RISTRAS Restaurant & Cantina, Trinidad, Colorado
Tourists, art and film aficionados have discovered Trinidad Colorado, a budding art colony as well as an outdoor recreational mecca this place also hosts the Trindiefest International Film Festival and the zany Artocade. Trinidad has something for everybody, even a foodie like me. A vacation is not complete without good food and I just discover a place called Ristra’s Restaurant & Cantina.
If you’re cruising museums, art galleries or had a day of water skiing in Trinidad lake you are probably starving to death, in dire need of sustenance and a little libation to top off the day. There are many fun and delicious places to wine and dine at in Trinidad Colorado and Ristra’s is a good place to start. If you enjoy Southwest Cuisine you will be in your element. After all, they make their tortillas fresh. Fact is, everything is fresh homemade daily at Ristra’s. I had the Carne Asada and was very pleased with my meal.
I found the wait staff to be very attentive and courteous. The meals were promptly served piping hot and it was a pleasurable eating experience in general. Location, location, location Ristra’s is located off the beaten path but no to far. There is ample parking and its only a stones throw from the center of town if you care to walk from the galleries and museums. Ristra’s also makes a convenient getaway where you can imbibe in a cocktail while plotting your next round of adventure in this historically significant region.
And yes, they do have ‘Happy Hour’ – 2 to 6 p.m………..or would that be 4 happy hour’s?
In any event you’ll be happy any hour you are at Ristra’s Restaurant & Cantina.
I was happy and I’m a crusty old buzzard eh.
Regardless of what form of recreation you are in Southern Colorado for, Ristra’s is a good place to catch a bite or a refreshing drink while giving your feet a break and a reprieve from the sun. I think the place is pretty spiffy and wish the owners the best of luck on this venture.
