Cafe Society

From desserts to dives, a second helping of Cafe Society: January 13-17

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Acorn, an offshoot of Oak at Fourteenth that opened last summer in The Source and has already come into its own. For Chef and Tell, Lori Midson talked with chef/co-owner Noah French about another new spot, Sugarmill, a sweet spot that is much more than a dessert place. And in his travels up Federal Boulevard, Mark Antonation reached Santiago's for this week's Federal Case.

Also on Cafe Society this week, we also rolled out the 24 things on our Food and Drink Bucket List, and updated our list of the best dive bars in Denver, a list that gets shorter every year as new owners renovate old watering holes.

And in case anyone could possibly have missed the news, we also covered the grand opening of Voodoo Doughnut, where Mayor Michael Hancock bit into a big one. and Sweet Cow opened its third outlet in Boulder.
