    MOUTHING OFF

    A pizza the action: Of all the calls I get asking for restaurant recommendations, the majority involve pizza. People want to know where to get thin crust, thick crust, New York sloppy, Chicago deep-dish, Spago gourmet. Unfortunately, Denver is not th...

    FARE FOR THE COMMON FAN

    In the mid-Eighties, stadiums began upgrading the food service at sporting events. It changed my life. Before that, baseball games were something to be tolerated. During the give-and-take years of dating, my presence at a game usually came as a t...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Covering all the bases: Coors Field is the first ballpark to feature its own in-house microbrewery, the Coors-owned Sandlot, but it won't be the last. How many sports arenas across the country plan to put one in? "All of them," says Richard Hesse, fo...

    BLOWING HOT AND COLD

    My grandmother has a foolproof, color-coded formula for assembling a meal that balances all the basic food groups. It's as simple as this: There has to be something orange, brown, red, green and white. If she's serving steak (brown), then carrots (or...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Over the Barrel: Since Cracker Barrel cracked open its combination restaurant/country stores in Thornton and Colorado Springs in May, I've been bombarded with phone calls and letters from citizens who are boycotting the national chain. This quote fro...

    WAITING FOR THE DOUGH

    We bring our family to a restaurant that bills itself as "family-style" and are promptly told to go to the bar with our child and wait thirty minutes, even though there are twenty empty tables within sight. When we are seated--thankfully only twenty ...

    MOUTHING OFF

    The bested of Denver: Now that I've put a few weeks between myself and the June 28 Best of Denver issue, I can finally stomach thinking about all the food I consumed for it--and all the questions I received after it came out. For every restaurant tha...

    THE TRAIN GANG

    In one evening, we saw two biker chicks in leather bras, a gaggle of businessmen bearing briefcases, four polyester-clad women double-checking their just-done hair, and two families celebrating birthdays. All aboard for the Denver ChopHouse & Bre...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Hello, Dolly: Without the wig, the makeup and the five-inch heels, Melissa Lee looks like any other pretty bartender, albeit an unusually well-endowed one. But when Lee, one of Denver's best drink mixers, dons the fringed leather, the skintight pants...

    FISH OUT OF WATER

    Since the only thing lying between Denver and the deep blue sea is a two-hour plane trip, the notion that we can't get fresh fish here doesn't hold water. The fact is, we can get our hands on seafood in less time than it takes the average Los Angelen...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Try to come up with a more obvious recipe for disaster: I get an invitation to dine at the home of a woman who tells me that she and the entire "Filipino community" of Denver are upset over my recent review of the area's only Filipino restaurant, Nip...

    THE EGGPLANT AND I

    In restaurant circles, you frequently hear the saying, "If you like to cook, don't become a chef." Seasoned chefs will tell you that they got into the business because they loved working with food and serving their beautiful creations to others. Unti...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Here today, gone tomorrow: Back in January, Leo Goto challenged his Wellshire Inn staff to make the restaurant "five-star quality." When they failed to do so, Goto fired chef Steve Ford (and quite a few others) and brought in the talented Lance Katch...

    AL DENTE IN THE FAMILY

    Some people are lucky enough to have fond memories of a mother calling out "Supper time!" to a horde of hungry youngsters who vied for the last bite of homemade meatball. But for those whose food pasts contained no more warmth than a cold can of Spag...

    Cooking the books: At the end of each spring, publishers shower the food world with new cookbook releases. Although no copies of To Serve Man have yet crossed my desk, it wouldn't surprise me if one did, considering the variety of books that have bee...

    FARE WARS

    MOUTHING OFF

    Something's brewing: Civilization moved south last December, when Columbine Mill Brewery and Pizza opened at 5798 Rapp Street in Littleton. This renovated, century-old former grain mill now turns out five microbrews--a stout, a red, a light, a pale a...

    MOUTHING OFF

    MEX AND MATCH

    The fight is on. In this corner, we have a chain restaurant that advertises fresh, high-quality Mexican food, a fun family atmosphere and low prices. What it actually delivered, though, was sub-mediocre food, prices higher than those at any authen...
