Reader: Satchel's may be a neighborhood joint, but for what neighborhood?
Andrew Casalini at Satchel's on 6th.
Andrew Casalini and his wife, Jen Dactano, opened Satchel's on 6th just over a year ago, but the restaurant at 1710 East Sixth Avenue -- a replacement for Satchel's Market, the Park Hill market-turned-restaurant they closed in the fall of 2010 -- is on its third chef.
Jared Brant was the opening chef at Satchel's on 6th, but he was quickly replaced by Kurt Boucher, an Iron Chef challenger who was in the kitchen when Laura Shunk reviewed Satchel's on 6th last fall. And at the end of February, Casalini brought in a third exec to run the line: Matt Marcheselli.
Says Cap Hill Cowboy:
For a neighborhood joint, even on the fringe of Cherry Creek, the food was too pricey. We went there and dropped over $100 for the two of us and the food was pretty run-of-the-mill. Why can't anyone put a "neighborhood" spot in that serves great food and has a wonderful atmosphere that won't leave you with ticket shock. Oh wait, they did. They called it Steuben's and it's packed.
