We were vacationing in Colorado Springs and did a google maps search for available restaurants nearby. Gertrude's menu on their website looked very good, and right up our alley for what we were hungry for.
My wife ordered the Warm Apple Salad (Grilled Granny Smith apples, gorgonzola cheese & walnuts served on mixed greens with a warm port wine vinaigrette) and I had the Grilled Salmon Salad (Wild Coho salmon, tomatoes, onions, carrots, oranges, roasted red peppers & almonds mixed greens). We topped it off with the warm flourless "Chocolate Oblivion" cake for dessert.
Wow...we agreed that it was the best meal we had in a very long time. The chef/owner obviously takes pride in his craft. The quality of every ingredient was superb, the presentation and taste...wonderful. Even every lettuce leaf was full, robust, crisp...and the salmon, grilled perfectly. But, the Chocolate Oblivion was incredible; warm, melt-in-your-mouth good. You could taste the real butter used in the flourless cake and sauce.
The restaurant is small, but the servers were very responsive to all our special requests.
