North of Denver, at the site of what was once the runways for Denver’s Stapleton Airport is a new shopping district called Northfield. Developed like all the new "malls" this outdoor shopping area is really a mall turned inside out. The stores line the boulevard with sidewalks, trees and lovely landscaping, just like an old town square. At Northfield you will find all the upscale stores and restaurants needed to fill an hour or two or all day.
Tonight we decided to try the Islamorada Restaurant located next to the incredible Bass Pro Store. Oh my, what a place this is! The restaurant is known for its seafood. The impressive 13,000 gallon fish tank will entertain everyone from tots to Gramps. The fish are mesmerizing and wonderful to watch. The food, well let’s just say it was excellent. Vali & I shared the Wasabi Tuna Steak, encrusted in seasame seeds and cooked to perfection. Hubby’s Seafood Pasta was full of shrimp and oh so yummy. We all loved the fresh baked bread for starters and since we shared our dinner, we were entitled to share desert too! A sizzling hot fresh from the oven chocolate cookie with ice cream and a Key Lime Pie in its own cup. All were so good in fact I forget to take a photo until…well desert arrived! Sorry, next time I promise not to forget!
If you plan to make the trip, take time to visit the Bass Pro Store. I don’t care if you never set a foot outside in the great outdoors, you will enjoy this store. They have even bigger live fish, and a whole parade of animals offering photographic opportunities for everyone.
