the glass, and a lengthier list of bottles. A menu of light plates and tapas pairs well with each pour, stoking taste buds with flavorful hummus and wedges of warm brie. Wine experts are on hand to guide guests through their tasting experience, picking out compatible wines and offering instruction in properly swirling each pour in a lab-grade centrifuge.
Zaggora's founder Dessi was scrambling. She needed to lose a little weight before her wedding, but none of the weight loss products she used seem to move the needle. Eventually, she took matters into her own hands, inventing her own effective method for slimming down. Zaggora's multi-layer capris, tops, shorts, and blazers put the heat naturally emitted by the body during exercise to work burning more calories. A 2012–2013 study conducted by ETScience at University of Southern California showed users wearing Zaggora used less energy to achieve high cardio levels and burned anywhere from 6–18% more calories and than those wearing standard exercise clothing.
Made from a comfortable bioceramic material, the shorts' ThermoFit technology smoothes thighs and other dimple-prone areas by warming body tissues and increasing their metabolic rate. This process boosts energy expenditure before and after exercise, and aids in eliminating cellulite-causing toxins.
Rice Bistro & Sushi's kitchen overflows with cookware that steams and simmers dishes of pan-fried basil beef, pots of rice noodles for pad thai, and golden portions of peking duck. Outside the kitchen, sushi chefs behind the sushi bar craft specialty fresh sushi and sashimi; the combination of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai earned the restaurant a nomination for Best Asian Fusion in ABC 7's 2011 Denver A-List. Despite the traditional recipes, chefs are conscious of modern dietary restrictions and never add MSG, peanut oil, or sulfuric acid to their meals. Items such as basil lobster and scallops can be prepared gluten-free upon request. Diners sip on imported Japanese sodas, teas, or an array of more than 130 different wines to accent bites of tempura lobster rolls, along with 10 varieties of hot and cold sake and specialty saketinis from the full bar.
At Angelina's Fine Italian Dining, chef Bob Travlos whips up classic dishes inspired by New York City’s tradition of flavorful Italian cuisine. Toppings from pineapple to capicola ham grace five Neapolitan–style pizzas named after the Big Apple’s five boroughs. Chefs also stuff lasagna, ravioli, and ziti with homemade mozzarella and ricotta cheese. Lunches and dinners commence in Angelina’s spacious dining room, beneath a large-scale painting of the New York City skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, which Al Smith famously constructed from leftover string cheese.
At India Nepal Oven, owner and chef Chhiring Lakpa Lama fuses together South Asian influences to build a menu that equally and tastily represents the countries of India and Nepal. The restaurant's Nepalese specialties dazzle taste buds with diverse flavors found in the spiced lamb kebobs, chili with deep-fried chicken, and vegetable dumplings, which can be steamed, fried, or tossed as confetti at a vegetarian's birthday party. Of the Indian dishes, the chicken entrees are quite popular, including the spicy vindaloo prepared with potatoes and hot curry sauce. A vast selection of breads also garners popularity with the potato-stuffed alu paratha and the kabuli naan, which emerges out of a tandoori oven to surprise palates with a sweet cherry filling.
Beneath the rustic beams at Old Mill Brewery, patrons linger over frosty pints of in-house crafted microbrews while chatting near the exposed-brick fireplace. It's here, after all, where local brewers trailblazed the art of creating fine beers before the trend took shape. Today, they continue to produce six stellar beers in styles that range from pilsners to lagers and IPAs to stouts. Bartenders also tap pours of seasonal brews, such as a coconut porter, double IPA, or a fruit-infused raspberry red. Platefuls of home-cooked American fare complement each sip of suds, and include classic burgers and sandwiches along with a slew of succulent entrees?such as homemade fish ?n? chips. Nestled in historic downtown Littleton, Old Mill Brewery welcomes scores of friends and family who flock to its homey charms for a leisurely meal or to enjoy televised sporting events on its big-screen TVs.
