Proprietor/Chef Glenn Williams, formerly of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Pueblo Harvest Café and Bakery, uses sustainable planning from the tablecloths (no throwaway paper) to the local produce. Shopping daily keeps waste to a minimum and ingredients are fresh. The menu's big flavors are expressed through braises, sauces, salsas and garnishes from the world over. Don’t be surprised to find a roasted corn salsa sharing the plate with beurre blanc or a boneless Idaho rainbow trout stuffed with crab and wrapped in bacon. But be warned: While the menu may sound familiar, the chef plays fast and loose with his interpretation of some dishes such as the Osso buco made with turkey and garnished with chimichurri. The menu is a work in progress as new ingredients and new ideas emerge. Recent decor incorporates an artistic interpretation of a running stream on the floor where there used to be a row of booths, a spacious arrangement that allows for larger parties at table seating.
