Ciao Mambo’s first two years in Hayden has them off to a great start, and it's that lively Mambo experience that keeps bringing happy guests back for more. The scratch menu combined with subtle lighting, vibrant art and Dean Martin singing in the background makes for a perfect setting for families, friends, business associates and a little amore’ rendezvous.

At Pilgrim’s Deli, resident chef Dane Rice and his prodigious staff are, as Dane explains, providing customers with “food choices that prevent them from having to worry about diabetes in 10 years.” With their expanding grill menu, rotating deli selections and scrumptious soup and salad bar, Dane and the Deli staff are keeping the creativity and local vibe resonating.
