Q: I'm looking for a nice restaurant with good food outside the Denver metro area, somewhere on the south or southwest side of town.

A: Try Sage Southwestern Grill (699 West Littleton Boulevard, Littleton, 303-797-2181), a small but charming spot that features innovative Southwestern fare, or Luigi's Bent Noodle (8130 South University Boulevard, Littleton, 303-694-9357), which makes no bones about its lack of authenticity but offers excellent American takes on Italian food.

I also like the Melting Pot (2707 West Main Street, Littleton, 303-794-5666) for fondue in a whimsical library setting, and the Great Northern Tavern and Brewery (8101 East Belleview Avenue, 303-770-4741) for upscale New American dishes in a classy, train-themed setting.
