    High steaks: Steak places are stampeding into town faster than cattle getting a whiff of water. Of Denver's many meat-eaters, the truly fickle have already moved on to Del Frisco's (8100 East Orchard Road, Greenwood Village), but does Del Frisco's ha...

    Soba, So Good

    Some chefs have such distinctive styles that you can tell when they've got their hands on a certain restaurant--they leave their fingerprints all over the place. Still, Oodles was the last place I expected to encounter a familiar face. This nood...

    To see or not to see: The joint was jumping last Monday on the opening day of Peter Schmitz's vehicular-homicide trial. No, not the courthouse, although there was plenty of action there, too. At lunchtime the new power place to be is Thuy-Hoa's Bar &...

    Sacred Cows

    Religion has a few simple benefits. By regularly attending a place of worship, one gains not only a sense of deep, abiding faith, but a clearer understanding of the difference between right and wrong. Families that observe religious traditions togeth...

    The more things change: The rough-and-tumble restaurant business leaves few eateries untouched. Except, perhaps, Club 404, a longtime oasis for cheap steaks at 404 Broadway (and a low-cost favorite of the meat-eating Chotzinoff family, above). Asked ...

    Beer today, gone tomorrow: On Saturday the three finalists in the Wynkoop Brewing Company-sponsored "Beerdrinker of the Year" contest came to town for a grueling round of questions by a panel of bewigged and wigged-out judges. And the winner (who rec...

    Raw Courage

    Fine dining is out, family dining is in. Horseradish mashed potatoes are out, expensive steaks are in. Iceberg-lettuce salads are out, soups are in. Most food fads fly, then flounder like a hooked trout. So who would would have thought that more than...

    Noodlin' around: Rhonda L. Damraur, whose letter to the editor appears on page 6 of this issue, works at Basil Pasta Bar--and no one's going to say she's not a loyal employee. Damraur wrote to complain about my review of the place at 30 South Broadwa...

    Big Bang! Theory

    Want more bang for your dining buck? Forget those theme-park "concepts" and million-dollar designs, the 350-seat restaurants that serve the same food you'll find in any other 350-seat restaurant. Instead, take aim at a neighborhood joint with charact...

    Begin again: Finnegan's in the Adam's Mark Hotel, 1550 Court Place, is now closed, bringing the number of food-serving Irish pubs in the area down to two (that I know of)--Nallen's Irish Pub, at 1429 Market Street, and Clancy's Irish Pub, at 10117 We...

    Isle Be Seeing You

    When the food is spectacular, bad service can be forgiven and forgotten--once. Maybe twice. But three strikes and you're out, baby, because few diners have either the time or the patience to spend two hours on a meal that should take one, no matter h...

    Everything's Sip-Shape

    The Pilgrims may have landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620 simply because they'd thrown one too many keggers on the Mayflower and their beer supply was low. Hey, they may have been Puritans, but they had their priorities straight. "For we could not now ta...

    Hopping mad: There's a right way to do a brewpub (see above) and a wrong way. Anyone interested in the latter should drop by the year-old Hops Grill and Bar Restaurant, at 149 Steele. The only nice thing I can say about this link in a Tampa-based cha...

    Oodles of Noodles

    In the dog-mangia-dog world of Italian restaurants, local eateries must work hard to create something that sets them apart. No longer is specializing in the food of Northern Italy or offering a wine roster of small regional vineyards enough, because ...

    A Removeable Feast
