"It didn't make sense, at first, to put a restaurant in the middle of nowhere," says Bob Blair, the chef/owner of Fuel Cafe, which he opened in the middle of nowhere in early 2008. But how could he have known that his restaurant would make this spot in River North, by the Taxi project, a real destination? People now flock to Fuel for breakfast, lunch and dinner; for pastries and coffees and sandwiches and salads; for the Mediterranean-inspired dinners, from small plates to big, meatier entrees; or just to sit outside on the expansive patio, a true urban oasis, and watch the Platte River -- and the traffic -- go by.
Bob Blair, the man behind the five-year-old Fuel Cafe in Taxi, finally unveiled Refuel on Monday. The long-awaited fast-casual concept -- just across from Fuel in the Drive development -- serves made-... More »

Fuel Cafe chef-owner Bob Blair is fervent on the topic of sustainability, and discussions about the importance of organic sourcing, local ingredients and where food comes from are frequent topics of conversation at his eclectic restaurant in the Taxi project. But Blair also practices what he preaches, turning out a menu of creative, seasonal and delicious fare that comes from purveyors he has carefully contemplated. If you're concerned about the same issues, you can rest easy at Fuel knowing... More »
Need to see a man about a horse? How about seeing that man about some artwork? You can find paintings by Tracy Weil, co-creator of the River North Arts District, on cultured walls around town. But you'll never find a better reason to linger in a privy than at Fuel, where a pair of pieces by Weil -- whose own gallery/studio Weilworks is just a few blocks away -- grace the walls. "Makes for a captive and contemplative audience," the artist says. More »
The dishes I have tired have been cold and under seasoned. After waiting 30 minutes for my lunch the other day I had to ask where it was, then, 10 minutes later a waiter dropped my dish on my table. It was cold. When I asked for condiments to make an incredibly dry pulled port sandwich palatable, I was denied any condiments because it appears I insulted the owner by even asking and told that “you don’t put that on our sandwiches”. They may be much more accommodating to people that make “Fuel” a destination, but if you work in the area, expect the rudest most pretentious service I have received in Denver.
