Editor's note: Fields writes a monthly review of vegan options at local restaurants.

Colorado Spring is proving to be a town where a vegan can grab a beer with friends while easily enjoying a decent plant-based option or two. Trinity Brewing Co. is no exception; in fact, it may have set the bar for brewhouse vegan dining.

Though Trinity's menu has changed several times over the past couple of years, one thing remains constant: a wide range of vegan and vegetarian cuisine. And speaking of the menu, they make it pretty easy: vegetarian options are marked with a "v" made out of two carrots and the "v" found in the ears of a smiling bunny signify the vegan options. While there are far more vegetarian options, most can

<![CDATA[Dining review: Fast, fresh and friendly at Colorado Springs Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant]]> By Robin Intemann robin.intemann@gazette.com - http://gazette.com/dining-review-fast-fresh-and-friendly-at-colorado-springs-neapolitan-style-pizza-restaurant/article/1549795?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/dining-review-fast-fresh-and-friendly-at-colorado-springs-neapolitan-style-pizza-restaurant/article/1549795?custom_click=rss

Thanks to sports, especially basketball and football, I'd come to think of seconds as fragments of time that create the illusion of lasting indefinitely. Duca's Neapolitan Pizza has made me rethink how quickly they really do pass.

It takes longer to put on the fresh toppings than it does for these pizzas to bake. From our table, I could see how quickly the process moved, so I tried timing a few before finally asking one of the employees about the speedy method. Turns out my timing was off by 30 seconds. This could have had calamitous results had I been overseeing Duca's broad, squat-capsule-shaped, brightly colored, wood-fired oven. This family-run pizza establishment needs only 90 seconds to bake its thin pies. The oven, by the

<![CDATA[Dining review: Colorado Springs sushi restaurant offers unique names, flavor combos]]> By Robin Intemann robin.intemann@gazette.com - http://gazette.com/dining-review-colorado-springs-sushi-restaurant-offers-unique-names-flavor-combos/article/1549393?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/dining-review-colorado-springs-sushi-restaurant-offers-unique-names-flavor-combos/article/1549393?custom_click=rss

With apologies to Shakespeare, a sushi roll by any other name is not always a good one.

Fortunately, they are at Sushi O Sushi. The components may be similar to other places, but each sushi chef incorporates his own spin on the Japanese specialty. This is evident in the unusually named rolls and the combination of ingredients. At this strip mall location on the city's southwest side of town, this includes the David Roll ($12), with escolar (often called butterfish), cucumber and Krab, topped with albacore and cherry tomato and served with ponzu, a tart, citrus-based sauce. David is a nice name, but somehow it doesn't quite fit the bold flavors.
