Historical Roots with a Delicious New Identity

Track Ten - An Urban Kitchen

Track Ten - An Urban Kitchen is located downtown in the historic old train depot. Nestled behind The Antlers Hotel, it's one of two restaurants that reside in the 140-year-old building. Owned by Charles and Amy Ochs since 1971, they wanted to honor and preserve the historic building, while updating the infrastructure to create a space for people to enjoy once again.

The Philosophy

General manager and Colorado Springs native, Ron Osbourn, described the restaurant’s farm-to-table philosophy as an intimate, yet relaxed dining experience. Many of the menu’s ingredients are locally sourced including meat from local ranches. 

“We take a Farm-to-Table approach with our menu and like to think of ourselves as having a relaxed fine-dining environment,” Osbourn said. 

Head Chef Michael Caudill uses this philosophy as inspiration for the unique and Colorado-focused cuisine. 

The Menu 

The menu is modified and rotated two to three times a year to align with the seasons and to take advantage of the seasonal produce.  

When asked about their signature dishes, Osbourn said, “Our ribeye steak is one of our most popular dishes and is served with local Microvora mushroom ragu. In addition, our Skuna Bay salmon is received very well and is served with broccolini, rice pilaf and chili corn miso sauce.”  

While Track Ten offers a kid menu and considers itself to be family friendly, it’s a great date-night or special occasion destination. 

The Bar

Track Ten offers a full bar with a nicely curated wine list and local beer from Goat Patch Brewing. They also have a cocktail menu with drinks inspired by the historic train depot. 

Their signature cocktail, The Centennial State, is similar to an old-fashioned, but with a twist. They add a smoked glass as a nod to the coal fired engines that once graced Track Ten’s train platforms.

Additional Offerings

Track Ten also regularly creates special holiday menus and hosts public events such as live music. To learn more or to book a private event, head to the website below and click on the events tab. Finally, if you enjoy dining al fresco, try the outdoor dining patio in the warmer months.
