    Native Truths

    If the test of a good ethnic restaurant is the number of customers from the cuisine's alleged country of origin, then the Armadillo fails miserably. After eating twice at the lower-lower downtown location of this homegrown mini-chain--the Armadi...

    Family Values

    Uncle Sam's wants you--and, believe it or not, your kids. For that alone, Denver families should stand up and cheer. At most area restaurants, children are about as welcome as anthrax--and twice as deadly to the diners around them. But not only d...

    Mouthing Off

    To the Manor born: Sure, Uncle Sam's (reviewed above) specializes in American food--but is there anything more red-white-and-blue than a really bad-for-you burger? A recent 1 a.m. run to My Brother's Bar (2376 15th Street) to quell a post-booze cravi...

    The Nam of the Game

    If you've survived the fall of Saigon and fled your native country, how frightening can it be to start a restaurant? Very, it turns out. "It has been scary," says Van Vo, who opened Tay Do seven months ago. "I admit that I know very little a...

    Noodlin' around: People always think that the best part of my job is getting to stuff my face. They're wrong--that's the second-best part of my job. The best part is letting people know about out-of-the-way, unheard-of eateries that serve excellent f...

    Talk lobster: David Francavilla, owner of the three Chowda House Light House restaurants (see review above), thought he might attract some attention with the recent lobster giveaway at his newest location, at 158 Fillmore Place. But the fundraiser ne...

    So Stew Me

    Cherry Creek isn't exactly overflowing with cheap eats. Then again, a restaurant can't charge five bucks for an entree when it's paying top dollar for rent. That's why David Francavilla passed up Cherry Creek when he opened a second location of h...

    Wienie roast: The current controversy engulfing Governor Roy Romer hasn't distracted him from all of his duties. The outcome of a friendly Super Bowl wager between Wisconsin governor and loyal cheesehead Tommy Thompson and Romer is even now being con...

    Too Many Cooks

    When Jason and Vanessa Helfrich leased a hard-luck spot on Seventh Avenue for their JV's The Cork, they faced the enormous challenge of turning the odd space, with its stifling, wall-separated dining areas and problematic lighting, into a workable, a...

    United Nations

    It isn't every day that you find a restaurant billing itself as "a Peruvian seafood and Chinese cuisine salsa and karaoke nightclub." But that's exactly how Francesca Reese describes her latest Los Cabos II, the third in a series of Los Cabos ea...

    Mex and match: The most delicious sight of the week was the solo diner at the Mexico City Lounge (2115 Larimer Street) last Thursday tucking into a plate of greasy, cheesy tacos and reading a copy of The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet. Will the real...

    Oldies but goodies: The Broker (see review above) isn't Denver's only restaurant in the over-twenty club. Tante Louise (4900 East Colfax) serves incredible French food, and the Normandy French Restaurant (1515 Madison) is pretty good, too. La Cueva (...

    The Super Bowl

    If you've lived in Denver at any time over the past 25 years, chances are pretty good that you've eaten at one of the Broker restaurants. Maybe it was for prom, or a tenth wedding anniversary, or a big business meeting, or a nooner. Maybe grandm...

    It Takes Two to Tangle

    Having two restaurants is a little like having two lovers. When you're with one, you're wondering what's going on with the other one. You go broke trying to make both of them happy, and you're too worn out to give either the attention it deserves. ...

    Sugar and Spice

    Denver's restaurants are multiplying so rapidly that businesses are forced to take on staff members who clearly aren't qualified, just so they have enough bodies to get the food out. I'm tired of being waited on by irritated eye-rollers who make it c...

    Keep a Lid on It

    In this country, tapas translates to hors d'oeuvres at appetizer prices. And that's fine, if you like eating little bits of food and then forking over large amounts of money. But on my visits to Denver's oh-so-trendy tapas places, I've found that...

    Fare to Remember

    Every year while on dining duty, I discover stand-out dishes--some so good that I must return to their home restaurants on my own time to sample them again. And 1997 was no exception: I ate at 200 or so restaurants and enjoyed so much wonderful food ...
