    OGDEN NOSH

    If the first rule of creating a successful restaurant is location, location, location, the second is to come up with a marketable menu. Ogden Cafe owners Jin and Mercy Lee had the location thing locked when they settled into the old home of Footers, ...

    MOUTHING OFF

    A tip of the hat: A recent letter from two local waitpersons--Michael Rhodes and Heidi Hilliker--on the issue of tipping got me all wound up over that barbaric institution. As a former waitress, one who has worked at both Chinese joints where the ave...

    FRENCH TWIST

    If the dinosaurs had known ahead of time that all they needed to stave off extinction was a fresh, up-and-coming chef and a revamped menu, they would have put an ad in the Cretaceous Times posthaste. The Normandy didn't have to go that far, howev...

    RICE OF PASSAGE

    Without Chinese takeout, the falling-in-love scenes in movies just wouldn't be the same. First, there's the montage of the couple walking around the city, her in an oversized shirt, him in high-top sneakers; they're just getting to know each other. T...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Sometimes you feel like a Nut: The product Wheat Nuts ("the crunchy-good, nutty-tasting snack") crossed my desk last week, and, as always, I shared a jar with hungry co-workers. The response was unanimous: They taste like dry dog food. Further confir...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Strike while the irony is hot: Maybe it was only coincidence that the biggest freebie bash of the year, last Thursday's opening party for the new Rattlesnake Grill, was held on the same night as an open house at the Tivoli, where the original Rattles...

    PIGGING OUT

    Barbecue was once the province of the poor, an inexpensive way to entertain. Three days before the big party, the host would drop the pig into a smoldering pit. By the time guests started arriving for the festivities, the meat was dripping off the bo...

    A MOVABLE FEAST

    The owners of Greens restaurant have a few things to say about the importance of location. "Don't underestimate it," says Michael Nolting, speaking for himself as well as for wife Clare and Greens' chef, Hugh O'Neill. "We now know that the incant...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Warming trends: It's that time of year when restaurants start implementing their seasonal menus. Exhibit A: the Creekside Grill. I'd love to tell you all about two recent meals I ate there, but most of the things I tried aren't on the revised menu. ...

    THE OKAY CORRAL

    Restaurateurs keep stampeding into LoDo--but frankly, the joints already there are starting to run together. They attempt to offer the newest, the hippest and the hottest, but instead of a wide range of choices, we all seem to be dining at cadiranchc...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Diamond in the roughy: When I can't stomach another bean burrito but still long for those south-of-the-border spices (and prices), I opt for the less-refried Peruvian cooking. Although one of my favorite places, Sergio's in Lakewood, recently closed ...

    LET US GIVE THANKS

    Blessedly spared from Catholic schooling by a mother forced to convert long before Vatican II, I nonetheless endured the rigors of CCD (that's Catholic Sunday school to the lay folk), with its ruler-wielding nuns and interminably long prayers. One Su...

    MOUTHING OFF

    Brew news: Oktoberfest always reminds me of one splendid autumn evening when we sat in Munich's ridiculously touristy but fun Hoffbrau Haus with a bunch of eighty-year-old Germans who spoke not a lick of English. In lieu of verbal communication, they...

    STRIKE UP THE BLAND

    There's nothing like having a child of your own to give the phrase "family-style dining" real meaning. Finding restaurants that are kid-friendly is only slightly more difficult than finding restaurants that are happy to have you pay your bill with Mo...

    MOUTHING OFF

    A cure for the common cold: The ice cream in Italy is unlike any other in the world--and certainly unlike any in Denver. Although the term "gelato" is used to advertise the products of several local companies, none really comes close to the super-ric...

    FORT BRAG

    If there are people somewhere on the face of the earth who don't know about The Fort, it's not because Sam Arnold hasn't tried to reach them. A shameless promoter who hawks his Morrison restaurant like a culinary snake-oil salesman, Arnold has ma...

    Throwing a Fit: Call me crazy, but it seems to me that instead of paying for a product to remove pesticides and wax from our produce, consumers instead should be supporting our local organic-produce farmers. The product is called Fit Produce Rins...

    WHERE'S THE FIRE?

    The cash-poor college years can push many people to extremes. So it was only slightly surprising when, during a budget-minded trip to Pizza Hut, my then-boyfriend accepted a dare to down the entire contents of a shaker full of cracked red pepper. The...

    Get it while it's hot: Now here's reason to celebrate. So far, the section of Larimer Street up near Coors Field--now known as the Ballpark Neighborhood--has managed to keep its classic character relatively intact. While nearby LoDo is suffering thro...

    THE HELLAS WITH YOU!

    If Jimmy the Greek were putting odds on Jimmy's Greek restaurant, he'd probably say it was a sure thing. But then, Jimmy the Greek doesn't know that Denver diners are a real handicap for Greek restaurants. The Jimmy of Jimmy's--really Demetri...
