This week, Mark Antonation followed up a list of the eleven best Chinese restaurants in Denver with a trio of American-Chinese classics for those who love their take-out. He also talked to the owners of Denver's newest — and only — vegan soul-food restaurant, Love, Peace & Sol Cafe, who are serving fresh juices and hearty, plant-based lunches in the Park Hill neighborhood. And further east in Northfield Stapleton, North Carolina pie chain Brixx Wood Fired Pizza opened its first Colorado outpost this week.

The owners of Boone's Tavern on East Evans Avenue are unveiling a new identity for the space — which many Denverites still remember as Fagan's — this weekend with the soft opening of the Rosedale, a slightly more upscale, family-friendly neighborhood bar and grill. Fans of Boone's will no doubt remember its lip-smacking green chile, which won a Best of Denver award in 2013. We'll miss that green chile (maybe the Rosedale will bring it back), but here's a list of the ten best spots to get green chile in Denver today.
