Colorado Springs rehearsal dinner alternate

Going to a wedding in Colorado Springs this week. Since I'm not invited to the rehearsal dinner (!) , looking for alternate dinner plans for myself and niece (legal drinking age) . Good food, reasonably priced. I've been to Co Springs, but niece hasn't, so a nice place with a "local feel" would be great! Or just great food that shouldn't be missed?

    I like two places that fit your bill: 1. Phantom Canyon (downtown- @ 2 E. Pike's Peak, C/S 80903) Brewery and eatery--good pub food, fun atmosphere, always dependable. Salads-Pastas-Fish and Chips-Great bread pudding. 2. Pizzeria Rustica (Old Colorado city) @2527 W. Colorado, C/S 80904. Scrumptious artisan pizzas and salads, tasty wine list. Make their own cheese. Both places have patios. Pizzeria Rustica-need reservation.

      Thanks! Can't wait to try Phantom Ranch! And, I love bread pudding- of course! Hate to miss the homemade cheese at Pizzeria Rustica- might have to try there for lunch! I really appreciate your recommendations!
