With only three letters, two of them vowels, Uwe was the word I mispronounced most at the long-established German restaurant of the same name in Colorado Springs.

I knew I couldn't go to Uwe's without the friend who's been telling me about it for years. He's my German food authority, and Uwe's is his go-to place.

The first lesson he taught me is the importance of having a reservation. It might be difficult to believe judging from the nondescript exterior in a small strip mall in the Knob Hill neighborhood, but Uwe's German Restaurant packs them in. If you show up without a reservation, you might need a backup plan.

The popularity is easily explained: well-prepared food and exceptionally friendly service.

<![CDATA[Dining review: Exceptional Colorado Springs restaurant doesn't feel like a chain]]> http://gazette.com/dining-review-exceptional-colorado-springs-restaurant-doesnt-feel-like-a-chain/article/1620525?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/dining-review-exceptional-colorado-springs-restaurant-doesnt-feel-like-a-chain/article/1620525?custom_click=rss

Chain restaurants are like parking spaces: They're plentiful but not always the best. This isn't the case with Bonefish Grill, a prime spot in a competitive lot.

Bonefish is lively and popular but not overwhelming. The clientele was a notable mix of couples young and old, along with groups of various sizes. Families with young children were not well-represented, but it was a Saturday night.

The menu, as expected, features an array of seafood, and it was difficult to make a choice. I'd heard about the Bang Bang shrimp ($10.90). Crispy fried shrimp is coated with a creamy Sriracha and chili sauce so there is a distinct spice element, but a good one that makes the taste buds go pop-pop.

<![CDATA[Dining review: Small pizzeria in Colorado Springs the kind people dream of having in neighborhood]]> http://gazette.com/dining-review-small-pizzeria-in-colorado-springs-the-kind-people-dream-of-having-in-neighborhood/article/1620078?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/dining-review-small-pizzeria-in-colorado-springs-the-kind-people-dream-of-having-in-neighborhood/article/1620078?custom_click=rss

The distinct aroma in Slice 420 Pizza and Crepes has no connection to cannabis but everything to do with garlic.

This is a small, busy pizza parlor. Its apparent popularity is easily traced to house-made dough, marinara sauce, cheeses and salad dressings, among other items.

Slice 420 is the kind of pizzeria that people dream of having in their neighborhood. The folks in and around Old Colorado City are the lucky beneficiaries.

The dough, which makes a crispy, flavorful crust, highlights the pizza slices, whole pies, calzones and pizza rolls. The latter were new to me. These have ingredients such as sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, chicken Parmesan or Buffalo chicken. A variety of cheeses, sauces and herbs enhance the
