As you may have gathered, we have out-of-state guests staying with us this week. We’re all having a great time, and I love it when we have visitors so that we have a good excuse to check out new venues in our own hometown.
When Claire and I were at swimming lessons a few weeks ago, I was chatting with one of the other mothers. She mentioned a local restaurant that I’d never been to overlooking the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (formerly Jeffco Airport).
It sounded like the perfect place to try when my inlaws were in town. I knew we would all like to see the planes, and when she mentioned that each table was decorated with a glass enclosed navigator’s map, I knew it would be the perfect place to take someone like PaPa, who was retired Air Force.
This informal and impromptu restaurant reviewer said that she has taken her kids there on numerous occasions, and that Fridays seem to be a good day to catch a lot of air traffic. My hubby was going to have that particular Friday off, so a lunch date would be perfect!
So, I put it on our schedule of events, and yesterday, we went there for lunch.
It was awesome! The food was fabulous and eating our lunch while watching the planes land and take off was an incredible treat. From our vantage point, we could see the gorgeous snowcapped mountains, and Downtown was clear. What a beautiful day!
If you’re a local, you should check out The Runway Grill! There is a map on their website, but if you need more “localized” directions, drop me a line, and I can explain where it is. And, if you’re one of our regular out-of-town visitors, remind us about this place when you come to visit, and we’ll take you there.
We can’t wait to go back!
