Chefs Blake Edmunds and Max MacKissock have worked on numerous projects together, but Señor Bear is the purest distillation of their intelligence and adventurousness. The bright and festive Latin American cantina, with its Peruvian mirrors and the soft glow of its long central bar, might initially come across as Mexican, given its hefty margaritas and queso fundido, plus carnitas and “el pollo bronco” chicken strips. But the menu is much broader, and the standout dishes — such as Puerto Rican mofongo re-envisioned for the Rocky Mountains, Peruvian saltado made with broccoli, not beef, and Oaxacan mole negro with squash — reveal these subtle influences while showcasing the creativity of the kitchen.
