In this week's Westword, I review Row 14, a sleek spot in the Spire, a new downtown high rise. Arik Markus, the restaurant's chef and co-owner -- his cohort is front-of-the-house man David Schneider -- has put together a menu that's as polished as the environs, and I had one of the best meals I've had in a long time as a result.

Here, to go with the Row 14 review, is a serving of food porn. See more photos of Row 14 in a slide show.
