Not much in walking distance, but some good options via a quick and cheap cab ride.. Brewery Bar III - New Mexican and Mexican Cuisine ( local chain) Hacineda Colorado recommendation is a good one - they call it "Mountain Mex" J Alexanders is a "small chain", but this location is really really good - great entree salads and steaks California Cafe - in the mall (Park Meadows) - not to be confused with California Pizza Kitchen! Eclectic cuisine Thai Basil - solid Thai restaurant, gorgeous decor. If you have some time on your hands in the evening, jump on the light rail and head downtown - lots of great dining there, including Rioja, Bistro Vendome, Jax Seafood and many others!
Will be in NOLA for one day for a business trip next week. Where is a good place to buy fresh crawfish? Need a place that will package it up to check as luggage. Last month I was in Baton Rouge and Tony's Seafood did a fine job with this request, and that night, all my Denver neighbors enjoyed 50 lbs of yummy mud-bugs! I will have a car and don't mind driving around a bit (just not all the way to Baton Rouge!).
