Looking for Grand Junction CO Birthday meal for mom

MarietteB Jan 19, 2012 02:54 PM

Mom doesn't drink and isn't terribly adventurous. But she loves to eat out. I wondered if there was a place with a view, a historic place or just good eats.

My husband is visiting mom in February and would like to have some celebrations. She will eat asian, loves Mexican, loves Italian, and is from the Mid West originally.

Can travel - Montrose, Rifle, Fruita are places I know, but I'm sure there are other places that might work.

Thanks for any help!

    We've lived in Junction almost 10 years and our favorite here, far and away, is Il Bistro Italiano.

    They used to advertise themselves as Northern Italian, but it's a pretty eclectic mix these days. Their menu offers everything from middle-of-the-road (but tasty) Italian to bordering on adventurous Mediterranean. The perfect spot for a quiet celebration. And if it's not too cold in February, you can take a stroll downtown afterwards.

    These days, I almost always order whatever the special is without question. I've never been disappointed with it.
