Visiting Venice, Via LoDo

Sometimes these weekly missives are about time and the progression through it of a menu, a chef, an address. Sometimes they're about history, which isn't the same as time, because time is smooth and steady, and history is, well, bumpy. History is the story of peaks and jags in time, and food often captures these chronological features quite handily.

Sometimes they're about an event. Most often they're about me, because I am afflicted somewhat with egomaniacal leanings and enjoy being the highly opinionated filter through which these many meals slip. And sometimes -- although rarely, I must admit -- they're even about the food....

This week is all about the food.

Don't believe it? Then pick up the October 26 issue -- or come back to this website later today -- to read my complete review of Venice Ristorante in LoDo. And then offer up your own views as a comment on this blog.— Jason Sheehan
