Damn the economy -- full speed ahead!
The Vistas at Park Meadows Mall gains another restaurant today when White Chocolate Grill opens at 4 p.m. Although the name seems to promise a fried-ice-cream-like experience, White Chocolate's menu actually includes a full range of American dishes, from fresh seafood flown in daily to burgers to parmesan-crusted filet. But right at the top of the roster, there's Dessert for Two -- put there to remind diners to save room for such items as the White Chocolate brownie that earned the restaurant its name.
Restaurateur Bobby Fitzgerald created the White Chocolate concept four years ago, dubbing it a "flight to quality"; so far, White Chocolate outposts have landed in Arizona, Nevada, Illinois and Colorado. The Park Meadows address will be serving from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily; for more information on this newest location, click here.
White Chocolate joins Mikuni Sushi, a link in the California-based chain that debuted two weeks ago in the Vistas.The Counter (custom-built burgers), Brio and Cru: A Wine Bar (which also has a location in Larimer Square) all opened there this summer; still to come is a second local La Sandia address (the first is in Stapleton).
