How Long Would You Wait for Brunch? A Second Helping of Cafe Society, September 2-5

Do good things come in small packages? That's been Gretchen Kurtz's experience this summer; she's reviewed a number of tiny restaurants over the past few months, most recently Bistro Barbès, and found that while the kitchens may be tiny, they cook up big flavors. And speaking of big flavors, before Mark Antonation left barbecue behind and moved on to Indian cuisine for Ethniche, he checked in with barbecue expert (and James Beard Award-winning author) James Miller for this week's Chef and Tell.

How long would you wait for brunch this weekend? That's what we asked in our newest video project, which checked in with diners waiting outside the original Snooze and Denver's Lucile's; watch it on our Westword Cafe video site. And we checked in with Frank Bonanno on the fate of Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria, one of this week's closings.
