    23 hrs ago | Colorado Springs Independent

Echoing the restaurant's first location in San Diego, sumptuous caramel-colored leather half-booths, dipping and bulging at the seams, sit below walls of warmly lit wood slats; barbed wire subtly accents the ceiling over tables covered in thick white cloths preset with glittering glassware; and deep, dark leather chairs cover a cowhide in front of a glass floor-to-ceiling wine cellar.
