Colorado Springs has new eatery to examine at boutique lodge downtown

Jay Gust, president and govt chef at Ascent Cafe Group, has opened Homa Café & Bar in Kinship Landing, 415 S. Nevada Ave.

Other Ascent Dining places are Pizzeria Rustica and Tapateria. Brian Blasnek, who was executive chef at Pizzeria Rustica, has moved to Homa as the government chef.

The urban stylish Homa dominates the ground floor of the boutique resort. The examine-in desk for hotel company is at one aspect of the rectangular-shaped bar in the center of the dining room. Further than the bar is a large, plant-filled Greenhaus — an location for occasions. More cozy seating is in nooks all-around the bar for eating.

The all-day menu attributes domestically sourced foodstuff, which are creatively fashioned into breakfast plates, salad bowls, hand pies (palm-sizing, flaky crusted nibbles), sandwiches and desserts.

“Nothing is priced higher than $15,” Gust reported.

The Amiko ($15) sandwich was awesome made with The Sourdough Boulangerie bread toasted with plenty of flavorful butter to provide as the host for tumble-apart braised miso limited ribs. There had been bits of yummy umami-flavored mushrooms mixed with the meat.

“They’re shitake mushrooms,” Gust mentioned. “They are rehydrated, sliced and soaked in a soy sauce combination. Then dehydrated once again and cooked.”

It is just one particular illustration of the treatment and detail remaining taken by the chefs at the new eatery. Hrs are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday as a result of Wednesday and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday by Saturday. Facts: 245-0046,
