For my review in this week's Westword, I landed at Crimson Canary, the newest concept from Joey Newman and brothers Andre and Aaron Lobato, the trio that brought Denver Interstate Kitchen & Bar. When they took over the old Mona's address on South Broadway, they filled it with a concept they call "Boss Italian," paying homage to the romanticized version of old Italian joints celebrated in Hollywood films in the '70s, but modernizing that vision and making it relevant for today's dining scene.

And they did one hell of a job. But what makes Crimson Canary really sing is the food. Here, to go with the review, is a side of photos. For more of this spot, check out our slide show.
