    Homecoming - Again the Masters of their doman.

    Talk about a blast from the past, eh?" I've got Mel Master on the phone, and he's talking about his own October surprise: the sudden signing of a contract for the space at 1120 East Sixth Avenue, which currently houses Piscos and originally was the h...

    007 on Speed - Cap City Tavern

    My mother thinks I waste too much time hanging out in bars, but she doesn't realize how much knowledge I gain by chatting up bartenders and resident barflies. At Cap City Tavern, for instance, I learned that if you put salt on your cocktail napkin, i...

    Lime XS - Give blood, drink margs.

    There's nothing like drinking when you're already at a disadvantage. We recently hit Lime XS (730 East Sixth Avenue), the new, smaller iteration of Lime in Larimer Square, and after her first margarita, the saintly wife of the Redneck Liaison to the ...

    Taste of Philly - Pulling up cheesesteaks.

    The guys behind the counter got my order wrong three times -- but from past experience eating at the Taste of Philly on Colorado Boulevard in recent months, I knew that three attempts was about average for getting the correct order in the correct bag...

    Going to Dumpling Town - One good reason to go to Szechuan Chinese Restaurant is all you need.

    Location, location, location, my ass. For decades, Szechuan Chinese Restaurant has been doing business in one of the worst imaginable locations in all of restaurantdom, holding down a chunky, L-shaped space folded into the elbow of a nearly inacce...

    Green Acres - WaterCourse is a growing concern.

    Everyone's favorite punk-rock, vegetarian, earth-friendly tempeh joint, WaterCourse Foods, is leaving its longtime home at 206 East 13th Avenue for greener pastures. But don't get your dreadlocks in a twist. This is a good thing. Not only is Water...

    Blueberry Arnold Palmer - Wymans No. 5

    The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers. Even that quote from Shakespeare wasn't enough to drown out the long-winded lawyers (is that redundant?) sitting near me at the bar at Wyman's No. 5, rehashing the case they had tried and won that da...

    Hillcrest Grill - Rogue agents at work.

    We've all had those days when we just really want -- and borderline physically need -- a beer. This doesn't necessarily mean that it's been a bad day -- although the beer-wanting feeling is very common after a day when your co-workers and/or boss mak...

    New Ocean City Restaurant - A real sea change.

    Four years ago, I had one of the greatest, strangest, most affecting meals of my life at Ocean City. It was during the Chinese lunar festival, and the party went on for hours with more courses than I can remember. I ate cold pig's-ear salad, whole ab...

    American Idyll - Steuben's is dedicated to regional specialties -- and that's both good and bad.

    As an achievement in design, Steuben's is unparalleled. No hackneyed, cliched or sardonic architectural detail was spared in the construction of this physical love letter to a time not too long gone when wood-veneer paneling and vinyl-covered steel-t...

    Road Warriors - The owners of Steuben's have region to believe.

    What are your first three food and drink related visits when you head to your childhood hometown? What do you order? Fried Clams from Kelly's? Supreme Sauce from Raynor's? A slice from Joe's? A take out order of a green-chili cheeseburger from The Ow...

    Chinaco Blanco Tequila - Aztec Sol

    As I drove up, I was blown away by the recent changes along 32nd Avenue east of Zuni Street. While I'd been aware of all the gentrification further west, I couldn't believe that this stretch -- which a politically correct person would have described ...

    Pepsi Center - Who would wait in line for the Who?

    Waiting in line for tickets was one of the most worthwhile pastimes of my underage drinking years. But great seats (and drunks) weren't the only objective: Camping out overnight was a social event. The culmination of this activity came in 1987, when ...

    Frasca Food and Wine - One of the country's best.

    While Steuben's (see review) has that whole American regional thing going, scores of other restaurants focus on foods of even more precise regional specificity. Corn Belt picnic cuisine? Done. Japanese mountain peasant food and North Vietnamese party...

    Elvis Lives - Vietnam House is a rock star.

    As we pull into the parking lot, I see the sign for live entertainment, Saturdays from nine until one in the morning. I find live music in a restaurant distracting, and say so as if after the years we've spent together -- nearly all of them described...

    Good Morning, America - From Aurora to Boulder and Back

    As I left Vietnam House (see review), I was briefly sexually assaulted in the parking lot by a small pockmarked fellow who -- overcome by the beat pounding out into the cool night air -- grabbed me and rubbed up against my junk. Stunned and a little ...

    Shot of Shillelagh - Irish Snug

    Bring out the Irish Spring! As my date and I sat down at the bar at the Irish Snug, a guy next to me gave me a dirty look. "I'm sorry, was this seat taken?" I asked, and he mumbled something inaudible and walked to the door. That's when his repulsive...

    Morrison Inn - On the rocks at Red Rocks.

    Mee Yee Lin - Dim sum, lose some.

    I miss Mee Yee Lin -- the old Mee Yee Lin on West Alameda Avenue, the little dim sum place where I first ate crispy fried intestine, where I could linger over a late lunch in a homey American cafe as envisioned by a transplanted Chinese family. But t...

    Grill of My Dreams - Buenos Aires is an oasis of magical eating.

    After dark, this stretch of 22nd Street can be rough. The sidewalks are unlit, every open space is a parking lot, and the storefronts are shattered, boarded up. On the walls, the tags run together like tribal voodoo -- less artistic than furtive, a s...
