    Saketini - Sushi Sasa

    Childless by Choice. I don't hate children. In fact, at times I find them as cute as puppies. I love my niece and nephew even when they are terrors, and I've developed relationships with some of my friends' children that are so enjoyable, I'd actuall...

    Darcys Bistro and Pub - Youre as young as you feel.

    We here at the Institute of Drinking Studies regard alcohol as a wonderful tool in the battle against age. With a few on board, it's easy to recall those days when you felt invincible and even your most moronic antics seemed funny to you and occasion...

    Fontana Sushi - Catch up on the classics.

    While the Chen brothers now have their own Fontana Sushi in Littleton (see review, page 57), former partner Kevin Lin continues to run the original Fontana Sushi in central Denver. The two Fontanas have similar menus -- both places offer tempura and ...

    Two for the Road - I brake for barbecue.

    We saw Hog Heaven Bar-B-Que coming from a distance. Laura and I had been out wandering -- ostensibly making a quick, up-and-back run over Guanella Pass to see the aspens changing like good Coloradans, to ooh and aah over the foliage along with severa...

    Almost Famous - The man, the legend, the ribs.

    I have always lived and worked under the precept that too much is never enough. Too much food, too much drink, too much fun. No one ever wants to hear the story about the guy who had just enough of something and then called it a night. This week, ...

    Jolly Rancher - McLoughlins Restaurant & Bar

    U-ROC. Every bartender should have a signature drink -- and I'm not talking about a "great" Cosmo. How about a little originality? And while we're at it, how about a cocktail that isn't so sweet it induces diabetes? I'm going to give the bartender at...

    Pour House Pub - Old home week

    When women get together after a long separation, their discussion seems to focus on who's pregnant, married, divorced, cheating and/or fat. Men discuss who's seducing their secretaries, how much money they're making, the latest "sweet" deal they clos...

    L&L Hawaiian Barbecue - Lei it on!

    I had barbecue on the brain this week, and stopped by a spot that nearly killed me on my first visit just from the sheer volume of food a ten-spot can buy. L&L Hawaiian Barbecue has been around in its current incarnation since 1976 -- a Big Island ma...

    Come to Papas - Los Cabos II stirs up Peru's culinary history.

    They asked if I spoke Spanish when I first walked into Los Cabos II, the beautiful Peruvian restaurant-slash-social club hidden behind the ugly facade at 15th and Champa streets. And I do, sort of. Mostly kitchen Spanish, which -- if you cut out all ...

    Foreign Service - Open-and-shut cases.

    Steakhouses, burger joints, places serving safe, recognizably Betty Crocker, ham-and-pineapple-slices American grub close all the time and for all sorts of reasons, so just imagine how tough it must be for a place like Los Cabos II (see review) to st...

    Basil Mojito - Panzano

    Careful, dude, it's creeper weed. A football player named Mike always showed up to our high school English class with about a dozen assorted candy bars. He'd start out looking a little squinty-eyed, then gradually become stoned out of his gourd as th...

    Soiled Dove - Hometown heroes

    Denver narrowly missed a cataclysmic disaster last week. "I almost walked out of my place without my pants," JP confessed as he clambered into the cab. We were headed toward LoDo and Above the Dove (1949 Market Street), the rooftop bar above the Soil...

    La Praviana - Comfort, Salvadoran style

    Denver's ethnic eateries sneak up on you. La Praviana (first reviewed in Westword on May 20, 1999) is a stand-alone joint facing Broadway that in a previous life was a breakfast bar called the Omelet House. Then Hector and Maritza Gil took over, and ...

    Shine On - Cafe Star has real star power.

    "Lucky Star." "Shining Star!" "The Star Chamber." "Enough," I said. "Star Quality!" I held up a hand. "That just sucks. Okay, who's got that key lime thing?" The decimated remains of a key lime tart were passed my way, and I pressed...

    To Market, To Market - Head for Whole Foods.

    Normally I avoid opening events like the PR plague they are. Soft openings, hard openings, grand openings, invitation-only VIP openings -- all really just code words for the same thing: amateur night. While I understand the necessity of openings and ...

    Black Pearl Cosmo - Black Pearl

    Black Pearl is the newest gem on Old South Pearl, a street full of jewels. The restaurant is beautiful, highly stylized, sleek and modern, with Zen-like enhancements -- the wall of backlit bottles in the bar, for example, and the patio with a communi...

    Wyman's #5 - Don't forget to call.

    When the planets align, Institute members answer that primal call to go out and get overserved -- no matter what else may be going on, and no matter who drops the organizational ball. On this particular evening, it was JP and me -- but our group some...

    Trattoria Stella - Cafe Star's sibling

    Cafe Star (see review) was brought to us by the same people who opened Trattoria Stella six years ago. And while there's not anything wrong with Stella (in fact, there's a lot I really like about it), if I were told to pick two places on absolute opp...

    The Next Big Thing - At Pho Fusion, one good turn deserves another.

    When I reach Tom Bird, owner of Pho Fusion, the first thing he does is apologize. He's sorry that the place doesn't look the way he'd like it to. It's kind of empty, not yet finished to his satisfaction. "I know, you walk in and you can see that i...

    Bite Me - All I Need

    We are a highly mobile people these days. Not many of us are now where we were yesterday (or yestermonth or yesteryear), and we feel this displacement in weird ways. For example, I'm always gripped by a wicked wave of homesickness in the middle of Oc...
