5th Sun is translated from the Spanish "quinto sol," which comes from the Mayan calendar and represents change for man and humanity. And opening this "Colorado-Mexican" restaurant just off Federal Boulevard was certainly a change for Trudy Gonzales, who'd never been in the restaurant business before and just decided to start her own place because people kept telling her how much they loved her food. She emphasizes healthy fare -- no fried food, and whole-grain tortillas are available on request -- but still manages to serve up traditional dishes, including mole and spicy green chile, in the spacious, sparsely decorated dining room. Still, the 5th Sun's menu isn't all about healthy takes on Mexican classics; you can also order baked-potato wedges and veggies and dip.
