Celebrity-starved Denver has a new star -- and he didn't arrive empty-handed.
Pastry chef and Food Network personality Keegan Gerhard and his wife, Lisa Bailey, moved to Denver earlier this year, and today they'll unveil D Bar Desserts, their jewel-box of a bakery/dessert bar at 1475 East 17th Avenue, right next to Strings.
D Bar will open at 11 a.m. today and every day, and stay open until late in the evening, so that people heading home from a night on the town can stop off for a final slice of chocolate cake or a Rice Krispie treat. (To see if the place is still cooking, call 303-861-4780.)
For a sampling of the treats in store for Denver, check out the Food Network archives, which include a Food Network Challenge show filmed in November 2006, when pastry chefs vied to create the most marvelous cake for Keegan and Lisa's Texas wedding. -- Patricia Calhoun
