Bird & Jim is a relatively new restaurant in Estes Park. An employee at a competing restaurant recommended it. As we found out, one of the principals worked with the referring individual for years, and the new restaurant is not a direct competitor, menu wise.
B & J seems to be very popular. It is so popular there is not enough parking on a weeknight. One can only imagine what it is like on the weekend. Be that as it may, it is a good choice, with drop-in seating in the bar area and reservations in the main dining area. The menu looks delicious, and there are some exciting dining options. One is bar type seating looking into the kitchen. Guests are served directly from the kitchen and can watch some of the action.
On this evening, we were somewhat tired of fancy food and chose burgers. I had beef, and my wife had a veggie. They were both excellent if a bit pricey, and sides were up to par. Service was a bit ragged, but not horrible. We would definitely give it another shot the next time we're in town. I would love to try one of the fancier dishes to see how they handle it.
