    Bite Me - Dosa Reality

    While I enjoyed Little India (see review), eating there made me think about the best Indian place I'd tried in Denver: Maruti Narayan's. Because of Narayan's location at 12200 East Cornell Avenue in Aurora -- way back in a forgotten corner of the mul...

    Drink of the Week - Casa Bloody Tableside

    During college, we'd go to a notorious party town to blow off steam after a long stretch of school in a notoriously boring town. We'd all shack up at some condo where, after the three beds and two couches were taken, the safest spots to sleep were un...

    Drunk of the Week - Baja Cantina

    When I came to Colorado ten years ago and immediately started railing against the typical Coloradan's lack of driving skill ("It's snowing/raining -- we'd better slow down to half the speed limit!"), I was informed that Coloradans (or whatever you ca...

    Isle Be Seeing You - Caribbean Cuisine Plus is a plus for Denver's dining scene.

    I stopped by on a whim, at about five-thirty in the afternoon, drawn in by both the action and the tickle on my internal culinary Geiger counter. Regardless of what the clock said, I wanted lunch, since I'd slept really late and already had two dinne...

    Bite Me - Seasons Greetings

    It's been two years and change since I walked out of my last kitchen. That last one, in Albuquerque, wasn't even a good kitchen, but I remember it with an irrational fondness because it was the last one, and the last of anything is always special. I ...

    Drink of the Week - Blue Footed Booby

    Sparrows are considered rather common, but common is not the word you would use to describe the new restaurant that bears the bird's name. An enthusiastic foursome is trying to make Sparrow fly in the space that over the past two decades has housed T...

    Drunk of the Week - Kona Grill

    Many things cause guys to regress and act half their ages. Women, for example, can turn even accomplished hounds into virtual teenagers who will do anything -- including change their hairstyle, clothing and job -- to impress them. When a guy gets "si...

    The Simple Life - Soup -- and everything else -- is on at Cafe Jordano.

    It's the simplest thing, and it's almost universally overlooked in the fast-paced, big-business kitchens of the world. There it's a throwaway, a gimme course, with the duty of making it generally given over to the lowest guy on the galley totem pole....

    Bite Me - Pasta Imperfect

    It was a deeply and profoundly abysmal lasagna that I wouldn't feed to an enemy. A few layers of limp pasta swimming in an acid bath of red sauce that would've embarrassed Chef Boyardee, stuffed with rank ricotta and topped with some desiccated pars...

    Drink of the Week - Dragon Boat

    Serial bartender: It's a scary concept. Okay, not nearly as frightening as Ted Bundy or some other serial types, but Oran Feild is almost as well known in this state. He could even go by one name, like Cher or Madonna. So when I entered Monarck, the ...

    Drunk of the Week - Minturn Saloon

    We here at the Institute of Drinking Studies are nothing if not conscientious. We advocate strict rules that govern the planning and execution of a night out, guaranteeing a successful recovery sometime the following week. For example, you must caref...

    Coming Together - Food and atmosphere unite for a perfect match at Mezcal.

    We'd both woken up mad, the wife and I. Rolled out of bed pissed off, brushed our teeth pissed off, then gotten dressed pissed off, each under our own cloud of bad feelings and faulty neurochemistry. Wisely, we tried to avoid each other, to keep our ...

    Bite Me - Sean and Heard

    Sean Yontz has been at Mezcal (see review) from the beginning. He wrote the menu, tinkered with the recipes and staffed the kitchen. These days, he's in the house three, sometimes four nights a week. Thing is, he doesn't really work at Mezcal. He ...

    Drink of the Week - Incredible Hulk

    "You've never had Hpnotiq? Hpno's the shit, dog!" said Dave Herrera, a man recognized more for his music knowledge than for his cocktail choices. "Drink Hpno and you're gonna be bangin' with Dre by the end of the night." Hpnotiq, also known as "blue ...

    Drunk of the Week - Penthouse Club

    This is my favorite time of year. By early September, the temperature's cooling off, football is dominating more and more of SportsCenter and every other sportscast, and vicious campaign advertisements start showing up on TV. With the close president...

    Slice of Heaven - Still rightly Famous after all these years.

    It was a knee-jerk New Yorker's reflex that led me to Famous Pizza. Make that Famous Pizza #1. "The Original Famous Pizza," as spelled out on the front window and the menu. Opened by Gus Mavrocefalos in 1974, this joint has been operating out of its ...

    Bite Me - War and Pizza

    I've never understood the draw of gummy Chicago deep-dish, and I loathe those smart-ass nouveau California cracker-crust abominations. I'll choke down a cornmeal-dusted New York thinny if no other options are available, though, and have been known to...

    Drink of the Week - Citrus Mint Martini

    There are two types of people -- those who love the Palm, and those who don't understand why other people love the Palm. I was a member of the latter group when I lived in Manhattan, and craggy, ancient salesmen would take me to the original Palm on ...

    Drunk of the Week - Mao Asian Bistro

    Life is full of unending battles. Hitting your ideal weight and body habitus; making the perfect Bloody Mary; sending a politician to Washington who displays a range of emotions greater than an ear of corn's and is more concerned with doing the right...

    So Pho, So Good - Pho 79 is my tome on the range.

    What's that?" asks the young Vietnamese guy sitting at the table across from mine. He brings his hands together, palms touching, then opens them -- miming the book I have in one hand. I raise it up off the table and show him the cover -- it's my w...
