There’s a casual little restaurant called Umai Teriyaki that’s fast becoming a favorite of Montrose locals. It’s been open less than a year, and operators Chris and Grace Jung see a steady stream of shoppers, workers, fitness enthusiasts, moms, dads and kids walk through their doors and gobble up their fresh, healthy food. It’s the kind of food you can feel good about eating every day, if you’re so inclined. The place is clean, the prices are decent, and the service is as fast as made-to-order food can be. If I were to open a restaurant, I’d do it the way Chris and Grace have — offer a limited menu of appealing items that you know you prepare well.

Go ahead and toss the shells on the floor, that's where they belong at this laid-back, friendly, down-home eatery.

Cherie Mercer Twohy It was a sad day, a few years back, when Gelsinger's Meats closed its doors in Montrose. A local butcher is becoming as rare as I like my steak, and a good one is even rarer than that. Gelsinger's was a treasure, and I'm not the only one who mourned the passing of that era. But they say (whomever they are) that when a door closes, another one opens, and what opened in the former Gelsinger location is Zeke's Smokehouse, a barbecue joint with a neighborhood vibe.
