Having a Lark: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, May 4-8
Meadolark's burger is no lemon.
This week we cooked up a list of the ten best burgers in Denver; Meadowlark Kitchen, which Gretchen Kurtz reviews this week, landed in the top ten with an egg-and-bacon extravaganza that she says is perfect for people who are "up for whatever." Another lark made the list, too: Larkburger, which we praised for its simplicity and attention to temperature.
In beer news, Jonathan Shikes brought word that River North Brewery will be moving from its home of the last three years, possibly out of the River North district altogether. Nearby in Five Points, Mark Antonation kicked off a month of soul food with a visit to the Welton Street Cafe. In other news:
The slurping kicked of at Osaka Ramen on Tuesday.
