Brunch with a View
Runway Grill – Sunday a la carte brunch at Jeffco Airport, now renamed Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. The restaurant is located on the second floor overlooking the landing strips with sweeping views of the mountains. Clouds obscured the long-range view during our visit but I can imagine how great it would be on a clear day. Changing cloud and light patterns made for interesting viewing even on a less than perfect day. Helicopters, prop planes and corporate jets land and take off as you dine.
With 11:00 am reservations our party could order from both the breakfast and lunch menus. We ran the gamut from eggs Benedict and waffles to fish and chips and the Red Baron Reuben. The Piper Club looked large enough to feed an entire flight crew.
Of course, there’s an aviation theme with model planes hanging from the ceiling. Flight fans will see how many they can identify. There’s a flight deck on balmy days.
Prices are extremely reasonable, the highest price dinner item is the 747 Steak for $14.99 – 10-oz rib eye, potato, vegetables, roll and dinner salad. No charge for the view.
Runway Grill, 11705 Airport Way, Suite 200, Broomfield, CO, 720-887-1004. Open Tuesday – Saturday for breakfast, lunch and dinner; Sunday and Monday for breakfast and lunch. Full bar.
