Slow Food

Can’t make it to the Slow Food Convention? Here are six inspired restaurants that feature fresh from scratch and locally sourced ingredients.

A Grazing Life – Experience this truly authentic farm-to-table dinner at A Grazing Life. Each ticket sold directly feeds back into the Pikes Peak region food economy. The evening is a full experience that includes a farm tour and even live entertainment.

Colorado Craft Social – One of the area’s newest restaurants opened their doors earlier this year. This eatery honors its mission of using as much locally produced food as possible and rotates the menu each season to feature only the freshest ingredients. 

 

Garden of the Gods Market and Café – With freshly prepared market food, to made-from-scratch entrees, appetizers and bakery items, this is the perfect spot for your next brunch date.

 

Kings Chef – From opening its doors in 1956, this quirky castle has won a multitude of awards as one of the best diners in America and has locally sourced green chili salsa that can top off a breakfast fit for royalty. Due to popularity, it has a large, second downtown location. 

 

Pizzeria Rustica – With freshly made dough that incorporates Colorado whole wheat flour to daily-made mozzarella, Pizzeria Rustica supports local farmers year-round with a simple, authentic menu. 

Till Kitchen – From sourcing from farms that share a mission of sustainability, Till Kitchen prepares more than 70 items from scratch daily and even the building uses locally reclaimed beetle-kill pine for tabletops.
