Lunch at Lady Nomada’s

Last week we got together with Julia and Bruce and had a great afternoon strolling around through Old Town Arvada. The Scarecrow Festival was taking place and everything was decorated with scarecrows and festive fall colors. As always, we had a fun time and ate to much. I will share all our adventures with you in due time, but first I am going to share our lunch at Lady Nomada’s.

As we were strolling around town, we discovered this colorful outside patio, and I was really hoping that was where we were going to stop for lunch, especially since it was a beautiful, bright, sunny fall day. And lo and behold, that is where we chose to dine. It was the patio for Lady Nomada’s.

Lady Nomada’s is a Baja-Rado Taqueria & Bar. It’s where Baja California meets Colorado. Both distinct personalities are proudly displayed throughout the restaurant too. It was a fun place to go with delicious food. “There’s never a dull moment when she’s around. Lady loves good food and comes alive at night when the music fills the air and drinks around without a care”.

Lady Nomada was created by Gastamo Group, the team behind some of Denver’s most celebrated restaurants including Park Burger, Perdida, Homegrown Tap & Dough, and Birdcall. Inspired by the Baja and driven by the mountains, each dish is designed to invoke the fresh spray of the coast and freshness from the sun. Have a bite, or several”. We definitely enjoyed several bites. We all walked away very full and satisfied.

We dined al fresco, out on the street side patio.

We started things off right with a bowl of chips that came with 2 kinds of salsa, a regular spicy tomato salsa and a tangy, garlicky tomatillo salsa. Both were delicious and the chips were gone in an instant. I guess we were hungrier than we realized. Bruce and I washed our chips down with some cool refreshing margaritas as well.

Then it was time for the main event – lunch. We all ordered something different and everything was very colorful and muy delicioso!

Julia feasted on flautas.

Bruce chose the calamari salad.

Larry went for the barbacoa tacos.

And I dined on the “double-decker” shrimp tacos.

We all enjoyed a perfect lunch out on the patio. It was a beautifully, warm fall day shard with good friends and good food. After lunch we strolled around and took in all the sights. We had no agenda and just went were the colorful paths took us.

Lady Nomada’s is located at 7519 Grandview Avenue in Arvada, Colorado. It is most definitely a fun place to dine and it is full of personality. It is a unique, one-of-a-kind restaurant that is a perfect place to go when looking for something fun and casual. It a great place to go when you just want to let your hair down, unwind and relax. πŸ™‚

  1. Bruce and I had a great time! I am so glad we could get together. We really needed a break from packing up and moving out of the house. Keep your fingers crossed for us that the closing for the house sale goes without a hitch tomorrow.
