    Mouthing Off

    Into the mouths of babes: You'd be surprised at how many places around here welcome your kids with a smile. While Joe's Crab Shack (see above review) is one of the better ones, my kids have other favorites--spots that not only greet them with open ar...

    Hook, Line and Singer

    I'll admit it--I take my kids to McDonald's. Hey, I'm just like any other parent: Sometimes I simply want to feed them fast without messing up the kitchen. And while I'd rather treat the kids to some place where they--and I--can appreciate good ...

    Think Big

    Big Q, little q, what begins with Q? How about some grown-up answers to the childhood chant? Quaint, quirky, quality--they all describe the exquisite Q's. Qualms? Chef/owner John Platt admits to several. The restaurant's sous chef when it op...

    What's cooking? Beginning with this week's Cafe, when I review a restaurant where the chef turns out particularly noteworthy food, as John Platt does at Q's, I'll try to include a recipe (as long as the chef is willing to share it). And if I can'...

    Missed Saigon

    After the fall of Saigon in 1975, the Communists officially renamed Vietnam's largest city Ho Chi Minh City--but that didn't prevent millions of Vietnamese people from continuing to call it Saigon. The natives were so persistent, in fact, that offici...

    Critic's choice: Restaurant roulette continues as Bill St. John, the food guru for Microsoft's Denver Sidewalk (www.denver.sidewalk.com), gets a second home at 5280, the almost-monthly magazine that's had a hole to fill since perpetually cheerful Cha...

    This spud's for you: What's a good bacon-and-eggs breakfast without hash browns? The word "hash" means to chop into small pieces (not grate), and although it's time-consuming, hash browns are better when they're hand-hashed (as they are at Sunnyside ...

    The Great Awakening

    The guy at the table behind me had the waitress right where he wanted her. "Ha! You're not going to believe this," he said to his two buddies. "I asked that girl if this O.J. was fresh-squeezed, and she says it is. The hell it is! I been coming h...

    Now Playing

    Sixteenth Street has come a long way, baby, since the Rialto Theater opened in 1916. Today the street is a pedestrian mall, where souvenir shops outnumber other retail options, national-chain eateries outgun locally owned restaurants (see "Mall ...

    Rymer reason: Last week Gary Rymer won his case in Denver County Court's small claims division against Budapest Bistro (1585 South Pearl Street) and its owners, Rudi and Anna Hellvig. In June, Rymer had filed suit against the Hellvigs, claiming they'...

    Mall Flounders

    When Denver Pavilions opens early next year, there won't be any room on the 16th Street Mall for sloppy local restaurants--if there's room for locals at all. A half-dozen blocks away from the Pavilions site between Tremont Place and Welton Stree...

    No Stone Unturned

    Like the stones in a tennis bracelet, little ethnic eateries stud strip malls throughout suburbia. Some are genuine treasures, some are fakes--but most are flawed. Innocuously named--New Jade Garden Dragon, Happy Saigon Palace Bowlarama--and sporting...

    Personal bests: This town isn't exactly overflowing with places that cook up Southern-style eats--see the review of Hugo's above for one nice option--so it hurts when a good one goes down. And you can say goodbye to So-Fully Kosha Res-runt, which had...

    Southern Comfort

    Striking out: So if Denver's such a major-league city, why was much of LoDo closed up tighter than a drum by 1 a.m. after the All-Star Game? As the clock struck twelve, we left Above the Dove, the roof of the Soiled Dove (1949 Market Street), which n...

    To Havana and Have Not

    In this town, Cuban food is rarer than a humid day. That's why, on Thursday nights, I make a break for El Azteca Grill & Cantina. Sergio Hernandez, a Cuban immigrant, and his family have already proven themselves proficient with Mexican food--in...
