    Veggie Girl: Arada Ethiopian

    The first time I tried Ethiopian food, I was visiting my friend, Mat, in Montreal. We'd met the previous summer on a train headed to Berlin, and since we were both backpacking solo around Europe and trying to get to Prague, which had just suffered a flood, we found ourselves staying in the same ho ...

    Our Weekly Bread: Crostone at Parisi

    The sandwich: Boccaccio Crostone What's on it: Fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, pesto and tomato on grill-pressed bread Where to get it: Parisi (4401 Tennyson Street, 303-561-0234) How much: $7.99 I'm a horrible American cliché when it comes to all things Italian. I love the food, the wine, ... More >>

    The List: Team Bonanno

    My review of Bones -- Frank Bonanno's new restaurant at 701 Grant Street -- was a love letter, a total crush note from one shameless omnivore to another, to the kind of guy who would put bone marrow, ice cream, escargot and udon all on the same menu, from the kind of guy who would gladly ...

    The List: Dim sum in Denver

    I've always been surprised that a city like Denver can support more than one dim sum restaurant. San Francisco? Sure. New York? Absolutely. But dim sum is something special, and this Chinese brunch rarely seems to travel too far outside major metropolitan areas. Most of the time, a medium-sized ... More >>

    Bombay Bowl comes to the Tech Center

    The Denver Tech Center is full of movers and shakers who could probably use some sustenance to support them while they watch the market fall. Now they can find it, fast, at the Bombay Bowl. The fast-casual spot at 12023 East Arapahoe Road in Centennial opened on February 20. It's the brainchild of ... More >>

    Veggie Girl: O's Steak and Seafood

    Being a vegetarian sometimes means feeling like you're always a bridesmaid and never the bride. Sure, that gnocchi entree is delicious, but meat eaters who go to to Italian restaurants get to order both primi pasta dishes and secondi meat dishes for a full three- or four-course meal. I've always ... More >>

    The List: Real Colorado Italian

    Mark MangerLocanda del Borgo chef/owner Giancarlo Macchiarella.This week's review of Locanda del Borgo got me thinking about other spots in town where the view of Italy stops at the door -- which exist wholly as Colorado restaurants that just happen to serve Italian food. What follows is a list of ... More >>

Located at 241 East Colfax Avenue along a seedy strip, Taki's has been feeding the masses for over fifteen yearsand has been a mainstay stop for my husband and his friends since h ... More >>

    Veggie Girl: Taqueria Patzcuaro

    Fresh, salty chips, burning hot salsa and maybe the best vegetarian red chile in Denver -- these are just a few of the reasons that I frequent Taqueria Patzcuaro at 2616 West 32nd Avenue. An even bigger draw, though, is the chile relleno burrito, an absolute genius invention that starts with a tor ... More >>

    Follow up on Star Kitchen

    Okay, so I have a little more info now, courtesy of someone who talked with the chef (through translators) just the other day. Come to find that the chef who bailed out of Super Star is the new owner of Star Kitchen (along with his wife) -- the two of them long-time veterans of the restaur ... More >>

    The fighting Irish need to learn from the Italians

    My review of the Celtic Tavern (which will be posted here later today) started an interesting conversation among some of the more Hibernian-leaning staff at the Westword office, chewing over why Denver seems incapable of opening and maintaining a decent Irish bar. (RIP, Duffy's Shamrock.) This di ... More >>

    Veggie Girl: Parisi

    I love Italian food. So much, in fact, that I once spent a month in Florence taking Italian language classes -- that I then immediately put to the test in my Italian cooking classes. Not a word of English was spoken, and sure, there was some confusion (my book of Italian recipes, filled with my il ... More >>

    Doing Lunch at Brasserie Felix

    "You know what they call French food in Paris?" the chef asked, repeating his shtick. "What, chef?" I responded, my fingers sore and shredded from peeling hard-boiled eggs under tap water, my brain numbed from hours of prep. I'd heard the question before, as well as the answer, but that didn't mat ... More >>

    Izakaya Den joins the lunch bunch

    In the Best of Denver 2008, Jason Sheehan proclaimed Izakaya Den, the Japanese restaurant at 1518 South Pearl Street, as the Best New Restaurant last year. And now Izakaya's gone one better -- by adding weekend lunch, which could well be the most exotic brunch in town. The restaurant is now serving ... More >>

    Good times at Go Fish

        The space is simple, almost iconic Japantown nouvelle, with wood and steel and stone all polished to a high and gleaming gloss, mismatched walls in shades of lime and mustard, one of those trickling fountain things and abstract sculptures of fish on the walls done in shiny, candy-co ...
