I had dinner at Jonesy's EatBar last night; delicious! It took me a while to fall asleep because I was so full from all the delicious food that was racing through my mind. I had a hard time keep my fingers away from the Truffle fries, though the PEI mussels rival any that you may find at a fine French establishment. On special for the Biennial of the Americas celebration currently (I guess it is ending today!) going on in Denver I ordered the Puerco Pibil Tortita. These sliders of pulled pork, jalapeno, and onion didn't spend much time on my plate. My favorite dessert was the cherry shortcake bread pudding followed closely by the dulce de leche. Those two desserts could in fact make up a meal entirely by themselves! Perhaps most importantly, Jonesy's is a big support of the local beverage industry. Over 30 Colorado micobrews make up the beer list. Colorado wines also are well represented on the wine list too! The watermelon jolly rancher-like 2009 Infinite Monkey Theorem Rose whetted my appetite while the 2008 Bookcliff Vineyards Cabernet Franc Reserve accompanied the rest of the meal. To describe Jonesy's in a word: GO!
