After a chef change, how has DiFranco's fared since March?

In March, when we announced our picks for Denver's best eats in our annual Best of Denver, DiFranco's earned the nod for Best Italian Restaurant.

That must've had owner Ryan DiFranco both smiling and sweating, because March was also the month that he and chef Joe Freemond parted ways.

Curious to see how the simple menu of housemade pastas, sandwiches (especially the meatball) and array of Italian cookies weathered the change, I decided it was time to check back in. See what I discovered when my review of DiFranco's is posted here tomorrow.
