Response to Best Restaurants in Manitou Springs...


Since these threads are so ancient (and some of the restaurants don't even exist anymore, like Organic Cafe), I thought I'd revive it...

- Nicest place to impress a date
Blue Vervain - romantic, cozy, FABULOUS food (it's fun to order all the appetizers and pretend it's tapas, since there's no tapas place in Manitou, hint, hint). Beautiful "artisan" cocktails too.

- The best among the "ritzy" ones
Cliff House has good food, but overly snooty sommeliers. I prefer to have a drink on it's veranda before eating somewhere else. Fois gras was amazing, though.

- Best place to "hang out"
I'm, of course, biased towards Ned's; but come on - free wi-fi, High-Times, endless coffee refills and geat just screams "hang out'.

- Tastiest/Best food
Blue Vervain. Seriously. Go there.

- Most overrated establishment
I'm going to say the Loop, although I do love it. But when considering that it's just mediocre mexican, you have to concede that the local raves are partly fueled by the enormous margaritas.

- Most underrated establishment
Mo's. Not exactlty "The Best Food In Town" as the sign claims, but really cute and yummy - especially when you want a Bloody Mary with breakfast after hiking. Also - China China is suprisingly great Chinese (and I've had Chinese in SF, LA and, oh - China).
