Hop to It: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, March 21-25
Chef Todd Somma arranging a Husband & Wife salad at Hop Alley.
Gretchen Kurtz checked out Hop Alley this week, chatting with chef Todd Somma about the traditional Chinese dishes he's turning out in River North. Meanwhile, Mark Antonation was exploring international cuisine a little farther east, with samples of goat and spaghetti from Somali eatery Kin Resaurant and Korean-Chinese noodles from P & Y Cafe on South Parker Road.
Despite all the new restaurants popping up around town, it seems that Denverites are most excited about the return of an old Favorite: Godfather's Pizza. In other news:
