Chefs in the News: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, May 9-13

Chefs were in the news this week as Mary Nguyen announced the imminent closing of her longtime Uptown neighborhood gem P17, to be balanced by the opening of a second Olive & Finch in Cherry Creek North. And Elise Wiggins ended her decade-plus run at Panzano, one of our favorite Italian restaurants in town; she'll be announcing a new project soon. Also balancing bitter and sweet, Troy Guard explained why he pulled the plug on his Lowry outpost of Bubu, and talked about the idea behind its replacement, Lucky Cat.

Gretchen Kurtz's chef chat this week was with Bob Sargent of the Ghost BBQ in Boulder, which has been doing brisk brisket business since opening last fall. In other news:
