    Tacos y Salsas - Join the counter culture on South Federal.

    My cell phone rang around one in the morning. For most people, this would be a harbinger of bad news -- kid in jail, someone in the hospital. For me, it almost always means work: a debriefing, a confession, an eleventh-hour emergency like a restauran...

    Next! - Sushi Den is a big fish in the Denver pond.

    One of the defining characteristics of a meal at Sushi Den (1487 South Pearl Street) has always been the wait. A half hour, an hour. On busy nights, the wait for dinner can take longer than the dinner itself. I've been forced to sit on my hands for a...

    Music Bar - You cant drink enough to make karoake sound good.

    "Is this the shithole?" our cabbie -- whose name I won't use because I'm pretty sure he's driving without the proper licensing -- asks as we pull into the parking lot of Music Bar (4586 Tennyson Street). We're packed four deep in the back seat (with ...

    October Surprise - Sputnik

    Every time I walk into Sputnik, I'm reminded of one of my favorite jokes. "Hey, have you heard that joke about hipsters?" "No, what is it?" "Well, of course, you haven't heard it!" It's beyond cliche to say that Sputnik is ground zero...

    Thai Basil - Suddenly, the big chains are looking better.

    I was out at Park Meadows, and I was hungry. Absolutely unwilling to eat anything from the food court (and already suffering from my mistake in ordering a grainy, chalky cafe au lait and a cookie that tasted like chocolate-covered balsa wood from the...

    Tin Star Cafe & Donuts

    The fuzz from the cottonwood trees was blowing so thick down the street it looked like a freak summer snow storm, but the rain wasn't far behind. I walked back down the boardwalk and crossed towards the water, looking for Laura, finding her sitting,...

    Ship Tavern - Argh! This chef should prepare to walk the plank.

    I love the Brown Palace. I've never spent a night there, never seen the inside of one of the rooms, never even gotten off the ground floor, but something about the place just moves me. Which is odd, because normally I don't care a whit for architectu...

    Ladies Night at the Brown Palace - Striking out at the Ship Tavern. Again.

    Ask me how I ended up at the Brown Palace four times in the past two weeks. Go ahead. Ask me. The answer? Because I am one lucky sonofabitch, that's how. Because somehow, out of the tattered, twitchy, gin-soaked, uneducated, ass-backward mess I...

    Horseshoe Lounge - The games people play.

    "Black eyes don't count," Mike tells me from three stools over -- by which he means, "Black eyes aren't a big deal." But from where I'm sitting, the golf-ball-sized swelling surrounding his bloodshot eyes and extending well onto his cheekbones sure l...

    Oceanaire Martini - Oceanaire Seafood Room

    I would have liked living in the 1930s. Big bands headed by Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Count Basie were in their heyday, playing at famous clubs like the Savoy and the Cotton Club. And it was the golde...

    Palace Arms - This restaurant is a royal treat.

    Everyone should have a restaurant that is saved for special occasions -- not for birthdays or anniversaries or celebrations of life's small victories, but for dinners that are themselves the occasion. For me, the Palace Arms is that place, a restaura...

    Hey, All You Haters

    The focus appears to be primarily about how much I suck, how crooked / deluded / psychotic / egotistical I am and how nothing I say can be trusted since my July 2004 kneecapping of The Kitchen in Boulder -- which was not a great restaurant then and c...

    Ling & Louies Asian Bar and Grill - Randy Schoch delivers Chinese treats with an American twist.

    To get a good meal in Northfield, first find yourself a child. If you've got a rug monkey of your own, fantastic. If not, acquire one. Far be it from me to suggest something as gauche as kidnapping, but the little creatures are often running rampa...

    Fish Story - Get fresh at Oceanaire.

    There was a time when I would have raged and mounted the barricades to do battle with any chain restaurant. Back when I was younger, dumber and somewhat more deluded than I am now, I made no distinction between behemoths like Applebee's and the Olive...

    Barricuda's - Their people make the difference.

    I have every intention of drinking on my first trip to Barricuda's (1078 Ogden Street), but it doesn't happen. I glance longingly at the beer taps -- Swithwicks? No. Guinness? Huh-uh -- but can't talk myself into a cold one. I make eyes at a Bloody M...

    Luciano's Pizza and Wings - A home where the Buffalo roam.

    Some people (and you know who you are) seem to think that I do not love the food being done at Luciano's Pizza and Wings. Yes, I have compared the pizzas there with the pizzas I remember from "Pizza Thursday" back in high school. Yes, I have stated t...

    Gennaro's

    There is only one true Italian restaurant -- back east, in that charmed province that runs along the coast, north into New England, south as far as Baltimore. Upstate, downstate, in the barrens and on the shore, just one restaurant with 10,000 name...

    Cora Fayes Cafe - The South rises again.

    The tablecloths at Cora Faye's Cafe -- heavy, almost like oilcloth but patterned with flowers -- are a little sticky. And so is the air. It's close and warm in the cluttered front dining room, the atmosphere rich with smells that are both food smells...

    The French Connection - Southern cooks know how to make something out of nothing -- like frogs' legs.

    Last year, I did a three-minute radio piece on my deep and abiding love for barbecue. I'd been asked to do it by Jay Allison, who was producing a show for NPR called This I Believe -- a resurrection of a project originally started by Edward R. Murrow...

    B.J.'s Port - Meet Welton Street's most charming shyster.

    Ms. B.J. mumbles an apology to no one in particular because the beer's not chilled enough, but Sean and I don't mind. It's already started to cool off outside, and we're at B.J.'s Port, 2801 Welton Street, to enjoy ourselves, not complain. So we pour...
