Sharing Eats at Fuel


September 10 2009, 10:24 AM
For the last year and a half, lunch at Fuel Cafe in Taxi has satisfied our every dining whim with creative and unexpected eats in a vibrant, urban environment. But dinner at Fuel---served Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m.---is even better than lunch. Go with a group and sample your way through Bob Blair's ever-changing menu. When I dined with four friends, we ordered everything---four small plates, four entrées, and three desserts---placed them in the middle of the table, and dove in. The food is a lot like the restaurant itself: casual, with crunchy goat cheese, almond, and mustard crostini; artsy, with colorful preparations like tender striped bass served with bright red cherry tomatoes, deep green arugula, and shiny black olives; and ideal for people who crave comfort after a hard day but don't mind a bit of dazzle, which you'll get with any dessert on Fuel's menu. Tip: Plan ahead. Fuel's seating is limited, with 12 tables inside and 12 outside. 3455 Ringsby Court, #105, 303- 296-4642
