Here's the 411 on the 303. Once upon a time, this was the area code for all of Colorado, not just the Mile High City and its environs. This is the intended reference at Walter's 303 Pizzeria and Publik House - even the one in Colorado Springs.

According to its website, there is no Walter, but the "k" in publik remains baffling.

Nonetheless, Walter's 303 is a family-friendly pizza and beer venue near Flying Horse in the northern part of the city.

Although we had to wait for a table, our server, Trent, did his best to put things right. His fun, outgoing demeanor meshed well with his enthusiasm for the pizza and place of employment. He described the crust as rich and buttery, saying it was unlike that found in other

<![CDATA[Dining review: Tap Traders known for beer, but food easily bests usual pub fare]]> http://gazette.com/dining-review-tap-traders-known-for-beer-but-food-easily-bests-usual-pub-fare/article/1615321?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/dining-review-tap-traders-known-for-beer-but-food-easily-bests-usual-pub-fare/article/1615321?custom_click=rss

As if the building that once housed a film studio and airplane hangar wasn't storied enough, the current occupant has a new tale to tell.

Tap Traders, a restaurant with 30 brews on tap, shares space with Tile Traders in the historic building owned by brothers Tim and Tom Black on North Nevada Avenue near Fillmore Street. The d├ęcor pays homage to the Alexander Film Co. and Alexander Aircraft, and it features some tilework from the Blacks' tile business next door. Work by local artists and bicycles hanging from the ceiling complete the design scheme.

The beer attracts people to Tap Traders, but don't overlook the food, because this isn't pub grub. The menu is diverse, fun and includes beer-pairing suggestions.

<![CDATA[Dining review: New eatery in Old Colorado City shines in so many ways]]> http://gazette.com/dining-review-new-eatery-in-old-colorado-city-shines-in-so-many-ways/article/1614847?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/dining-review-new-eatery-in-old-colorado-city-shines-in-so-many-ways/article/1614847?custom_click=rss

I know my role as a dining critic is to relay the good, the bad and the tasty about restaurants, yet I'm reluctant to share the deets about Sopra Antipasto & Wine Bar because I want to keep it all to myself - sort of.

Greedy as that is, I think it's justified. Sopra exceeds expectations. It offers well-prepared Italian small plates with impressive service in a stunning second-floor dining area above Paravicini's Italian Bistro in Old Colorado City.

The steep but wide stairwell belies what awaits: a well-appointed bar, brick walls adorned with a variety of artwork, hardwood floors and a doorway to a patio with south and west views. Despite the availability of heaters, it was too cold to consider feasting al fresco. That's for
