In celebration of a couple of spring birthdays, we wanted to go somewhere unique for a birthday dinner. Since moving to Colorado, The Fort has been on our “to do” list, so a birthday celebration was a great reason to visit. The Fort, located in Morrison, has been open since 1963 and was contructed as a replica of Bent’s Fort, a Colorado fur trade fort built in 1833. The Fort restaurant is an actual adobe fort built among the Colorado red rocks. To make The Fort experience even more authentic, the menu is designed around food eaten by pioneers traveling the Sante Fe trail, Native American cuisines, and meals served to traders at Bent’s Fort. Their specialties include elk, quail, and of course buffalo. Our first visit to The Fort went beyond our expectations….great food, excellent service, and an Old West atmosphere.
If you can’t make it to The Fort soon, then look here for their famous recipes!
