The Bite

High on Highland

Tante Louise (4900 East Colfax Avenue) has earmarked four charities as beneficiaries of a year-long thirtieth-anniversary celebration that owner Corky Douglass has dubbed "Merci Denver." The activities kick off with a French country picnic and wine tasting on July 12, where new executive chef Marlo Hix will get a chance to strut her stuff. (A former sous chef at both Tante Louise and the late Normandy Restaurant, Hix also served as chef de cuisine at Grouse Mountain Grill in Vail; most recently, she was executive sous chef at the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe.)

In addition to doing good works, Douglass wants to commemorate good eats: This year, he also plans to issue a cookbook chronicling the evolution of Tante Louise's cuisine.

The Savoy Restaurant in Berthoud (535 3rd Street) isn't quite as venerable as Tante Louise. And when owners Chantal and Jean Martini reopen their eatery on July 12 after a well-deserved break, they'll have only two days to prepare for their tenth-anniversary Bastille Day celebration -- a traditional four-star French dinner -- on Sunday, July 14. Mon Dieu!
