Townsquare Media Northern Colorado is highlighting different local restaurants that are recovering and reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic with a NoCo Restaurant Spotlight series.

Simmer has given south Fort Collins foodies their own spot since opening at the start of 2017.

The chef-driven menu and diverse bar offerings helps the 2519 S. Shields St. eatery live up to its motto of "Drink, Dine & Unwind."

The establishment is run by someone who is no stranger to the restaurant world — owner Steve Lauer has owned more than 60 restaurants in his career, including numerous establishments throughout Northern Colorado.

Lauer called in for a Q&A interview:
