    Lola - Eat, drink and be merry.

    El Coyotito #3 (see review) is a real Mexican restaurant -- all tacos and menudo, sopas de mariscos and sad accordion music on the juke. Lola, on the other hand, is a very fake Mexican restaurant that, in being fake, has earned the freedom to be so m...

    Surprise! - Tables does a magic trick.

    At first, the most surprising thing about Tables is the lines. Big lines that sometimes reach to the door, stretch past it and spill onto the patio, lines that break and become clusters of neighbors squeezed too tightly around four-top cafe tables, g...

    Fair Game - The Taste of Colorado loses some regulars.

    They're already setting up the road signs, laying out the hurricane fence, rolling in the trailers and cordoning off huge swaths of Civic Center Park in anticipation of this year's Taste of Colorado. And yeah, yeah -- I know there'll be music and art...

    Noodles & Company - Newcastle goes well with mac and cheese.

    When was the last time you had one of those days that made you wish you'd never been born? You know the kind of day I'm talking about. You get up early because you can't be late for work. Despite waking up with a crick in your neck so bad that you ca...

    Cherry Tomato - The fruit of their labors.

    Tables (see review) is a great neighborhood restaurant -- one of those places you dream of finding when you move to a new neighborhood and remember long after leaving. But if Tables is the fantasy-come-almost-true, the Cherry Tomato is indicative of ...

    Booty Call - Late at night, Sketch looks awfully good.

    Lung cancer has never been sexier. I'm sitting on the patio at Sketch Food and Wine -- lounging on the patio, actually, which is surprising, because I'm just not built for lounging. Fellas tuned high like me don't lounge well. Twitchy men, men alw...

    Ground Zero - Bistro Vendome gets a new chef.

    Larimer Square is hot -- not just as a fine-dining center, but also as a source of great restaurant gossip. And even in these scorching summer months, when almost everyone in white tries to put their heads down and survive, there's been plenty of act...

    Mojito - Cuba Cuba

    Every time I walk into Cuba Cuba, I can't help but think of Matthew McConaughey. Naked. While I realize the Failure to Launch star's nude bongo incident was back in 1999, I know he would love the bongo tables in the tiny bar at Cuba Cuba. Actually, I...

    Charlie Browns Bar and Grill - Y'all come back, now, y'hear?

    When a guy wants to enjoy a productive relationship with a woman (meaning sex with some regularity), he sometimes has to do things he normally wouldn't do. Things like going to a shopping mall for a non-specific purpose, or watching a Lifetime movie ...

    Mels Restaurant and Bar - Another vintage year.

    Wine bars come and wine bars go. Like Sketch (see review, page 53), they often enter the scene with a splash -- but then, crippled by the double demands of being excellent in both the kitchen and the cellar, too often vanish almost as quickly. For ...

    Floating Belly Up - It's stink or swim at Islamorada.

    Halfway through my lunch at Islamorada Fish Company, it occurs to me that this is the worst meal I've had in five years. I've eaten a lot of breakfasts and lunches and dinners out in that time. And I've had a lot of bad ones. I've been disappointe...

    Come Fly With Me - Here's how to give visitors a true taste of Denver.

    Gummy Bear - 3 Kings Tavern

    When most people hear the start of "We Three Kings," they think of those Oriental kings bearing gifts from afar. Until recently, when I thought of three kings, they were Elvis, Martin Luther and Burger. But after a visit to 3 Kings Tavern, I now know...

    Roughing It - In the wilderness, even bad American beer works.

    Although I hate mass-market American "beer" -- aka the root of all evil -- there are times when drinking anything else would be wrong. And camping accounts for five of the top ten times when it's absolutely correct to drink this swill. The first time...

    The Kitchen - Looks aren't everything.

    I'm all for consistency in restaurants, and grouse loudly (and too long, some might say) about restaurants where the organic squab in styrofoam demi is delightful one night and too dry the next. The Kitchen does not have a problem with consistency. L...

    Beyond Borders - Aji blurs the lines between truth and fusion.

    I can still miss it something awful, but there are now times when I'm glad I'm no longer a chef. When it's 103 degrees on a Friday afternoon and I remember deep in my blood and bones the crushing, slaughtering heat of summers spent working the line, ...

    An Open Book - Jay Chadron swears Opal will soon have a sibling.

    Dons Club Tavern - The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Progress is not always a good thing. I liked it better when draft beer only came from a keg, not a bottle or can. I remember when telephones were heavy, two-piece objects that could inflict severe closed-head injuries, not miniature electronic earpie...

    Opal - This gem has lost its brilliance.

    What kills me about Opal is that it's not necessarily a bad restaurant; it's just so much less of a great restaurant than it once was. When I started this job four years ago -- when chef Duy Pham was making his first passing glances at genius in its ...
