This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed To the Wind Bistro, a tiny -- but mighty -- new restaurant that she considers a breath of fresh air. For Chef and Tell, Mark Antonation visited Sushi Den and spoke with Yasu Kizaki, one of the brothers who landed on South Pearl Street thirty years ago and put Denver on the international sushi map. And our photographer stopped by the Denver County Fair, where our apple pot pie won second place. (See the full pie-eating contest -- no pot -- slide show here).
