Frisco, Colorado … A Culinary Paradise Part Three!
Posted by: admin September 17th, 2014
In continuing with a couple of our previous blog posts, enter part three of a few of our favorite places to enjoy a quality meal while staying at our Frisco bed & breakfast. Now, do remember, each morning the Frisco Lodge offers “made to order” breakfasts, so this list comprises some of the more popular Frisco, Colorado lunch and dinner establishments to enjoy before and/or after our complimentary afternoon wine and hors d’ouvres selections.
Frisco’s newest family friendly restaurant, Greco’s Pastaria offers pizza, pasta, pub specials and much more from its convenient Main Street location just a short walking distance from our Frisco bed & breakfast. Described as a new hybrid in Italian dining experience, Greco’s offers fresh pastas with made from scratch sauces accompanied by quality proteins including Colorado beef and sausage, free range chicken and wild caught salmon and shrimp. Add to that a secret family recipe red sauce in its lasagna and hand tossed pizzas, a casual dining room, a sidewalk attached patio and a bar equipped with several TVs for event watching, and Greco’s is definitely Frisco’s newest hot spot.
If you like to live on the spicy side of life, The Lost Cajun is Frisco’s token Cajun spot. Owned and operated by Raymond Griffin, a Louisianan native, The Lost Cajun’s old style family restaurant offers a down-home atmosphere coupled with authentic Cajun food that includes the likes of gumbo and Cajun classics, an array of seafood selections and New Orleans style Beignets. This is not just another pizza, burger or sandwich shop … The Lost Cajun prides itself on its southern hospitality that has re-created a true Cajun dining experience.
For one of the more unique Frisco dining experiences, try out Foote’s Rest. Again, just a short walk from our Frisco bed & breakfast, the Foote’s Rest offers both a Sweet Shoppe and Eatery. The Sweet Shoppe comes equipped with a wide variety of candy, fudge, homemade ice cream and donuts, while the Eatery (adjacent to the Sweet Shoppe) offers outdoor dining with fire pits, an adult beverage bar, full service kitchen, fish taco stand, horseshoes, bean bag toss game and live music. Originally the 1870s-era assay office for the Town of Frisco, the location was turned into “Foote’s Rest” in 1941 as a place where locals went for mail, milk, news and other sundries. Today, one can still see some of the original grocery store trappings and other artifacts from an era gone by.
While Greco’s Pastaria, The Lost Cajun and Foote’s Rest are all widely different in their offerings, they have one thing in common … they are all easily accessible within walking distance from our Frisco bed & breakfast. At your “Home Away From Home” at the Frisco Lodge, there really is no reason to venture too far from your new home at the Frisco Lodge – Frisco’s premier bed & breakfast establishment.
