Keep Your New Year's Resolutions at Encore
By January 6, 2010 10:35 AM
With the new year comes the inevitable resolutions: eat less (without sacrificing quality, of course) and save money. At Encore Restaurant
, the sleek, modern eatery located next to the Tattered Cover Book Store
on Colfax, it's easy to do both.
Over the weekend, a friend and I shared a flatbread pizza called the Fig N' Pig. The crunchy, thin-crust pie arrives with a thin layer of sweet fig jam and topped with salty strips of prosciutto, tangy bits of Gorgonzola, and a generous sprinkling of deep-green baby arugula. Although the pizza is light, the balance of flavors and textures make it wholly satisfying.
: Dine during happy hour (3 to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.-close, Monday through Saturday), and the pizza costs $7.50 (instead of $14); a glass of Mas de la Dame RosÃ© from Provence is only $5.
