Pueblo, Colorado is well known for our unique casual dining. Our home-grown Pueblo Chiles spice up everything from traditional American dishes to authentic Mexican cuisine, but, did you know we are also home to a host of fine dining restaurants as well? That’s right! Pueblo has a variety of fine dining options including the historic Cicerelli’s Park East Restaurant and Steakhouse on Goodnight Avenue.
While the Park East Building is historic and rich with Pueblo history, the Ciccarelli family brings a new twist to classic dishes. One such item on the Park East menu is the Blue Crab & Spinach fondue, a plate that combines grilled roasted garlic and Spanish Piparras. Inside the Pueblo Historic District on South Union Avenue you will find La Forchetta da Massi, an upscale Italian Restaurant specializing in Northern Italian cuisine.
A guest favorite, the Squid Ink Pasta, pairs well with a Corn Pie dessert. Massi, head chef and owner, crafts incredible Italian dishes that oftentimes have a bit of a spicy flair—a tribute to his wife who hails from Cuba. For fine dining with a view, check out The Place Eatery along the Pueblo Riverwalk; patio seating opens up to an outdoor atmosphere unlike any other.
While there, make sure to order one of the numerous gelato flavors, made in-house and fresh every day. Also in the historic downtown district is DC’S on B Street, an eclectic bistro known for creative daily specials. Pueblo’s newest addition is 21 Steak. This latest upscale Riverwalk chophouse will feature a unique atmosphere centered on the 1921 Flood, a historic event in Pueblo.
So, when planning your next trip to Pueblo, save your green chili slopper for lunch and try one of our many fine-dining restaurants for an unforgettable Southern Colorado experience!
