This establishment, which in the past has served as a brothel as well as an artist studio, has finally found its place as a combination art gallery and eatery. The decor is a cross between utilitarian urban and American southwest, reflecting the aesthetic of those who display their work without losing its regional flavor. The menu, however, has a definite southwestern lean, with classic dishes like burritos, enchiladas and specialties such as the Tomatillo Shrimp and the Carne Adovada.
Keep your eyes open for the rich and famous; this downtown locale is popular with visiting celebrities. Elegant decor and superb service equate into a wow-this-is-great dining experience. Steak dominates the menu and the portions are so large that it has been rumored that some diners have asked for a power saw instead of a steak knife. The bar offers an outstanding selection of wines and martinis. Opens on Sundays at 5pm.
This rustic crowd-pleaser has history to thank for its name. Located in the building that was the original stage stop for the town, the restaurant still exhibits plenty of Victorian charm. The menu offers a wide assortment of American and international dishes. Many items border on the fringe of normal fare including the slow-roasted buffalo being the perfect example. If you are somewhat less adventurous, stick with the prime rib or one of the many seafood, poultry, vegetarian or pasta choices.
This little cafe has cultivated a loyal clientele for years, thanks to a warm and inviting dining room.
