    I heard a rumor that El Azteca was opening a new restaurant in Somerset. Could be hearsay though...

    Somerset? It's only been there for 10 years now. And yes, that is El Azteca moving in on the west side of Stange.

    * The Cafe has good food and is moderately priced.

    * Black Market pizza is more expensive than your typical college town pissa but the quality is better.

    * Brewers the last time I was there had appetizers only which were good but pricey. More of an upscale place than your typical Ames bar.

    I would caution takign a date to Black market pizza, they don't seat you and therefore have to find a seat. It's a small place and there aren't that tables in there. But the pizza is good.

    Cafe is definitely date material. They have some good food there and the tables feel pretty intimate.
