This week's review took me to Phat Thai, the restaurant that chef Mark Fischer opened in Cherry Creek North, extending his empire east after opening the original Phat Thai in Carbondale, where he also has the excellent Six89. I wasn't expecting Phat Thai to be authentic -- the website and menu both dispel any notion that Fischer might be trying to accomplish that, anyway -- but I did expect it to be delicious.

I wasn't bowled over by everything I had, but here, to go with the review, are a few photos of the hits.
