Bonnie Brae Tavern turns eighty, T-Wa closes: A second helping of Cafe Society June 2-6

This week in Cafe Society, Gretchen Kurtz reviewed Chai & Chai in Aurora, an inconsistent but still intriguing dual-identity restaurant. For Chef and Tell, Lori Midson talked with Jeff Jones, the chef at P17, which Mary Nguyen opened in what had been the home of Parallel 17. And Mark Antonation started his Ethniche exploration of Ethiopian food with a visit to Queen of Sheba. See also: Wott's happening at the Queen of Sheba on Colfax

Also this week, in celebration of National Doughnut Day, we counted down the top ten doughnuts in Denver. And since summer is in full gear everywhere but on the calendar, we also highlighted ten food trucks that are ideal for an outdoor meal. And finally, we said happy birthday to Bonnie Brae Tavern, which turns eighty today.
