Colorado Springs historic train depot opens first of three eateries

TJ Curry, executive chef at Mood Tapas Bar, has introduced an exciting new fall menu.

TJ Curry, executive chef at Mood Tapas Bar, 218 N. Tejon St., has hit a home run with his new fall menu.

His culinary talent shines and it’s no wonder. He has a degree from The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, Calif., did a stage (working without pay to gain culinary experience) at The French Laundry, has worked at Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen and was a sous chef at The Broadmoor.

His food has amazing flavors and his plating is stunningly artistic. You won’t want to miss the cauliflower steak ($12) with carrot, coconut and curry sauce, or the Rougie foie gras ($17) on French toast topped with pomegranate and hazelnut sauce. Pick your own journey through the menu or do a Chef’s Tasting (paired with wine): $100 for two, $195 for four or a premium tasting for four for $395. Details: 422-9712, moodtapasbar.com.
