    Salt-and-Pepper Shrimp

    Funny thing about the way this job goes sometimes: I often don't know exactly what I'm going to be writing about a restaurant until the minute I sit down and actually start writing about the restaurant. For example, this week's review of Spice China...

    Can We Talk?

    Last month, the Colorado Tourism Office offered a taste of this state to New Yorkers in the form of "Colorado High Altitude Concrete," made by the distinctly un-Coloradan Danny Meyer. Anyone hungry for more was referred to a website that touts our fi...

    More of the SAME

    SAME Caf at 2023 East Colfax Avenue is closed through May 9 for spring-cleaning - and the installation of some new kitchen equipment. When SAME reopens on May 10, co-owner (with wife Libby) Brad Birky will be devoting all his time to the restaurant,...

    Here is how you make a proper Peking duck. First, invent a time machine, go back to the mid-nineteenth century, grab yourself a plot of land in one of the booming cities of mainland China and enlist the help of a bricklayer to build you an oven. Th...

    To a Tea

    Dining in the dark and tea-infused dishes are two recent trends in restaurants; on Monday, May 5, I got to experience both at Solera Restaurant and Wine Bar (5410 East Colfax Avenue, 303-388-8429, www.solerarestaurant.com). Chef Christian "Goose" Sor...

    A Real Domestic Goddess

    While researching Georgetown weirdness, I learned that one of the places I wrote about in my April 24 Bite Me column -- the Silver Queen bar and restaurant--once had none other than Roseanne Barr on staff in the kitchen, either as a prep cook or a so...

    The Best Damn Crackhead Pickle Shop in Denver

    "Pickles! Pickles! Hey, man, you want one of these pickles? One dollar." I open my mouth to speak. "Uhhh . . ." I had just walked out of the cramped convenience store on the northeast corner of East Bruce Randolph Avenue and York Street, an inter...

    Baklava for More - If Adam and Eve could escape Eden, they'd eat at Ya Hala.

    I've been a fan of Ya Hala since it opened more than a year ago. I liked it when it was still just an ugly, stained cement bunker with the (often inaccurate) hours painted on its back; when I would drive by and see bums sprawled in the little half-al...

    A Noble Bird - Raising up the lowly chicken.

    While writing my review of Ya Hala (see page 47), I actually stopped halfway through and headed back to Colorado Boulevard to pick up a couple to-go orders of the unbelievably addictive baklava, because I only had a half-order at home and I knew that...

    Shenlong - Chi Bistro

    Chi is supposed to be part of everything that exists, a life force or spiritual energy, translated literally as "air" or "breath." And Chi Bistro has certainly breathed new life into the old Las Margaritas space on Old South Gaylord. The Asian-influe...

    The Melting Pot - Beware of fire.

    When it comes to cooking, I have just one rule: Never fry bacon naked. Other than that, I've always done whatever works -- but I might have to rethink things since my recent dinner at the Melting Pot, a fondue (translation: self-service) joint at 270...

    Pete's Kitchen - Pie in the sky.

    I have seen many things at Pete's Kitchen. I've witnessed fights and the first tentative, groping moments of new (and no doubt highly temporary) love affairs. I've eaten shoulder-to-shoulder with famous folk, sprung for dinner for bums and had a grou...

    A Fine Bromance

    Earlier this week, Jason Sheehan rhapsodized about his dinner at Le Bernardin. His musings did not escape attention on the East Coast, where New York magazine's food blog weighed in with this. All in all, quite a tasty read. But for the record: The...

    Quite a Ride

    When the stretch Hummer limo emblazoned with a Hornitos sign -- commandeered by a tequila-loving pal -- pulled up in front of my house, I knew I was in for an unusual evening, one that would take a few twists and turns, not unlike that limo trying ...

    Free French Underground
