This restaurant in Laramie is now closed. We were not impressed when we visited it early on, so no surprise to us. I think if they had offered more options, including more vegan options, larger portions, and lower prices they could have made it.

We've been hearing for months from friends about how great LnF is, but that it's expensive. After finally going in, there's clearly no defined sense of "expensive." Sure, you might save $10 by going to Chili's instead, but that'd be a foolish mistake to make....More

Description
Lost and Found Restaurant searches old cookbooks for recipes to feature for 3-5 days. Then it is gone. Thus our name. This requires research and the daily menu is not large, but we give a variety to satisfy most appetites. The food is made from scratch, so it is not quick dining. The cocktails are specifically designed to be enjoyed before dinner at a leisurely pace as dinner is being prepared. The drinks are broken into several categories, with information researched about every one. Most are technical cocktails and some date back to the late 1800's. The most popular is the Shanghai Buck, a precursor to the Moscow Mule created back in the mid 1930's. Whether dining or drinking, Lost and Found Restaurant wants the customer to enjoy tastes that have not completely been forgotten. There is a "70's-80's Cocktail Hour" on the upstairs floor, Thursday and Friday 5-7 pm, where the music is from that time and the cocktails are $1.75.
