Start mapping a meal plan as you peruse the menu, which is speckled with flame-kissed starters such as the whole smoked garlic ($6.95), drizzled with olive oil, rosemary, and breakup notes from broken-hearted succubi. Anglers can reel in the tropical tastes of a marinated and grilled ahi tuna ($13.95), which is served with pickled ginger and wasabi mayo. The buffalo wine burger's char-grilled flavor ensures no part of its grilled onions, green chilies, and sautéed mushrooms will be wasted ($9.95).

The Wines of Colorado
Thanks to its impressive selection of varietals from more than 95 local wineries, The Wines of Colorado has been lauded as "one of the most unique wine shops in the country" by Wine Trail Traveler and featured in the Wall Street Journal. Inside, a mural of larger-than-life bottles lines one wall, and an adjacent room houses an expansive tasting counter that stocks a lineup of bottles filled with Colorado reds and whites, which are often compared to Californian vinos. Their food has received it’s fair share of recognition as well, earning numerous awards, including Best Creekside Dining from the Gazette in 2010 and 2011. The chefs sizzle up signature buffalo wine burgers and creamy dill mahi-mahi, which guests can enjoy on the pine-tree-lined outdoor patio as they sip wine mere steps away from the burbling Fountain Creek.
