Tourism, restaurant groups create online dining guide

Summer tourism season is nearly here, and the Colorado Tourism Office and Colorado Restaurant Association have teamed up to make sure visitors can enjoy the local cuisine.

From fresh palisade peaches to tender bison, the two groups have launched an online, comprehensive dining guide at www.COLORADO.com.

“WE have chefs across the state who are passionate about what they serve up, from traditional Southwestern food to farm-to-table cuisine and everything in between,” said Al White, director of the state tourism office. “Colorado has a foodie scene all its own.”

The two groups collaborated to bring more restaurants to the site and allow more functionality in how people search for places to eat. Visitors to the web site can search for restaurants by city name, restaurant name, price, meal time, restaurant type or cuisine type. They can make reservations online as well.

The new guide includes “hot deals’ and information about Colorado produce, farmers’ markets and a Colorado cop calendar. In the future, the site will include social media tools and sample menus.

To access the dining guide, go to www.COLORADO.com and click on “eat.”

  1. This looks like a good site for figuring out where to eat and such. I also found the site coloradospringsnightout to be a good site for figuring out what to do on a weekend. I have used it a couple of times and I liked it because it is specifically for Colorado Springs. No searching through the entire state to find a restaurant.
