Whether you’re in the mood for comfort food, fine dining, or good food in a stunning natural setting, you will find what you’re looking for. Here are five restaurants in Colorado Springs, CO, that you will want to take advantage of.
With a perpetual top rating from Zagats, Carlos’ Bistro restaurant is practically a Colorado Springs institution. Here you’ll find fine dining at its best and a warm greeting from Chef-Proprietor Carlos Echeandia.
The menu focuses on locally sourced, organic, and artisanal ingredients, all with a whimsical twist. Locals love the tequila-sipping menu, and though Colorado is landlocked, the seafood is sublime. Take advantage of the grilled Colorado lamb, calf liver, or paella.
The Rabbit Hole
Entering this hidden gem is indeed like going down a rabbit hole. This unique restaurant is located underground, and once you enter, you’ll be amazed by the Alice in Wonderland meets speakeasy meets gothic subway decor.
Locals rave about the meatloaf (crafted from rabbit and pork), bison short ribs, and the boneless ribeye. The eclectic cocktail menu is also a local favorite.
Ambli Global Cuisine
If you’re seeking an upscale yet friendly ambiance, head to Ambli Global Cuisine. As the name suggests, this restaurant is all about variety. You’ll find worldwide cuisines from Asia to the Mediterranean to Latin America.
The global tasting menu is a great place to start, with several courses representing world cuisines. Ambli’s cocktail, beer, and wine selection is robust. Take advantage of the exceptional wine and cocktail pairing service.
When you’re in the mood for “cyberpunk izakaya,” head to Chiba Bar. This Colorado Springs staple has an almost-perfect Yelp rating and offers a unique blend of traditional Japanese pub, anime, 80s punk culture, and a laid-back Rocky Mountain sensibility.
The menu is short, to the point, and easy on the wallet. Local favorites include the spicy Scottish salmon donburi bowl and the tuna sashimi salad. Unfortunately, reservations aren’t accepted, and you may experience a weekend wait.
The menu is populated with seasonal dishes from local farms, focusing on wood-fired and grilled selections. Where else can you enjoy a bowl of wild boar green chile, a bison burger, or Rocky Mountain red trout? Also, look at 1858’s extensive selection of Colorado craft beers and signature cocktails from the state’s prohibition era.
