On the kind of unseasonably warm days we've been enjoying this week, it's impossible not to start thinking about Denver's best patios. Some, like the patio at Jax, are just slivers of sidewalk with great people-watching; others are vast expanses of deck that create this city's best approximation of a beach (Emerald Isle). And still others are magical, secret gardens.
But it's no secret that we recently lost one of the town's best courtyard gardens when Buenos Aires Grill closed last month. Now its former home at 2191 Arapahoe Street in the old Paris Hotel (first pioneered as a restaurant by the legendary La Coupole) is again available, and the featured property at Sanborn and Company.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
