Chef Duy Pham returns to Denver to open Epernay, a new sous-vide restaurant and raw bar downtown

Back before we had rock star chefs strutting their gimmicks on the Food Network, Denver had Duy Pham, who first made a (big) name for himself as the ridiculously young chef of the long-departed Tante Louise. He followed that illustrious gig with stints at Opal on Ninth Avenue, a restaurant called Kyoto Asian Fusion that opened in Littleton and went the way of Southwestern cuisine not long after, and then he became the exec at Aqua, a short-lived restaurant in the Beauvallon.
