Chef and Owner Jay Wulf’s Greenside Café calls to mind Hemingway’s "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place." It’s light and airy with a few hidden booths that, like Hemingway’s shadowy leaves, are refuge from the hustle of the dining room—and the city on the other side of the mountain. Perhaps the correlation between Hemingway’s stark description of the human condition and a place that serves enormous and tender slabs of chicken-fried steak is a little too deep, but mountain air has that effect on people. While you’re up there, order the Sangre de Cristo, a sandwich similar to a Monte Cristo with ham, turkey, Swiss and cheddar cheeses, green chile, and grilled, egg-battered Hawaiian bread. Everything’s made in-house, including the ice cream.
