Root Down takes off at DIA, Cafe Berlin is grounded -- our Restaurant Roll Call for August
Root Down at DIA is ready for takeoff on September 1.
More than a dozen new restaurants opened this month -- some, like Comida in the Source, new spots in ancient, converted spaces, and other old favorites reborn in the same places, including Angelo's Taverna, in the forty-year-old home of Angelo's. The scene also lost some mainstays, with Cafe Berlin closing for good, and Highlands Garden Cafe shuttering on August 31 until next April. Keep reading for our Restaurant Roll Call for August.
Angelo's Taverna has an airy new look inside -- and a great patio.
