A visit to The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs isn’t complete until we pull up a chair at The Hotel Bar. Choose from indoor seating on overstuffed leather couches or chairs. Or step outside near the lake for seating around the stone fireplace. The Hotel Bar is one of several Broadmoor casual dining experiences; casual but upscale and the friendly staff will make you feel right at ease.
The Hotel Bar offers the best seat in the house – a view of Cheyenne Lake. The entrance to The Hotel Bar is a tribute to the history at The Broadmoor.
Murals, photographs and original letters illustrate hotel founder Spencer Penrose and the Hundred Million Dollar Hotel Clubs’ 1920 visit to Colorado Springs.
Several TVs allow guests to watch their favorite sports channel, such as our latest visit when the Hotel Bar was filled with patrons enjoying the Super Bowl game. Locals tend to gather here too. Read More »
In a few days Hollywood royalty will descend upon the Kodak Theatre* for the 84th Annual Academy Awards. They’ll arrive in their limos, hit the red carpet for a few interviews and some chatter about what they’re wearing, and then get whisked up the grand staircase of the Hollywood & Highland complex for their entrance into the theater.
But here’s what I think should happen: Right before they head through those double doors, I’m hoping they’ll veer to the left, and take a few minutes to wander down the seemingly-deserted walkway in their impossibly high heels. Because at the end of that path they’ll find Komida, and some of the best tacos they’ve ever eaten. And they’ll be glad they did, since it’ll be hours before they’ll be able to stuff their faces on hors d’oeuvres at the Governor’s Ball.
Imagine, if you will, a restaurant that serves only the best of hangover remedies. And by hangover remedy, I mean mac’n'cheese. Yummy, creamy, cheesy mac’n'cheese.
Imagine a place that is tucked away in the midst of the big, bad city–New York, perhaps–and would likely be missed by the casual observer.
It’s a small restaurant with only a few tables. All orders are made fresh to order. You can grab your favorite iteration of mac’n'cheese, made with only the freshest, local ingredients, to go or hope for a seat to open up.
You can munch on hot, creamy noodles mixed with lobster, ground beef, duck or veggies. Any way you want to play it, really. It’s all about you.
It sounds like a dream come true, no? Yet, this is no fantasy. This is the wondrousness of Macbar, a small restaurant cum food stall on Prince Street.
