Hey hey! I’m checking in today to tell you all about our dinner at Ristorante Del Lago located in Colorado Springs. We usually don’t eat at such fancy places as the the Broadmoor Hotel so it was fun to get dressed up and do something a little different.
If you left the table to use the restroom or something, someone would come by your seat and fold your napkin into a fancy shape while you were gone. I was a little startled when a girl came over and just smiled and folded Everett’s napkin into a fan and just walked away lol. The wine list was fancy and I just stuck to what I know I like, prosecco. The next course was the pasta course. I had clams in a white sauce with spaghetti. So, so good.
Kind of a fun story: I was adopted as a baby and my parents met the adoption agency representative at the Broadmoor Hotel to pick me up! My parents took me back when I was ten years old to show me around. This room has been renovated, but is close to exactly where they held me for the first time.
It was a lovely night and definitely worth the drive from Denver. I can’t imagine eating fancy meals like that all the time though. The couple behind us was telling their waiter how they always get a particular bottle of wine at a different restaurant because it such a good deal at $1,300! Is it magic wine?! Yeah, I just can’t imagine.
Tell me about the fanciest meal you’ve ever eaten!
