5 Seasons Breweing

My restaurant connection, Leslie, showed me another interesting spot. 5 Seasons Brewing is at the intersection of Roswell Road and the perimeter, located in the Target shopping mall. It is an upscale brewpub. The bar has a sports flavor but the table seating is a little calmer.

We both really enjoyed our salads. I had the traditional wedge with bleu cheese and Leslie had a beet salad. Both were flavorful and well prepared.

To balance the rabbit food we ordered a margherita pizza. I have to say that it was successful as upscale bar food but not as a traditional pizza. As you can see, it has tomato chunks on it, but no tomato sauce. Strictly speaking, a margherita has sauce. The crust was nice and crisp but lacked the chewy texture that you get from a hard-core pizza dough and oven.

I'm the wrong person to ask about the beer, but Leslie reports that they are excellent and come in a wide variety. Five Seasons Prado on Urbanspoon

Ann Arbor MI: West End Grill

Trev, Jan, and Karem took me to a wonderful evening at West End Grill located, appropriately enough, in the West End. The restaurant still has its old tin ceiling festooned with stained glass chandeliers. I was too hungry to take a picture of our appetizers: crab cakes and bleu cheese tarts. The crab cakes had just a bit of heat to them, something you don't always find in a crab cake but which worked very well. The bleu cheese tarts lived up to their intriguing premise, rich and tangy. This is my caprese salad. The mozzarella, tomato, and basil were all outstanding. The balsamic vinegar had been very well aged, giving it a thick consistency. My main course was tuna, perfectly prepared to a medium well. The tuna left just enough room for a chocolate lava cake paired with decaf coffee. The cake was rich and moist. I kept scraping my plate to be sure I retrieved all of the chocolate.

Aurora CO: Cedar Creek Pub

Cedar Creek Pub is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado. My CU Denver friends and I adjourned there for good food and discussion. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was excellent: crispy, fluffy beer batter coating tender, moist cod. The fries were great, too.

The Lincoln Flyer's Club

My application to the Lincoln Flyer's Club was recently approved and my new membership came in very handy on a recent trip. The club is operated by the airport and is open to locals who fly 12 times per year. Membership gives you an access card that can get you into the room at any time. The room has a great view and is extremely comfortable. A TV provides a good set of cable channels. And coffee at 6 AM! My delayed flight required me to both wait for another flight and plan out the day. I was able to do so very graciously thanks to the club. Thanks, Lincoln!
