Q:The soupy green chile you find in Denver can be tasty, but it's not nearly as savory as what I grew up with in Santa Fe and Española. Do you know of any restaurants that serve a bowl of chile prepared in the manner of northern New Mexico?

A:Check out this week's review: The green chile at Julia Blackbird's (3617 West 32nd Avenue, 303-433-2688) is quintessential New Mexican ‹ simple, thick and packed with slow-simmered chiles. The Table Mountain Inn (1310 Washington Street, Golden, 303-277-9898) puts its sweeter, gravylike but still Southwestern-style green to good use at Sunday brunch. And the Best of Denver award-winning gringo green at CityGrille (321 East Colfax Avenue, 303-861-0726) comes with a bite that tastes of Taos.
