What you might have missed this week on Cafe Society while shoving chicken wings down your throat...

Carnivorous anti-vegetarian Jason Sheehan trots out the city's top cow temples in his Denver's Ten Best Steakhouses roundup.

At Dish, the Westword Menu Affair, Argyll Gastropub executive chef Sergio Romero and Jay Spickelmier, the exec at Jing, battle for rights to the marshmallow statue during the Mile High Chef Competition.

Lori Midson gets her tarot cards read while interviewing Panzano chef Elise Wiggins, who dishes on everything from bulls' balls to her most embarrassing moment -- the day her butt mooned the dining room.

In an attempt to give the great foodniks in this city their say about the state of Denver's dining scene, Sheehan gives power to the people after polling the people in Westword's 1st Annual Cafe Society Poll about Food and Chefs and Stuff.

Marczyk Fine Food's co-owner Pete Marczyk delivers a dissertation, followed by a recipe for green chile stew, in What's Cooking?

Ron Fisher reports that Zaidy's Downtown Deli, which had recently become a mass of fusion confusion, finally put all confusion to rest by going dark.

Nancy Levine goes behind the bar with Nate Windham from the Office@Blondies.

And last, but not least, Teague Bohlen rants about weight-loss ads that make us want to hurl.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
