Mayor John Hickenlooper, in New York City for an appearance on Good Morning America earlier today, isn't taking off the rest of the day. He'll be pitching the city's restaurant scene to Food & Wine travel editor Jen Murphy.
Murphy's most recent Denver reference was in the September issue, which mentioned Rioja chef/owner Jen Jasinki's affection for cardomom shoots. (Jasinki's recipe for lemon mascarpone-stuffed dates was featured on the magazine's website this summer.) And Murphy's also profiled Biker Jim, a favorite of Jason Sheehan (who chronicled Biker Jim's recent adventures here in "Hot Dog!").
We hear that this time, Murphy's looking for good hole-in-the-wall suggestions. Any ideas? Beside the fact that Hickenlooper might want to ditch the holiday sweater before their meeting?
