solar roast on Main street – wake up with a rich, dark coffee
After a day of traveling to Pueblo, Restaurant Fifteen Twentyone is the perfect place to relax with a martini. Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce President Rod Slyhoff recommends starting a meal at Restaurant Fifteen Twentyone with mussels steamed in garlic and white wine broth, followed with a tomato salad with baby spinach, olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. “For the entrée, I’d go with the grilled
salmon served with corn ragout and roasted red onion relish. It’s incredible.” After dinner enjoy an evening at one of Pueblo’s many nightspots. The next morning, Rod suggests a visit to his favorite coffee shop – Solar Roast on Main Street – to wake up with a rich, dark coffee.

“You can’t come to Pueblo without getting a plate of Mexican food, and one of the places I always rave about is MexiDeli,” he says. “They have good chips and salsa and cold Mexican beer while you look over the menu, and their house specialty is the taco Azteca. It’s a flat taco shell layered with frijoles and your choice of meat, topped with sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, tomato and cheese, and then smothered with green chili. It’s the best.” “For my dinner, I like to order off the Tapas menu although they have a full dinner menu as well. I enjoy the garlic spicy shrimp followed by some prosciuttowrapped asparagus, then a steak brochette topped with blue cheese,” he says. “Plus, I can never pass up the calamari at Park East. I also enjoy a glass of Toasted Head merlot to accompany my meal.” The next day, Rod suggests lunch at Pueblo’s iconic Pass Key. “Try an Italian sausage sandwich they call the Pass Key Special,” he says. “The owners buy their sausage from the same market they’ve used for decades, then mix in their own secret spices before grilling it to perfection.” Next time you’re in town, give Rod a call; he might join you for a meal. imagesPueblo.com
