Still time to hit Colorado Springs Restaurant Week

We’re halfway through the fifth annual Colorado Springs Restaurant Week — a partnership between the Colorado Restaurant Association Pikes Peak Chapter, the Conventions & Visitors Bureau, and the Gazette — which means there are many opportunities to nosh on the 45 participating restaurant between now and Sunday.

So far, so good, Johnathan Shankland, general manager of The Famous (pictured), tells the Gazette today. “We’ve served about 200 Restaurant Week guests in the first five days. … It’s the best deal we run all year.”

With that in mind, here are just a few of the stops we at the Food Report would be sure to make, courtesy of the daily newspaper:
