There's a new chef at Zengo, and he's giving the upscale fusion eatery more of an Asian bent. In Chef and Tell this week, Gretchen Kurtz chatted with chef Robert Juan about growing up in Hawaii and cooking Filipino cuisine. And while Zengo may be moving away from some of its original Mexican flavors, Mark Antonation moved in on a stout Mexican sandwich when he found love at Tortas A Toda Madre on West 38th Avenue.

Live Basil Pizza is dead, at least in Colorado. Consumer Concept Group, the Denver-based company behind Live Basil and Smashburger, closed the remaining branches of the pizza chain earlier this week in order to focus on the growth of its Tom's Urban brand. There's still one Live Basil left, but it's in Los Angeles.
