Foodography: Comida is the new taco the town in Longmont

Lori Midson
If Rayme Rossello was worried that Comida Cantina, her new brick-and-mortar that just opened in the Prospect development in Longmont, wouldn't be a hit in the ritzy 'hood, the gazillion bodies who packed the joint last weekend should alleviate any concerns.

Rossello, who launched her hot-pink Comida food truck in Boulder in 2010 before getting her hands on a turnkey restaurant a few months ago, played host to a standing-room-only restaurant and bar overflowing with taco junkies and tequila zealots heaping praise on the buzzy cantina. And judging from what I ate -- enough tacos, tostadas and gorditas to stuff an elephant -- Rossello's kitchen crew is equipped with the experience and talent to continue the streak. Herewith, a collection of photos to whet your appetite.
